On the main level of the Mallett Hall is a large study lounge and game room. It also has a working piano, and yes, it actually gets played! The lower level of Mallett has a large laundry room and full kitchen. Residents of Mallett Hall have the ability to choose an optional gender-inclusive room placement where their roommate preference is not based on gender.
Because restrooms are community-style, during the first floor meeting an anonymous vote occurs where students can voice their thoughts on restroom designations. If a resident would like restrooms to be gender-specific, then restrooms are designated as such for the floor.
Residing in this building is a professional staff member (called a Graduate Area Coordinator) who assists in the development of communal living. This staff person is responsible for enhancing residents’ college experience by assisting in promoting programs within the hall.
Programs designed by the four Community Assistants in the hall promote the development of both academic and social skills. A Community Assistant is an upper class UMF student who assists in building community within their areas, as well as help residents get involved in the campus community through various programming initiatives.
The floors in Mallett are distinct by number, floor from ground level up. The beds are not bunked; however, if upon moving in all roommates want the beds bunked, University staff will assist. Please note that the All-Access Meal Plan is required for all First-Year Students.
1st Floor – Service Impact Living Learning Community
Do you have a passion for helping others through community service? The mission of Service Impact Living Learning Community is to prepare UMF students to make positive differences in their communities through service and community action. A dynamic team of peer leaders, staff, alumni, and community action partners will facilitate service programs and field trips for students. In addition, Service Impact Community students will plan, develop, design, and implement their own service project in the greater Farmington community. Undergraduate students in any major who are interested in further developing their leadership skills are welcome in this Living Learning Community. Students of this community will sign an additional community agreement indicating active participation in the community.
Living Learning Communities at UMF give students a unique, inclusive, residential experience, with the added benefit of living among peers who share similar goals and interests. As an active member of a Living Learning Community, you’ll get an opportunity to build partnerships with other students and staff while engaging in purposeful, interactive programs and events. You’ll develop a sense of belonging while you share and deepen your passion.
