Campus Living Portal

Log into the Campus Living portal through Checkmarq

In Checkmarq, click on the Housing/Meals section to enter the Campus Living Portal.


The Campus Living portal allows students to manually complete housing tasks throughout their college career: paying deposits, selecting residence halls and apartments, adding meal plans, etc.

Students will use the Campus Living portal to book an apartment during the Apartment Selection Process.  Prior to doing so, students must submit a deposit to the University Apartments office - which can be completed through Campus Living.  Finally, students use Campus Living to sign their lease for the University Apartments.

Apartment Availability

Throughout the process, students are able to monitor apartment availability through the "View Available Rooms" section of Campus Living.  This is updated in real time.

In Checkmarq, click on the Housing/Meals section to enter the Campus Living Portal.

1. Click on "View Available Rooms" under the University Apartments section of the Campus Living portal.

2. Use the drop-down menus to search for a specific room type (all fields optional):

  • Building - view available units in a particular building
  • Room Type - view specific room types in a particular building (e.g. Campus Town East studios)
  • Bed Spaces Available - view the apartments that can accommodate your specific roommate group size

3. After narrowing your search, results can be viewed by selecting a building; click on a building to view the specific availability in the next frame.  (The arrows to the left of the building name can be used to expand/collapse the various communities).

4. Search results are displayed in the next frame; showing building, building code, apartment number, and total capacity.  For example:

Campus Town East

CE-0247 (4 available)

"# Available" indicates capacity of the apartment.  (This is a two-bedroom apartment that can fit 2-4 people).

(Please review the details of apartment capacity here).

Please remember that apartment availability will continually change as current residents re-select or switch apartments, and as new applicants select apartment during the general selection process.


 

Apartment Selection

Selecting a specific apartment is very similar to searching for availability, but there are a number of additional steps to take to add roommates and correctly book an apartment.

The individual with the earliest selection time can sign into Campus Living and complete the booking for themselves and all roommates.

The Campus Living Website uses in-frame navigation buttons, such as “Next Step,” “Previous Step,” “Release Lock,” etc.  Please use these buttons to move forward or backward during the Apartment Selection Process.  We do not recommend using your browser’s navigation buttons.

Prior to selecting an apartment, we recommend that you review the information on Bedspace Selection, Individual and Joint Leasing, Apartment Capacity, and Lease Length.

In Checkmarq, click on the Housing/Meals section to enter the Campus Living Portal.

1. Click on "Apartment Selection" under the University Apartments section of the Campus Living portal.

2. Roommate Selection

  • If you are planning to book an apartment with roommates, you need to add them in advance of choosing an apartment.
  • Do not try to assign yourself as your own roommate.
  • To add a Roommate:
    • Click on the green “+” button
    • Enter your roommate’s MUID (aka University ID) or first and last name
      • Do not use the "RMS ID" field
    • Click “Search”
    • “Roommate Group PIN” = Roommate's MUID.  Use their MUID a second time in the Roommate Group PIN field to confirm
    • Click “Select” to add them to your roommate group
    • Repeat for additional roommates (if applicable)

3. Search and Select an Apartment

  • Use the drop-down menus to search for a specific room type.
  • We highly recommend using the Room Type and Bed Spaces Available fields.  The latter will help ensure that you are searching for apartments that can accommodate you and your entire roommate group
    • For example, some 2-bedrooms in Campus Town East can only accommodate 2 people, while some can accommodate 2, 3, or 4.  Please review Apartment Capacity for details.
  • Additional details on specific apartments can be ascertained from building floorplans.

4. After narrowing your search, results can be viewed by selecting a building; click on a building to view the specific apartment availability in the neighboring frame.  (The arrows to the left of the building name can be used to expand/collapse the various buildings).

Search results are displayed in the next frame; showing building, building code, apartment number, and total capacity.  For example:

Campus Town East

CE-0247 (4 available) 

"# Available" indicates capacity of the apartment.  (This is a two-bedroom apartment that can fit 2-4 people).

(Please review the details of apartment capacity here).

5. To select a room, click on the yellow lock button to the right.

6. Current Locks / Assign Bedspaces

  • You must assign yourself, your roommates (if applicable), and any buyouts (if applicable) to a bedspace.
  • Please review “Bedspace Selection." This guide provides detailed information that can greatly aid in completing this step appropriately.  This is particularly helpful to understanding:

7. Lock Status / Confirmation

  • This screen will show your apartment and bedspace assignment and that of any roommates.
  • You may see each roommate listed twice. This is normal and corresponds to the fall and spring semesters.
    • Please note that once again this is only a placeholder; your actual lease length will be determined at the time of lease signing. (Please see “Lease Length” for more details).

8. Click on "Finish" to finalize your booking.


 

Lease Signing

In advance of signing any lease, we recommend that you review all leasing documents and apartment rates, and that you review the detailed lease signing information and frequently asked questions.  The following are simply the step-by-step instructions for completing a lease signing within the Campus Living system.

In Checkmarq, click on the Housing/Meals section to enter the Campus Living Portal.

1. Click on "Sign Your Lease" under the University Apartments section of the Campus Living portal.

2. Select your leasing dates from the drop-down menu.  Please remember to review the Flexible Leasing options available in the University Apartments. 

  • We encourage students to sign only for the amount of time that they are certain they will be leasing. 
    • Adding the preceding summer to your lease, or extending a lease for the spring semester, can happen at a later date.
    • If a student signs a lease but later wish to shorten it, they are nonetheless obligated to fulfill the terms of the lease, or must find a sublessor to take their place.
  • Adding time to a lease is typically possible; removing time from a lease is not possible.

3. Review your apartment assignment, leasing dates, and rental rate.

  • Campus Town, Gilman, Frenn, McCabe rates: The rates displayed are the monthly rate for the entire apartment unit, and are divided evenly amongst all roommates (if applicable) who sign a lease for a corresponding time period.  We ask that roommates all discuss their leasing plans with one another in advance of signing the lease.
  • Marq rates: The rate displayed is for entire leasing period, corresponding to the lease length of your choice.  As all Marq leases are on an individual basis, this cost is what the individual student lessee will pay over the course of their tenancy under this lease.

4. Review the final contract and sign.  Your personal information and leasing date choices will be inserted into your lease.

  • Check the box to agree to the assertion for the lease.
  • Enter your 9-digit MUID number as University ID.
  • Enter your Confirmation Code.  This code is emailed to your Marquette email address by clicking on the "Send Code" link to the right of the entry boxes.  Please type in the code in the entry box, as copying and pasting may sometimes insert erroneous spaces or characters.
  • Click I Agree, then Next Step.

5. Save a PDF of your lease for your records.

6. Click Finish to complete your lease signing.
