The Mothers Living & Learning (MLL) program is housed in Madonna Hall, a new building which opened Fall 2012. MLL is an innovative residential option for undergraduate, single mothers and their children who would like to pursue a full-time college degree while living on campus. This program is for women who have up to two children at least six weeks of age to under the age of 10 during their residency.
Both modern and eco-friendly, Madonna Hall features suites with four bedrooms, a common area with kitchenette and a full bathroom. Each floor also has a large community area with community kitchens and free laundry.
Each student is given a key to their room and an access card for the building elevator. There is also 24-hour security available on campus. Madonna Hall is only closed to residents once a year, closing over Christmas Break, on the dates CSM is closed.
Along with all CSM students, MLL residents can take part in the numerous services and opportunities on CSM’s campus. This includes learning support, tutoring and career services through our Achievement Center; leadership opportunities through our Student Leadership and Organizations Office; and counseling services. Students and their children are encouraged to utilize the Lied Fitness Center as long as children are supervised.
Another important resource for MLL residents is the Director of Single Parent Success who assists all single parents at CSM. In order to support MLL residents, the Assistant Director of Residence Life and Director of Single Parent Success work collaboratively to be a resource to all MLL residents. MLL residents will attend monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events, review policies and develop a community with fellow residents. MLL residents may also become active in the Residence Hall Council and MOMS groups.
MLL students are responsible for finding and financing daycare for their children. Spellman Child Development Center is located on campus and offers convenience and quality in Early Childhood Education. For information about enrolling your child at Spellman, or for assistance locating a childcare provider, contact the Director for Single Parent Success.
