Some call living on campus "the total college experience." We agree.

When you live on campus, you participate in activities, develop new friendships, and learn more about yourself and others. Living on campus complements your classroom experiences and will better prepare you for life after Marywood.

Sleep-Out for the Homeless

March 28-29, 2014

On any given day 16,200 Pennsylvanians are experiencing homelessness. The Office of Housing and Residence Life at Marywood University will be hosting an event to shed light on this growing issue. On March 28th-29th, there will be a Sleep-Out for the Homeless. This event is open to Marywood students, faculty and staff to raise awareness about homelessness in our area. The program will begin at 9 P.M in the Fireplace Lounge of Nazareth Student Center with a speaker who will talk about their experiences being homeless. Participants will also watch a movie, The Human Experience.  Participants will then spend the night sleeping outside in order to gain first-hand experience with the realities and challenges associated with homelessness.  This single night cannot replicate the pain and helplessness that homelessness brings; however, our hope is for students to become aware of this problem and become proactive in making a difference for homelessness in our area.
