Stone Hall is UMF’s Wellness Community, providing housing to students who choose to support, initiate and promote the principles of a healthy lifestyle and who want to live in an environment free of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. It offers a variety of room types ranging from singles to quads.
Within the Wellness Community are two communities for Outdoor Enthusiasts and for those wanting a Quiet Floor. Any student in good standing is eligible to live in the Wellness Community.
Residents of Stone Hall sign a community agreement. In this community, the University is committed to following the eight dimensions of wellness, social, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, environmental, emotional, financial, and physical. To accomplish this, many of the programs in the hall are focused on wellness.
Lower Level and 1st Floor
- The Outdoor Enthusiasts community is for those who love the active outdoors lifestyle: hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, kayaking, canoeing, nature walks, etc.
- Also good for those with an interest in a career related to the outdoors and ORBA, Alpine Ops, and more.
- The Quiet Floor seeks to maintain an environment conducive to sleep and study throughout the day.
- The residents of this floor strive to be more considerate to and respectful of the desires of their hall-mates to enable them to stick to their own sleep, work and study schedules.
Although Stone Hall is typically single-sex rooms by neighbor, the University allows for students to choose a gender inclusive placement in this hall.
The lower level of Stone Hall has a large laundry room and 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 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 the Stone Hall 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.
