Mount Union offers a variety of residential options to students. The University has 10 residence halls, each with their own unique appeal and amenities. There are 7 traditional style residence halls and three residence halls are which are built in a suite-style, with 2 adjoining rooms sharing a connecting bathroom. These halls range from historic Miller and Elliott halls, built in 1866 and 1913 respectively, to Shields, Bica-Ross and Hoiles-Peterson halls, all built within the last fifteen years. Shields is the newest residence hall, completed in 1999. In addition, upper-class students have the opportunity to live in theme housing. These houses are owned by the University and are located close to campus. Theme housing provides students with a chance to explore common interests and develop programs and activities that will benefit the entire campus community. In August 2007, we expanded our residential options to include apartment housing for junior and seniors.
