Since Plymouth State University is a residential campus, it is active with students from various areas around the globe and from all walks of life! Our campus size allows for more interpersonal connections, increased participation in campus life and easier and greater access to support systems whether academic, social or personal. Our close proximity to the Plymouth Main Street also promotes a close connection between the University and the greater community. The live-on policy is reviewed and adjusted annually in order to meet the needs of the campus and community at large. For more information, please see the live-on requirement policy here or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Most newly admitted students will reside in double or triple rooms in one of our traditional residence halls: Belknap, Blair, Grafton, Mary Lyon, and Pemigewasset. If you are an incoming student who is 19+ years of age or sophomore status or above, you are eligible to request housing in the University Apartments and all room types in Langdon Woods. Merrill Place is our newest residence hall and is available on a first come first served basis to returning students and offers single and double rooms with a private bathroom and single rooms with a shared bathroom!
