University Apartment Utilities

When living in one of the University Apartments, the only utility you may have to consider is electricity.  Following is how this may affect you in an on-campus apartment:

Electricity Service

McCabe

 

Electricity paid by landlord (Marquette).

Campus Town East

Campus Town West

Gilman

Frenn

 

Electricity paid by tenant.

  • Tenants are responsible for starting and stopping their electric payments through WE Energies.  Any changes to an account - including switching the account from one roommate to another - can be completed online through the WE Energies website.  Only one roommate per apartment must complete the enrollment with WE Energies.  Tenants will receive a monthly bill from WE Energies, who also provides payment plans and energy saving resources.

The Marq

 

Electricity paid by tenant.

  • Tenants must enroll with The Marq's online payment portal.  While rental charges for The Marq are billed through Marquette Central, additional charges (such as electricity and parking (if applicable)) are assessed through the resident portal by The Marq's facilities staff (COCM) on a monthly basis.

 

Heating / Air Conditioning in the University Apartments

These amenities / utilities vary between the on-campus buildings.  While all apartments have heat, not all apartments have air conditioning:

  • Air Conditioning - Campus Town, The Marq, Frenn
  • No A/C - Gilman, McCabe

Furthermore, the manner in which these services are provided may be reflected in your utilities:

The Marq

 

Heating and air conditioning are generated centrally.  However, every apartment unit has its own thermostat to control the temperature.  While residents do not pay to generate the heat or air conditioning per se, they do pay to run the air handler to get the heating and air conditioning to the apartment.  If residents choose to keep the apartment very warm in the winter and very cool in the summer, they will see it reflected on their energy bill.

Heat is generated by steam radiators (gas-powered; paid by landlord).  No A/C.
