Housing Deposit Collection Process for Returning Students

All students must pay a $300 non-refundable housing deposit in order to participate in the room selection process for the 2017-18 academic year.

While you don't need to submit your deposit on the first day, we hope that you don't wait until the last minute.

Payment during the week of deposit collection (March 20–24) ensures activation of your pre-assigned assignment time. Deposits made after March 24 may result in a delay in your ability to sign-up during the online process.

To pay your housing deposit for 2017-18, submit a $300 payment through the ORL Campus Living Website.

Housing Deposit Payment Methods

All housing deposit payments must be made through the ORL Campus Living website in order to activate a student’s assignment time and make them eligible to participate in the online selection process.  Payments for this process should not be made through Marquette Central.

You should verify your assignment time within 24 hours after your housing deposit payment has been processed.

Complete information about Housing Selection is available online.



Am I required to live in a university residence hall?
All unmarried first and second year students, regardless of their academic classification, are required to live in the residence halls.

Will paying the deposit early guarantee a better sign-up time?
No. All students are given a random assignment time with current first year students having the earliest assignment times followed by all other returning students.

Can we pay for the deposit online or through Marquette Central?
In order to activate your randomly assigned assignment time, your housing deposit must be submitted directly through the ORL Campus Living Website. Any payments made through Marquette Central would be applied to your overall balance and would not activate your assignment time.

Is a refund possible if I decide to leave Marquette? 
The housing deposit is non-refundable, however deposit refund requests may be considered for students who notify the university of their intent to withdrawal by June 1, 2017.

Note: All unmarried first and second year students, regardless of their academic classification, are required to live in the residence halls.

This process is for current Marquette students only. Incoming Freshmen/Transfers should click here for information on the assignment process for admitted students.
