Plan for Housing

On-Campus Housing

For J-1 students: unless you choose to live off-campus, you will live in the Global Living Community in the Village at Little Falls. International Student Advisor Angela Cant will communicate with you via email before your arrival regarding your housing assignment.

For F-1 students: making arrangements for housing well in advance of your arrival is extremely important. Residence hall rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. On-campus housing is not a guarantee except for incoming freshmen students who apply by the housing deadline, so it is important for you to let us know in advance that you require on-campus housing. Complete the “On-Campus Housing Request Form”.  You will be assigned housing either in the Global Living Community (GLC), the graduate student floor of Alice Paul Hall (if you are a graduate student), or Russ Hall (for freshmen and sophomore students). If all three options are full, we will forward your housing request to the Office of Residential Education and Services to see if a room is available in another on-campus location. Please note: once you arrive to campus and move into your residence hall, you are committed to pay for the housing assignment for the entire semester. The Office of Residential Education does not offer refunds to students once they have moved into their rooms.

Global Living Community (GLC): International Services manages housing assignments in the Global Living Community (GLC). The GLC is a residential community of International and American students at Montclair State University. It is housed in the Village at Little Falls.  Living in the GLC offers students and international scholars a unique opportunity to make friends from around the world who share an interest in broadening their cultural perspectives. Spaces in the GLC are given to J-1 exchange students, graduate students, undergraduate juniors and seniors, and returning students. If you have any questions about the GLC contact Angela Cant at
