Overview of Deichert Hall
Completed in 1977 and known as "west apartments," this 12 unit student apartment residence was designated "Deichert Hall" in 2004. It is located on the north side of campus adjacent to the softball field. Each unit includes three bedrooms, which can accommodate up to six residents, complete with bath, kitchen, and common living and dining facilities. As "Deichert Hall," the residence brings grateful recognition to Peter and Mary Deichert of Flasher, N.D. and their children Peter Jr., Dorothy, Dennis, Robert, Linda, Mary and Donald for their generosity to the University of Mary and their enduring support of Catholic education.

Information Technology on U-Mary Campus
The University of Mary does not require students to purchase their own computers at this time. The university does provide access to computers through the residence hall computer labs as well as the Welder Library lab, Harold J Miller lab and Chesterton's computer and printer station. For some students it may be more convenient to have their own computer. 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. Laptop users can take advantage of the University of Mary’s 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network located in all resident halls and common areas. If you 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.
Requirements for Student-Owned Computers Connecting to the U-Mary Network
Due to problems created by personal routers and access points they are prohibited on campus. These devices have the potential to cause conflicts with the university’s wireless equipment and affect the quality of the students networking experience at the university.

Upon your arrival to campus, you will be issued a room 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 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.
Each hall has a Residence Director (RD) living in the building. The RDs are professionally
educated and trained to work in a residence hall to support college students. In addition
to offering problem-solving and guidance for students having any problems, they also
guide and supervise the Resident Assistants.
Resident Assistants are current students who are selected to be mentors and resources in the halls. They serve as "the first line of defense" in some ways. They will be the first to respond to concerns in the hall, serve as mentors to the residents, plan events and programs, and help students adjust to college life and classes.
