Residential Programs & Services (RPS)
You may know them as dorms, but at MCLA, we like to call them residence areas and they are managed by Residential Programs & Services, better known on campus, RPS.
Living on campus sets the stage for student learning. The MCLA student housing program provides a living environment conducive to academic pursuits, personal growth and the development of friendships. As we believe the living experience is integral to the educational process, MCLA students (except local commuters) are required to live on campus and participate in a College meal plan.
Our Campus Housing Community
Our three residence areas house more than 1,000 full-time, traditional-aged students. Each residence area is supervised by a Residence Director and a team of Resident Advisors.
On-Campus Residency Requirement Information
First-year students entering the College live on campus and participate in a College meal plan for three years. If you transfer in with prior college experience, you will receive a one, two or three-year residency requirement commensurate with the number of credits completed. The Office of Admission assigns the appropriate residency requirement at the time of admission.
