Scott Hall-South is a mixed-themed community offering a variety of room types ranging from singles to quads. Residents of Scott-South also have access to the large main floor lounge of the Scott Hall Complex where they can shoot pool and play board games with friends and do group study sessions.

Scott-South is part of the Scott Hall Complex, which also includes Scott-North and Scott-West. The Scott Hall complex, located on Main Street across from the UMF Admissions Office, is UMF’s largest residence hall, an expansive 3-story building.

The lower level of Scott-South has a large laundry room and the lower level of Scott-North, to which Scott-South is connected, has a full kitchen.

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 six 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.


Building Description

Lowest Level

  • Traditional single-sex rooms by neighbor community

1st & 2nd Floor

  • Single-gender community comprised entirely of women

3rd Floor

UMF is full of diverse cultures, religions, ideologies, gender identities and sexual orientations. In acknowledgement of this, we have developed a community to reject discrimination and instead foster personal and professional growth in the students, especially around one’s personal identity, in a diverse and global community.

Although the 1st and 2nd floors of Scott-South are single-sex rooms by neighbor, the University allows for students on the 3rd floor of Scott Hall to choose a gender inclusive placement.

  • The GLOBE community aims to denounce discrimination and cultivates an environment of inclusiveness through collaboration and increased awareness.
  • Members of this community are encouraged to develop a conscience awareness of themselves and others, to connect their experiences to their role as students, to take personal responsibility to learn more, to participate in self-reflection, to continue the conversation, to engage in the UMF community, and to practice empathy and acceptance while developing skills and insights for the purpose of becoming engaged allies.
  • Gender constraints are removed in this community, allowing students to choose their roommate, providing students of different genders the ability to live together.
  • Members of this community are expected to establish and maintain a safe, respectful and welcoming environment focused on a sense of belonging where respectful expression is encouraged.
  • A component of community programming on this floor is focused on increasing knowledge and understanding of the diversity found on the Farmington campus.

The floors in the Scott Complex are distinct by number, floor from ground level up, and by direction, defined as North, South, and West. The beds are not bunked; however, if upon moving in all roommates want the beds bunked, University staff will assist is setting this up. Please note that the All-Access Meal Plan is required for all First-Year Students.
