Residence Halls

Living on campus doesn’t mean being confined to a cold, impersonal “dorm.” You’ll be living in a place filled with plenty of interesting people, events and activities where life-long relationships are made. What makes each residence hall and/or apartment community unique? Its people! Each building thrives on the involvement of the students living there. No matter where you choose to reside, you’ll find wonderful traditions to enjoy. Also, by getting involved, you can play an active role in planning traditional events and creating future “classics.”

Located at both the north and south ends of campus, Montclair State University residential facilities offer a variety of buildings that allow students different living style options. The facilities include traditional double-loaded corridors and suite-style arrangements as well as apartment communities. Each residence facility has its own personality as determined not only by its physical structure, but also by the staff and the people who live there.

Each residence hall is self-contained with its own lounges, recreation areas, study rooms and a variety of services. In addition to this, each student’s room is equipped with the basic amenities-beds, dressers, closets, desks, chairs and draperies. Residents are strongly encouraged to bring personal items from home and decorate to give the space its own special character.

Several of the facilities also house Living Learning Communities for students who share common interests.
