University Housing and Dining Services

University Housing provides residential experiences that empower students to become confident, successful, lifelong learners who are dedicated to service.

Living on campus is a great choice and an integral part of the complete college experience. With a broad spectrum of opportunities designed to complement your academic endeavors, you'll be part of a community where you can grow and experience life independently, yet have support to help you excel on campus. Plus, there's always something happening!

In support of UCM's Learning to a Greater Degree, UCM requires first-year and sophomore students under the age of 21 to reside on campus as part of a two-year residency requirement. Freshmen and sophomores are also required to have specified meal plans.
