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!
