5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Our residence halls are clean, and maintained. We have fabulous residence hall choices for residents. We have suites, townhouses, apartments, regular rooms, singles, and more. We have a variety of types of residence halls, one sex, or co-ed. We have all sorts of cost options, all housing options are convenient, and the housing process is easy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a large additive in the price component, but I feel it is essential for the college experience. Living in the dorm has been a great experience for the most part. I had a girl on my floor pass away in her room, which was a very difficult experience, but it made my floor such better friends. Living on campus is also so convenient in the way that when you wake up you never have to drive anywhere you just walk a few hundred feet to class.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Just about everyone lives on campus. Food is great--- if you are willing to try things outside of burgers and grilled cheese.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms aren't great in quality. The "no drinking" isn't enforced very well. Some dorms are cleaner then others including the carpet and furniture.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall it was pretty nice living in the dorm. I just wish they had done a better job of enforcing quiet and courtesy hours, especially during finals week. I also wish the screens actually did their job of keeping out bugs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
