How Do I Apply?
Once you have been accepted to Marymount College and made your Commitment Deposit, an application will be automatically sent to you. You may also request an application from the Office of Residential Life by contacting Heidi Knight, Housing and Operations Coordinator at HKnight@marymountpv.edu
All apartments are fully furnished. Each bedroom contains desks, chairs, dressers and extra-long twin beds. In each living room there is a coffee table and two couches. Each kitchen has a table and four chairs and also comes with a stove and refrigerator. A microwave is not provided, nor cooking and eating utensils. The floors in the kitchen and bathroom are tile or vinyl. All living rooms and bedrooms are carpeted.
The residence hall provides laundry facilities with a change machine and detergents which may be purchased from our vending machines when needed. A quiet/group study room and a student lounge are also available.
Deposits and Fees
Our Residential Life Fees include your apartment, utilities and a full meal plan. All residential students are required to sign up for the meal plan. For a comprehensive list of our Residential Life fees along with all other fees associated with Marymount College, please click here to visit our Tuition Information page.
Roommates are determined by the Residential Life Placement Survey that is attached to the Residential Life application. You will be matched with roommates by a Housing Coordinator, according to the answers you give. If you have friends that you would like to live with, please be sure to list them on your application and to have them list you.
Our residence halls close during these breaks. We ask that you plan your schedule early.
There are ample garage spaces and street parking to accommodate residential students at PV North. Guests, however, are required to park outside of the complex on Palos Verdes Drive North.
Marymount College is not responsible for the safekeeping of personal property. The College strongly advises students to secure insurance for their personal property. An insurance application is available in the Office of Residential Life. Also, you may be covered by your parents’ homeowner’s insurance. Ask your family.
