Housing & Residence Life

MCC Housing

Welcome to MCC Residence Life & Housing

Marshalltown Community College welcomes all students to visit and ultimately choose to reside in our residence halls. Our modern facility is less than a three-minute walk from campus and consistently offers students opportunities to engage with each other and with staff members. We offer a safe and inviting on-campus living experience which includes three “live-on” staff members and six Resident Assistants (RA’s) to help assist with any needs that may arise. Three evenings a week our students have the opportunity to mingle with each other at Grocery Bingo, Tiger Trivia, or any of the activities that our RA’s host. Last year a total of 80 activities were hosted in our residence halls and on campus by our residence life staff. Activities including: root beer float parties, ping pong tournaments, tie blanket parties, tie-dye shirt parties, milk and cookie socials, movie nights, and dozens more! Choosing residence life opens the door for students to make new friends and experience all that campus life has to offer.

About Renewing your Housing Contract

If you currently live in residence, you will have the opportunity to renew your housing contract for the upcoming academic year during the summer. Information will be issued to all current residential students on the process should they want to remain in residence for the next academic year. Current residents who do not participate in the Housing Renewal Days will have to re-apply online with new residents.
