The University of Mary Residence Life program is a co-curricular educational program that is an integral part of the university’s educational and religious mission. The purpose of the program is to facilitate development of character and leadership skills of individual student residents while teaching the students about the balance of personal freedom with responsibility to community. This is accomplished by encouraging student residents placed in the program to take part in forming a residential community of students where personal behavior is consistent with Christian/Catholic moral principles, virtues and the Benedictine values is encouraged through activities and policies.
