Students in res hall room

Studying in a residence hall

UMF offers convenient and affordable on-campus housing options. Incoming students will be asked to complete the Housing Application and the Room and Board license (available on myCampus).

Students will be sent their housing assignment and roommate information in early July for fall admits and in December for January admits.


Our research has shown that our most successful students — those who became truly immersed in all we have to offer: academics, extracurricular activities, social life, research, volunteer opportunities, everything —  lived on campus their very first year. In fact, on-campus residency has proven to be so valuable to our students’ success, we’ve made it a requirement for first-year students. Learn more about our residency requirement here.

Meal Plan for First-Year Students

All first-year students live on campus and will have the all-access meal plan. This meal plan allows for unlimited visits to the dining hall and also carries $100 declining balance to be used in the Beaver Lodge and Mantor Cafe.

The declining balance carries between semesters and expires at the end of the academic year. Additions to declining balances can be purchased at any time during the semester.
