Scott-West is part of the Scott Hall Complex, which also includes Scott-North and Scott-South. The Scott Hall complex, located on Main Street across from the UMF Admissions Office, is UMF’s largest residence hall, an expansive 3-story building. The upper floor of Scott-West has large panoramic windows, some overlooking Prescott Field and nearby Titcomb Mountain ski area. The lower level of Scott-West has a large laundry room and full kitchen.

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 the Scott Complex are distinct by number, floor from ground level up, and by direction, defined as North, South and West. The beds are not bunked; however, if upon moving in all roommates want the beds bunked, University staff will assist is setting this up. Please note that the All-Access Meal Plan is required for all First-Year Students.
