MVNU is a residential campus made up of four residence halls, 102 townhome apartments, and countless adventures.

The MVNU Residence Life staff is responsible for facilitating the needs of residential students, and is made up of both professional and student staff members who live on campus with MVNU students. Resident Directors supervise several aspects of residential living for MVNU living areas, which includes: room assignment and changes, communication with facilities services and campus safety, planning activities for residents, supervising move-in and move-out times, mediation, and discipline. Resident Assistants are student leaders who assist the Resident Director by planning activities, encouraging individual students and providing spiritual direction for residents.

Incoming freshmen live in one of our three residence halls:
  • Oakwood Hall (Males)
  • Pioneer Hall (Females)
  • Galloway Hall (Freshman and Sophomore Females)
Every residence hall has four central bathrooms, two free laundry rooms, vending machines, microwaves, and a common lobby.
Each residential room has:
  • 2 desks with chairs
  • 2 closets
  • 2 loftable beds
  • 2 dressers
  • 1 sink
Upperclasmen live in one of our seven apartment complexes:
  • Elmwood
  • Maplewood
  • Rosewood
  • Spruce
  • Birch
  • Cedar
  • Cypress
Each complex includes two or three townhome buildings and a courtyard. Students of the opposite sex will live in the same complex and share a courtyard, but will not live in the same building. There are several common lobbies, computer labs, vending machines, full kitchens, and free laundry rooms throughout campus that are available to MVNU residential students.

Each apartment has:
  • A townhome-style front door leading out to courtyard
  • Common living room
  • Kitchenette
  • 1 first-floor bedroom
  • 2 second-floor bedrooms (2 beds, desks, and closets per bedroom)
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 1 linen closet
