Residence Life

Residence Life

Muskingum University is a true residential community, where more than 90 percent of students live on campus or in the village of New Concord. So where will you live?

Muskingum’s living options range from traditional residence halls, sorority, fraternity and social club houses to Lakeside houses, and townhouses.

On the East and West campus hills you’ll find housing with newly furnished lounges, computer labs, and laundry facilities. Each of our six traditional residence halls has a personality of its own- with the layouts, furniture, and building style differing from the next. All of our traditional halls are outfitted with Proximity Access Card readers, permitting only the residents assigned to the building to access them with their student ID cards.

After your first year, you may want to consider living in some of our alternative housing options. Located on Lakeside Drive on the east side of campus, students can apply to live with friends in our Lakeside houses. Located near the softball field on the west side of campus, students can apply to live in our Townhouses, a very independent living option. These alternative housing options are not outfitted with the Proximity Access Card reading system currently.

Regardless of where you live, you’ll find residential life at Muskingum is more than just a place to live. All of our facilities provide the chance to belong to a community within the larger campus. You’ll quickly feel right at home – and if you’re looking for someone to share a late night pizza, compare notes, or take an early morning jog around the track, you won’t have to go far!

Housing selection information for all rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors can be found here: Housing Selection Booklet.

Muskingum University is a residential campus and has a 6 semester residency requirement. The full policy can be found here. Please remember to speak with representatives in Student Financial Services to address all financial responsibility and changes before submitting your request.

In Search of a Roommate?

Many students are looking for a roommate for the upcoming year. We are here to help! We are in the process of creating a form on Roompact to help connect students who are in need of a roommate. Keep an eye out on the Student Digest and your email for the link to be sent out!


**Single, Triple, and Quad Selection**

New this year, singles, triples, and quads will have a separate selection process.  If you would like to live in a single, triple, or quad next year, you need to fill out the Roompact form found here by 5:00 pm March 22.  Signing up for this process does not guarantee you will get one of these spaces, it is to notify the office of interest and who plans to go through the process.  The selection process for singles, triples, and quads will take place Monday, March 26 at 5:00 pm in the TOC.

Lottery Numbers

New this year, lottery numbers have been emailed out to all students who are eligible to live on campus.  Please check your email for your lottery number.  If you lose the email or forget your number, you can find it out in the TOC.

**Doubles Draw - Tuesday, April 3, 4:00 pm**

New this year, anyone who doesn’t select a specialty housing option will participate in Doubles Draw.  Both roommates should attend or send the Authorization to House form and Housing License and Food Service Plan completed.  Lottery numbers will be called determining the order of rooms selected.  The best number for the pair will serve as the number for the pair to come forward and select their room from those available.
