Once you have been accepted at Anna Maria and have submitted a deposit, you will fill out a housing application. You will be assigned to a room with a roommate(s) based on the answers from the application and date of deposit. New students may request to live together, so long as these requests are mutually made. In these cases, rooms may be assigned based on the later deposit date. Residence Life will try to accommodate requests, but they are not guaranteed. Students requiring special accommodations must email the Office of Residence Life to discuss the accommodations as soon as they deposit.
Coghlin Hall, South Hall and St. Anne Hall have rooms where students are able to regulate heating and cooling. Bringing a fan that can go in the window is always a good idea for Alumni and Madonna Halls.
The Residence Halls do not remain open during breaks. If a student needs to stay during a break, prior approval is needed. The student will pay a nightly fee that should be paid in full before the break. There are no meals served over breaks.
All students are allowed to have a car on campus. The car must have a valid Anna Maria College parking decal. Students can get these decals from Public Safety by presenting vehicle registration, insurance and a valid driver's license.
If I do not get along with my roommate, can I be assigned to another room or another roommate?
If a student does not like his or her living situation, we encourage that student to speak with his/her roommate. If the situation cannot be resolved, the Residence Life Staff will work with the student to find a better solution. Students are allowed to move to a different space with approval at any time.
Resident Assistants (RAs) are upper class students, who live in single rooms on each floor. They are responsible for building a community in the halls, answering questions, and being a resource for students. They also have On-Duty hours and make rounds in the building to help ensure the safety of all residents.
Alumni Hall is a healthy living building for men and women. Healthy living is a lifestyle choice. All students assigned to the healthy living building live free of alcohol, illegal drugs and tobacco products.
Guests are allowed to sleep over, but each guest must present a valid state or federal ID and be signed in. Each resident may sign in up to two guests a day, and if a guest is staying overnight, they must be signed in by someone of the same gender.
Someone is always available to let a student into his/her room. If a key is lost at any time, a spare key may be issued without charge until the original is found. If the original key is not found, there is a fee to have it replaced.
