With 80% of students living on campus, we understand the importance of making St. Mary’s College a home away from home. We strive to make your housing experience as unique as you. One size fits none.
The Office of Residence Life manages many aspects of the residential experience at St. Mary’s College and is focused on helping students live and learn through a suite of recreational, educational, and cultural programs designed to enrich the residential experience.
A wide variety of housing options–from traditional to apartments, suites, and townhouse styles–means you’ll find a place to call your own.
- On-campus housing is guaranteed, but not required, for all students
- Most first-year students start off in traditional residence halls (Caroline, Dorchester, Prince George, or Queen Anne) where there is more staff supervision, programming, and support
- Upperclassmen often live in the Lewis Quadrangle (LQ), the Townhouses or Waring Commons (WC) apartments for more independence
