Marycrest Complex

Marycrest Complex, affectionately known as “The Crest”, overlooks University of Dayton’s Central Mall. Our largest residential facility, Marycrest is home to roughly 940 students and is co-ed by floor. Featuring wide hallways, large residential rooms, and communal lounges, Marycrest rooms are mostly doubles with some singles and triples available. The Marycrest area also plays host to one of our 3 main dining locations and the tranquil Serenity Pines Garden just outside.
