Residence Life

At Montclair State, college life is more than a classroom experience. Our vibrant residence halls, ranging from traditional double and triple rooms to apartment-style living for upperclassman, allow you to experience the cultural, recreational and social programs -- including easy access to New York City -- that will help you grow as a person and make your mark on Red Hawk Country.

You will have the option to join a Special Interest Living Community (SILC). They’re designed to provide an all-encompassing university experience by grouping you with other students who share your special interest.

To learn more about our on-campus living options visit the Residence Life webpage.

Live on campus- it's all here!

Living on campus opens up an entire world of learning and growth outside the classroom. Being a student at Montclair State University means you get free admission to hundreds of performances of world-renowned musicians, dancers, actors and performance artists right here on campus at the Kasser Theater every year.  Just show your ID and get your tickets free of charge.

‌A significant perk with living on campus is the unfettered access to the wide variety of delicious dining options available to students, and as with other aspects of your college education and experience, we don’t limit your options. At a new addition to our most popular dining hall, “Pulse on Dining at Sam’s Place” you can choose from a wide variety of foods: sandwiches, soups, salads, pasta, burgers and fries, ethnic foods and many other specialties. Try a little bit of everything - the buffet is “all you care to enjoy.” If you’d like something a little more specialized, try the “Food on Demand” service at Freeman Hall. If you're looking for a little flair, the recently-renovated Blanton Hall features a food court on the first floor which is home to Dunkin' Donuts, Which Wich Sandwich Shop, and Chili's, with an open seating arrangement.
