Residence Halls

Located around the perimeter of campus, Monmouth's residence halls offer students the opportunity to live in a diverse community that is stimulating, educational, and homey. Students are provided a wide range of living opportunities.

Each hall has a personality of its own, either in its unique architecture or its internal arrangements. Styles range from Winbigler and McMichael Hall's long corridors to modern suite style living for upperclassmen in recently built residence halls.

More information about each individual hall can be found below:
