Your Home at Marshall

Residential Halls

Overview

Nothing beats Living On Campus — you’re next door to everything & everyone.

Roll out of bed. Walk to class. Lunch with friends. Quick nap. Afternoon lecture. Sunset surfing at the beach. Study session with suitemates. Gym for a workout. Movie night in the lounge.

This is everyday life when you make Marshall College residence halls and apartments your home.

Most students choose to live in the residence halls their first year; many return for subsequent years. Research shows that students who live on campus get more out of their college experience. Residents enjoy resources designed to make their transition into college smooth. They also meet people from all walks of life.

Our Houses are split into three different sections: Residential Halls, Lower Apartments & Uppers Apartments. Each house is also assigned a different theme.

  • A: Activism
  • B: B yourself
  • C/D: Collective Dialogue
  • E: Empower
  • F: Freedom
  • G: Grassroots
