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 Stone Hall there are two communities for residents: Experience the Outdoors Living Learning Community and the Substance Free floor. Any student in good standing is eligible to live in the Wellness Community.
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.
1st Floor – Experience the Outdoors Living Learning Community
Living Learning Communities (LLC) at UMF give students a unique, inclusive, residential experience, with the added benefit of living among peers who share similar goals and interests. Being an active member of an LLC, students get an opportunity to build partnerships with other students and staff while engaging in purposeful, interactive programs and events. Students will develop a sense of belonging while they share and deepen their passion.
UMF is in the perfect location for students who are interested in outdoor recreation! But did you know outdoor activities are used in a wide variety of careers, including education, counseling and therapy, health and wellness, environmental conservation, and many more? The mission of the Outdoor Action and Adventure Community is to help UMF students learn how to incorporate outdoor activities and adventures into their lives and careers. A creative team of peer leaders, staff, alumni, and community outdoor leaders will facilitate outdoor adventure programs and field trips for the students, and Outdoor Action and Adventure students will have a chance to plan an outdoor program in the local community. Undergraduate students in any major who are interested in further developing their leadership skills are welcome in this LLC. Students of this community will sign an additional community agreement indicating active participation in the community.
