A limited number of rooms in a university residence hall are available from early August until the Wednesday before classes start – also known as “Move-in Day” for new undergraduate students. The rooms provide temporary housing for students waiting to move into their permanent housing or for students who are still arranging permanent housing. Depending upon the number of student requests, two students may be assigned to each room. The fee for temporary housing is reasonable, typically less than a hotel room. The cost is $12 per night or $84 per week. Temporary housing is available from August 8-20. All students must depart from the temporary room on or before August 20.
If you want assistance with temporary housing, you must submit the Arrival Information Form by July 25.
If your family members will accompany you to Marquette, we recommend that you make reservations directly with a local hotel as soon as possible. There are many cultural events in Milwaukee, and sometimes hotels become filled. More information about hotels in downtown Milwaukee and other travel information is available on the "Visit Marquette" webpage.
Undergraduate students living on-campus: If you submitted an application for a university residence hall, you may move into your residence hall on “Move-In Day” - the Wednesday of orientation week. More information about living on-campus is available on the "Life at Marquette" webpage. And don’t forget to check out information about specialty housing options like the Engineering or the CommUNITY floors.
Exchange students: If you have been assigned to housing in Campus Town Apartments, you may move into your assigned apartments on August 16.
Students living off-campus: Plan to arrive early enough to locate satisfactory accommodations. The Office of University Apartments and Off-Campus Student Services can help you begin your search for an apartment. You may contact this office via e-mail or visit the Off-Campus Student Services webpage.
All new students are required to live in a university residence hall during their first two years of study unless they are 21 years old or older, more than two years out of high school or living with their parents. If you wish to request a waiver of this policy, please contact OIE as soon as possible.
Students who desire a halal diet can request special arrangements with Marquette’s food service to provide a basic halal entrée/main course option to supplement the standard dining offerings already acceptable for halal. If you wish to request such arrangements, please send your request to OIE.
