Campus-Living-Body-Image.jpgThey say college is the most fun you'll ever have, and our programs and activities on campus are meant to contribute to that. There is great value in living on campus in residence halls and sharing in our close campus community is the foundation for living on your own. It is a great way to becoming an active part of the larger community. Whether you live on campus, or as an older student live off campus, being a part of student life or other student activities is a great way to find out who you are, to start setting a few of your own rules, and to really make a home for yourself.

College life brings: 

Lifelong Friendships

Student development events give you chances to meet other people and develop lasting friendships. They say even if you don't meet your spouse here, you're gonna meet your bridesmaids or groomsmen. 


Safety and security is a number-one priority for all our staff. We will help you develop an awareness for your own safety, and stand ready to help you when there is a problem. 

Special Events

There's always something going on including dances, game nights, and watch parties for "the big game." Expect spirited group discussions of current campus events and issues.

Your Success

Every person who works at Mayville State is interested in students succeeding. You need to do the work, but we will remind you that studying is important, that attending classes is important, that being a trusted friend is important, and managing yourself and your actions is important.

The small classes mean you develop better relationships with your peers. It doesn’t matter where you came from. When you’re at Mayville, you belong.
