4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms have no air conditioning and are older, but there is a large part of community involved. As you get older, you get better dorms and even townhouses and apartments. The townhouses and apartments are new so they're very nice and have all amenities needed!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is pretty nice but getting into where you want to be is problematic for a lot of people.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms and campus apartments are very well taken care of. They are very clean. Mount Union expects the students to take care of the campus and the residential buildings and if they do not they are fined for things broken or damaged. The students are held accountable, which makes it ours.

Nearly 70 percent of Mount Union's student body resides on campus, so campus housing is a huge priority for the University. Most underclassmen live in traditional residence halls with double or triple rooms and communal bathrooms, while upperclassmen tend to live in suite-style halls (two doubles sharing a bathroom), theme houses, or campus-owned apartments and townhouses. The best residence halls are Cunningham and McCready for freshmen and Bica-Ross and Shields for upperclassmen; the worst for anyone are Ketcham and King. However, all of the residence halls are relatively new or recently renovated, and even the worst ones aren't that terrible. Campus housing gets high marks on cleanliness and proximity to classes, and most students are satisfied with their living communities. 

The worst thing about campus housing isn't living in it—it's getting into it in the first place. The housing lottery can be a pain to go through, especially if you draw a high number or are trying to get into one of the coveted townhouses or apartments. And with several large freshman classes in the last few years, the housing situation is starting to get a little cramped. The University is dealing with the housing crunch by remodeling the halls, building more townhouses and apartments, and in some cases, offering upperclassmen incentives to move off campus.

Upperclassmen at Mount Union have the option of living in a campus-owned theme house for the same cost as living in a traditional residence hall. Themes change from year to year, and students can propose new themes each spring. Additionally, fraternity brothers and sisters of some sororities may choose to live in their Greek houses.
