Mallett Hall is the Scholars Community, an option for students who want to live in a quiet community with a focus on scholastic achievement. Residents in Mallet Hall must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher to live in this community. It offers single and double-style rooms.

On the main level of the hall is a large study lounge and game room. It also has a working piano, and yes, it actually gets played! The lower level of Mallett has a large laundry room and full kitchen.

Residents of Mallett Hall have the ability to choose an optional gender-inclusive room placement where their roommate preference is not based on gender.

Because restrooms are community-style, during the first floor meeting an anonymous vote occurs where students can voice their thoughts on restroom designations. If a resident would like restrooms to be gender-specific, then restrooms are designated as such for the floor.

Residing in this building is a professional staff member (called a Graduate Area Coordinator) who assists in the development of communal living. This staff person is responsible for enhancing residents’ college experience by assisting in promoting programs within the hall.

Programs designed by the four Community Assistants in the hall promote the development of both academic and social skills. A Community Assistant is an upper class UMF student who assists in building community within their areas, as well as help residents get involved in the campus community through various programming initiatives.

The floors in Mallett are distinct by number, floor from ground level up. The beds are not bunked; however, if upon moving in all roommates want the beds bunked, University staff will assist. Please note that the All-Access Meal Plan is required for all First-Year Students.
