A land line is provided in each room. Students are responsible for purchasing their own telephone. Basic service includes on-campus and local calls only. Each student will be issued a phone number which will change each year as the student moves rooms. Students planning to use their cell phone should register the number with the Student Development office.
Prepaid telephone calling cards may be used to make long-distance calls from the residence hall phone. Prepaid calling cards can be purchased at many off-campus locations.
If you do decide to bring your own computer, the University of Mary does provide a network connection for every student in the residence halls and computer labs in each hall and in other campus locations. Laptop users can take advantage of the University of Mary's 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network located in all residence halls and common areas. If you will have a desktop computer without wireless network capabilities in your room and wish to connect it to the Internet, you will need to purchase approximately ten (10) feet of CAT5 or CAT6 network cable.

Mail and packages should be sent directly to your assigned campus box. You'll receive your campus box number when you receive your room assignment. Your address will take the form shown below:

Bismarck, ND 58504
### = assigned box number
Upon your arrival to campus, you will be issued a room key and a building key. Though our campus is very safe, the university recommends that each student lock his or her room door when you are not present in the room. If you get locked out of your room, you can contact your Resident Assistant or the Residence Director on duty to gain access to your room
Losing your room key is a serious concern. You are jeopardizing the safety of your roommate, your belongings, and other building residents. We encourage all students to exercise ultimate caution with keys. If you do lose your room and/or building key, it is extremely important that you report it immediately to Student Development so we can request a new key for you. There will be a charge for the keys, as we will need to re-core your door for security reasons.
