Residence Halls

Whether in a Traditional Room, Suite, or Apartment; We hope you will call it Home. 

Two residence hall projects will be taking place. One is to upgrade the rooms in Birkelo Hall to improve the livability and attractiveness of student rooms (scroll down the find more information). The second is to increase ventilation in Agassiz Hall. Check back for updates on the progress of these projects.

Check out the progress on each project so far.

Keep in mind that these projects impact our ability to have students in their permanent living spaces earlier than the beginning of school. If you are coming for summer sports camps, you might have a temporary assignment in August that is different than your school year assignment. Residence halls open for most students on August 19, 2017, at 1:00 pm. 

Mayville offers a variety of housing options to fit any need or budget. View the videos below to see the residental halls and on campus living or schedule a visit today to see for yourself.

Mayville State is excited to announce the Birkelo Undergraduate Intentional Leadership Development (BUILD) House program. Students can submit an application for the BUILD House and for the housing waiver attached to it. (If you have not completed the 2017- 2018 Housing Application, you need to do that first).

Students choosing to live in Birkelo Hall will create a community of members of
the top ¼ of Mayville State students, based on ACT and/or H.S. GPA.

Students will share:
• a commitment to excellence in the classroom.
• a commitment to on-campus activities, in the form of attending and planning/
  working at events.
• a residential space intended to foster scholarship, active discussion, and
  friendships.

Students benefit by:
• having a chance to be in closer proximity to other highly-qualified students,
• access to increase faculty interaction
• access to opportunities that are constantly being identified – lab assistants,
  teaching assistants, and study abroad opportunities that are being developed.
• access to scholarship dollars specifically available for students in the BUILD
  House.

Who should apply
Students in the entering class of 2021 have a chance to create something new. We are looking for students who:
• want to commit to being in a more scholarly building and commit to being a part of campus activities.
• have a 22 ACT (Composite), with a 3.25 HS GPA, or a similar GPA in transfer to Mayville State.
  (Students  with either a 22 or 3.25 are eligible for the House; students with both a 22 and 3.25 have
  preference for admission to the House).

Space is limited
Intended class size is approximately 48 new students. This cozy number helps ensure we are able to target our resources to participating students.

Scholarships
In the inaugural year, competitive scholarships are available. A current double room in Birkelo (you sharing a room) will bill at $1201/fall semester. Apply for the program, write a great essay, and you may be awarded a scholarship for the full amount of the fall semester charge (other costs such as book, tuition and fees, meal plan, or living in a different building are not covered by this scholarship).

Application Process
Write a 100-word statement about an experience you’ve had where you used, or wish you had used, leadership. After your essay is written, return to the housing portal, use the “Links” button on the homepage, and submit your essay. Your answers should be submitted through the Housing
Application site before May 15, 2017.
