Marycrest Complex​,​ commonly known as “The Crest”​,​ is located atop a hill overlooking the vast central mall ,and is the largest residential complex on campus. Marycrest is equipped with one of the University's three​ main Dining Facilities with the famous Monster Cookie on its menu. Additionally, The Crest holds one half of the first year class, roughly 940 students, in a seven story high rise. Marycrest is co-ed by floor with wide hallways, large residential rooms,​ and communal lounges for study and social interactions. Rooms are mostly doubles but there are singles and triples available. Marycrest is located next to Serenity Pines, a tranquil and peaceful environment perfect for relaxation and reflection. ​The Crest is the place to be and we hope to welcome you when you make the decision to come to UD!
