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.
Enjoy our brand-new, beautiful residential community called "The Heights." The Heights is a state-of-the-art, 567,271-square-foot residential and dining complex open to all resident students regardless of grade level. The Heights goes beyond the traditional "dorm" experience, adding amenities that are more like those at a hotel than those at a normal college residence hall, including closets, a vanity outside private bathrooms and suite-style living even for first-year students. It's not just a room, it's home sweet home.
Another great advantage of living on campus is the shuttle bus service available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is extremely convenient for students, especially when trying to squeeze in that extra couple of minutes sleep in the morning! Ask any student who has experienced the relief of getting onto a warm, welcoming shuttle on a cold February morning, and they'll tell you that there's no better feeling!
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 our most popular dining hall, “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, SubConnection, and Guy Fieri On Campus, with an open seating arrangement.
