Life in Marguerite Hall
Marguerite Hall is a 12-story building with
breathtaking views of the Buffalo water-front,
downtown and Canada. The residence hall is
co-ed, but the floors are divided by gender.
Each floor houses approximately 28
students and has a study lounge, TV lounge,
and kitchenette. You’ll also have access to
vending machines, coinless laundry facilities
and a 24-hour computer lab which is located
on the first floor of the building.
Each room is fully furnished with standard
twin beds, dressers, desks and desk chairs, and
wall-mounted lighting fixtures. In addition,
every room has a microfridge, single phone
line, and is wired for cable and computer
connection to a college-owned network system
to give you in-room Internet access.
You’ll be responsible for personalizing
your room with your own phone, linens
and personal items such as TV, DVD, stereo
system, carpet, mirror, decorations and
anything else you need to make your room
feel like home.
For your safety and security, Marguerite
Hall is staffed by a security guard 24-hours
a day. Residents are required to present college
ID to enter the building. All visitors must sign
in and be escorted to their destination.
A resident assistant lives on each floor and
is responsible for programming activities,
enforcing rules, distributing information and
maintaining a positive living environment.
Resident assistants are available to answer
questions, listen to student concerns and help
with your adjustment at D’Youville.

Living on campus fosters growth and
development outside of the classroom and
makes the transition from high school to college
smoother for you. You’ll meet and learn about
new people while forming friendships that will
last a lifetime. By living on campus, you’ll have
greater opportunity to become active in clubs,
student organizations and athletics because you’ll
be closer to the action. Also, you’ll likely find it
easier to form study groups and work on class
projects with fellow classmates who live near
you. Meals are available in D’Youville’s dining
facilities, so there’s no need to cook. With all that
our residences have to offer, it’s no wonder so
many students choose to live on campus year
