Register for International Orientation

Complete New Student Housing or Commuter Application

All students are required to complete either the Housing or Commuter application through MyHousing. These will be available in early May.

Residency Requirement
At Mount Union, we believe that the residential experience can significantly contribute to a student's overall collegiate experience. There is a great deal of learning that takes place on any college or university campus that occurs outside of the classroom. As such, the University of Mount Union has a 2-year residency requirement. However, for the 2020-2021 academic year, if you live within 60 driving miles, you may choose to commute from your permanent home address. Additionally, after you've attended college for four semesters after high school, you may choose to live off campus locally.


Health Center Form

To promote a healthy living environment on campus and to protect our campus community from vaccine-preventable diseases, the University requires all students to have updated immunizations prior to their arrival on campus. Two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) and a Tetanus-Diptheria (or Tdap) within the last 10 years are mandatory. Your healthcare provider may suggest other immunizations that are highly recommended. Refer to the Centers for Disease Control website for more information about immunizations.

Also, in the event of an emergency, it is important for us to have emergency contact phone numbers on file, as well as other important information about students such as their health histories, medical conditions, allergies, and medications. It is also recommended that all students have a physical exam by their personal physician prior to the start of the school year. However, it is mandatory for anyone who plans to participate in athletics.

Complete your Health Center Form and mail it to the Student Health Center prior to your arrival on campus if possible. Please include only the Health Center forms in your envelope and address them to: Health Center, University of Mount Union, 1972 Clark Ave., Alliance, OH 44601.
