Roomers: June 2018 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 2018-19 academic year!
Residence Halls open for incoming students only on Thursday, August 23 at 8:00 a.m. In order assist with the move-in process, we have set up an arrival schedule for the specific floors in each building over a two day period - all incoming students (freshmen and transfers) will be given arrival times on Thursday.
Between Sunday, August 19 and Wednesday, August 22, students are able to take advantage of our early drop off policy in order to reduce the crowds of people on move-in day. Students may drop their belongings in their residence hall room* between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m on Sunday/Wednesday and 1 p.m and 4 p.m. on Monday/Tuesday.
Please note: this convenience is offered so that you can drop off your belongings - you will not be able to unpack or arrange your room at this time.
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”). We have provided information on our linens program if you need to purchase sheets to fit our beds.
Your hall also has a laundry facility. Laundry machines accept coins and/or Marquette CASH.
For your beds, we recommend that you bring extra long twin sheets, blankets, bed spread, pillow and pillow case.
The National Residence Hall Honorary student group sponsors a Linens Program fundraiser designed for these beds - click here for information on this program.
Please do not bring these items:
Students assigned to Abbottsford Hall, Carpenter Tower, Cobeen Hall, Mashuda Hall, Humphrey Hall, Schroeder Hall, Straz Tower or The Commons already have lofted furniture which can be arranged in a variety of ways - you do not need to rent a loft for these buildings.
Students are allowed to rent lofts to modify rooms that contain traditional bunked beds in O’Donnell Hall.
Bed lofts are an easy, affordable way to create additional living area in the room.
For information on bed loft rentals, click here.
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.
Order your products by AUGUST to guarantee FREE delivery to your room before move-in day! It is one less large item to pack, making move-in day MUCH easier and less stressful!

Bed Bath & Beyond is partnering with Marquette University to sponsor a Pop-Up Shop during move-in, conveniently located on campus. www.bedbathandbeyond.com/marquette
Marquette residence halls are completely full at this time so room and hall changes are very difficult, as we simply do not have space to make moves.
If you wish to be placed on a waiting list for a specific building, submit your request here.
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.
Although students are permitted to have cars on campus, parking space is at a premium. On-campus, overnight parking is limited and off-campus parking is very expensive. Please check with Marquette Parking Services at (414) 288-6911 for further information.
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.
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.
Students have the option to purchase Microsoft Office and other software at deeply discounted prices via the Marquette web site.
