The Office of Residence Life plays a vital role in supporting the academic mission of McKendree University by creating an atmosphere that encourages personal, social, and academic development. We will promote a clean, safe, well-maintained living environment that allows students the opportunity to study and learn about living in a community. We will foster self-responsibility, trust and respect for others and provide an atmosphere which is comfortable and accepting. The Residence Life program is designed to promote the holistic development of students through both planned and spontaneous activities.
Requirements to Live in Housing
1.) Complete a housing application
2.) $200 damage deposit made payable to the business office
3.) Register for classes
4.) Immunization Records:
A state public health law requires that the immunization portion of the physical be completed
and signed by a physician and that all updates of necessary immunizations be noted. The
law does not apply to students born before 1957. Students will not be permitted to attend
classes or move into the residence halls until this requirement is met.
Students may obtain their immunization records from their physician, high school,
university/college previously attended. If immunization records are not available then
students must receive the titer blood test which shows proof of immunity to MMR and show
proof of the DT booster received within the last 10 years.
New Student housing applications are now available.
Returning Student housing applications will be made available January 1, 2014.
Special Note: Please do not submit multiple housing applications. If you need to make a change to the application you submitted, please email Mitch Nasser at email@example.com.
