Campus Housing

Housing Policy

All first-time freshmen must live in the residence halls unless they are married, at least 21 years of age or commuting from their parent’s or legal guardian’s primary residence within 60 miles of Maryville (where they lived during high school). Students who are not first-time freshmen or those who are at least 21 years of age are not required to live on campus.

The housing agreement is for contracted periods, typically the fall and spring. Thus, release from the agreement at the end of the fall semester will not be automatic nor should it be assumed.

Commuting to campus

Freshman, transfer and returning students who meet the commuting criteria must complete and return the Commuting to Northwest card View PDF within two weeks of receipt. Apartments and other rental properties in Maryville are limited; therefore, housing should be secured as early as possible before the start of the term.
