Residence Life


Living Learning Communities


Austin Scholars Community

As an Austin Scholar, you will have the opportunity to live and learn with your peers. As a group you will be taking Christianity in Context, a course required for all freshmen which fulfills your institutional requirement, together as a community. Studying and group work will never be this easy! In addition, you will participate in fun programming opporunities as well as a weekend service trip off campus.

Wellness Housing

As a resident of the Health and Wellness floor, you will have the opportunity to live and learn with like-minded individuals. You will have the ability to participate in an active lifestyle along with ways to improve on balancing academics and your social life. Students who are interested in living a healthy lifestyle and participating in events that are designed around your mind, body, and spirit are encouraged to apply.

Global Community

Students who are interested in living in the global community will live with students from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. Students who are interested in learning more about other cultures through engaging conversations are encouraged to apply to be part of this community. This will be a great opportunity to meet other students who share an interest in studying abroad, discussing world events, and learning about different cultures.

Honors Housing

Students in the Honors program live together in community. By living with other students in the Honors program, you are able to extend the learning in community that takes place in the classroom. Learn more about the Honors program at Merrimack!

Note to Honors Program students: when you complete your housing form, you will be asked to indicate that you are an Honors student.  There is no separate Honors Housing application.



Completed housing forms are due on June 30; if you are applying to be part of the Austin Scholars or Wellness Living Learning Communities, you need to complete your form by June 15.
