What’s Great About Living at Salem State

March 1st is an important date. Want to know why? Besides being the start of a new month-Spring Break month-the 1st is when resident students’ housing deposits are due! What’s a housing deposit, you ask?

If you wish to live on campus next semester, Fall 2017, you must pay a housing deposit to ensure that Salem State Residence Life saves a room for you. The housing deposit is $300 and you can pay it on Navigator.

There are many benefits to living on campus, such as:

1.) Proximity

Living in a residence hall allows you to be in close proximity to everything on campus. You are within walking distance to your classes, the dining halls, the gym and your friends’ rooms.


2.) It’s a great place to meet new people

Residence Halls house more than 300 students! Whether it is playing pool on the ground floor or doing homework in a lounge, you have a chance to meet all types of people.


3.) You can live with your friends

Do you hate living in a different residence hall than your friends? Perhaps they live in Marsh on Central Campus and you are constantly walking between Marsh and your dorm on North Campus. Well, as upperclassmen, you have the opportunity to live in the same residence hall or at least all on Central Campus (Marsh Hall and Viking Hall). You also have the chance to have your friends as roommates.
