Details About Housing

First of all, think green! The environment is important to St. Mike’s so do your best to bring reusable items and talk to your roommate ahead of time so you don’t have more than one fridge, microwave or TV in your room. You can’t paint the walls or make permanent changes to your room but otherwise, your creativity is the limit to how you personalize your space.

Check out the SMC Campus Store website to reserve a gently-used dorm fridge and/or microwave at a major discount. Visit the Center for the Environment’s Instagram page for more move-in tips!

Access to Residence Halls

Halls are locked 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Please remember to keep your keys with you at all times. All residence halls on campus can be accessed with your Knight Card. Additionally, students living in Aubin and Cronogue Halls can access their suites and apartments with their Knight Card and will receive a key to your bedroom. In all other residential areas, you will be issued a key for your townhouse or suite along with your individual room.

What if I have a special housing request?
