Roomers: Fall 2022 Arrival Survival Guide
Welcome to Marquette!
The Residence Life staff and the entire Marquette University community are looking forward to your arrival on campus for the 2022-2023 academic year! This guide will be updated again in early August with additional information.
Residence hall move-in will occur between Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25 for incoming first-year and transfer students. Move-in will occur between Friday, August 26 and Sunday, August 28 for all returning students.
Early drop off is back!
Between Sunday, August 21 and Tuesday, August 23, students can take advantage of our early drop off policy (except Schroeder residents) in order to reduce the crowds of people on move-in day. Students may drop their belongings in their room on Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m and Monday and Tuesday between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Schroeder Hall does not offer early drop-off since summer orientation programs are housed here.
Here are some helpful hints for a smooth move-in day:
A twin bed, dresser, desk and desk chair, mirror, study lamp, curtains and mattress cover for each resident.
All beds are extra long twin (36”x80”).
Your hall also has a laundry facility. Laundry machines accept coins and/or Marquette CASH.Laundry costs $1.50 per load to wash and $1.50 to dry. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, this price changes to $1.25. Additionally, we ask that you do not use laundry pods in the washers, as these can clog the machines.
For your beds, we recommend that you bring extra long twin sheets, blankets, bed spread, pillow and pillow case.
Please do not bring these items:
Can you have guests in your room?
Residents may host up to three visitors at a time during the following hours:
24-hour-hour lobby spaces are available for students and their visitors in each residence hall.
The MicroFridge is a one-of-a-kind unit that includes a full refrigerator, freezer and microwave all-in-one! This is a convenient alternative to bringing a refrigerator and microwave from home and is a must-have item for students attending Marquette from far away or out-of-state.
It is one less large item to pack, making move-in day MUCH easier and less stressful!

Given the limited vacancies in the residence halls after assignments are made, room and hall changes are very difficult. Beginning Friday, June 10 at 12pm Central Time, you may place yourself on a waiting list for a specific building or room type through the Campus Living Portal.
Marquette University is not responsible for theft, damage or loss of valuables, money or property belonging to students.
We strongly recommend that you insure your personal property while at Marquette, either through your parents’ home owners insurance policy or by purchasing separate property/renter’s insurance.
We also encourage you to inscribe your name on valuables before your arrival. Once you are on campus, you will have access to an engraver through the Department of Campus Safety.
Full-time undergraduates pay a per-term health fee that entitles them to benefits of Marquette University Medical Clinic. For additional information on health services, visit the Medical Clinic website.
What do you need in case of an emergency? The hospital in the area requires that students have a medical insurance card or a copy of it to present upon admittance. Remember to get one from your parents and bring it with you in the fall.
How do you upload your vaccination status?
You can upload your vaccine dates and record of vaccination on the MU Patient Portal.
This is a two-step process:

Every student living in a Marquette university residence hall is provided a high speed internet connection to the campus network. In addition, all the residence halls have wireless connectivity. Students are not required to have their own computer as Marquette offers many computers for student use which are available in the residence halls and other locations across campus.
To view a list of labs, including available software and hours of operation, please visit the IT Services website.
Students are encouraged to bring a computer to campus and should contact the IT Services Help Desk at (414) 288-7799 with any questions regarding minimum recommendations. Note that some classes will be in person, some will be remote and others will be a combination.
We are asking students to ship any items (including textbooks) to their permanent address and bring those items with them to campus on move-in day. We have limited mailroom space and hours during the early weeks of the semester to accommodate a large influx of packages shipped directly to residence halls before opening.
For information on your Anytime Dining meal plan, visit us online or contact our office.
Campus dining rooms will be open with numerous changes in order to account for pandemic protocol. All locations have been required to reduce seating capacity so take out and grab-n-go options are now available across campus. Traffic patterns and queuing lanes will be marked with floor stickers, signage and stanchions to help guide students safely through each location. Self-service stations will not exist so those areas will now be staffed by dining room employees. All past services will be available, including the ability of the dining room staff to work with students who need special meals due to dietary restrictions.
