There are two buildings with approximately 150 residents on campus. There are two live-in professional housing staff members, plus six resident assistants and other student workers. In addition, we have a campus security staff. All these staff members are here to help!
Our Health & Safety team will follow the CDC guidelines. At this time, masks and vaccines are not required to live in the residence halls.
We encourage residents to clean and take out their trash on a weekly basis. There will be monthly Health & Safety checks where housing staff will enter rooms looking to ensure that the residents are taking care of themselves and their space.
Room assignments are assigned on a first come first serve basis. If a resident has a conflict with their roommate(s) and needs assistance, they are expected to meet with a resident assistant. Our staff is here to help with these situations. Space is limited and there is no guarantee that a room switch is possible.
What is in the Suite and what do I need to Bring?
- Each room has two beds, two desks, two dressers, and two closets. Each suite has a fridge and microwave (North is a full-size fridge; South is a mini-fridge).
- You will want to bring: Your clothes, bedding (Twin XL Sheets), kitchen utensils, personal toiletries, and cleaning supplies.
- Please Note: The only animals allowed are fish in a tank 10 gallons or less. We do not allow emotional support animals at this time. If you have a service animal, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
What am I to expect from my housing assignment?
In your housing assignment, you will find out which building you are in, along with roommates, suitemates, and a list of important dates. In your housing assignment email, you will also find a list of instructions of what to expect when you arrive on campus.
How do I access the building? What about my room?
Each building is secured by security doors that can only be opened with the use of an access card; these cards are distributed to each residential student for their appropriate building. To access your room, you will either have an electronic lock that is programmed to your specific card, or a hard key.
What do I do if there is an issue with the room?
If there is an issue with the room, we ask students to notify a member of the housing staff, this way we can resolve the issue with our maintenance and facilities team as soon as possible.
What is the laundry setup?
Both buildings have laundry facilities. In our North Hall, each suite has its own washer and dryer set up. In our South Hall, each floor has access to three communal washers and three communal dryers.
What if I am struggling to adapt to life away from home?
We understand that adapting to college life can sometimes be difficult, especially for those living away from home for the first time. Cleary University provides a friendly and engaging atmosphere sure to set any mind at rest. Cleary University also provides an on-campus counseling service free of charge. Our Licensed Professional Counselor is able to provide confidential mental health services to all students of Cleary University.
What is the local area like?
Cleary University is located in Howell, Michigan. The city of Howell was the recipient of the 2018 Great American Main Street award. There are all the major superstores you would expect to find in a small Michigan town, such as Walmart, Meijer, Kroger, but there are also many independent shops, fine eateries, and secluded sights to see. Howell is also home to multiple golf courses, lakes to explore, and much more.
