Residential Life

Welcome home!

Marymount California University believes that student housing should offer more than just a place to live. We want you to live in a safe and inclusive community where you share new ideas and experiences with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

That’s why the Residential Life staff focuses on both your living and learning experiences —providing a vibrant atmosphere where there’s always something happening. It’s a great place to discover new interests, ideas and talents —all while living in some of the best student housing anywhere.

Resort Living at the Villas at Marymount

It won’t take long for the Villas at Marymount to feel like home. That’s because instead of a typical university residence hall room, you get to live in a fully-furnished, two-story townhome, complete with a kitchen, living room, patio and even a garage.

With approximately 400 students living around a central quad, you’ll find that there’s always something to do. All villas have central air and heat and have been recently remodeled. The University has also added several amenities to enhance the living experience, including: a sand volleyball court, pool, expanded fitness center, additional community study and meeting spaces, and our new pizza oven and outdoor grill!
