THE GREEN FACTS ABOUT MUM:
The MUM campus, which has about 1,000 students, is on the north side of town, walking distance to the town square and shops.
Located amid the rolling fields of agriculture in Southeast Iowa, Fairfield is a bubble of creativity, meditation, diverse cultures, and community — a nationally recognized center for innovative education, entrepreneurship, the arts, and sustainability.
Home to Maharishi University of Management, students come to Fairfield expecting a typical Midwest town, but instead find an innovative place filled with an interesting mix of local Iowans and world-wide transplants.
We respect the need for our students to enjoy quiet and privacy in their residence halls. For this reason, single rooms are standard for all students. Most students are housed in residence halls with central baths, but the newer residence halls (described below) have private baths.
HOUSING IN HARMONY WITH NATURAL LAW
Seven “home-style” residence halls opened in 2005. Each building houses eight students — each with their own bedroom and private bath. The central area features a living room and kitchen. The newer residence halls were built according to the life-supporting principles of Vedic architecture, and are environment-friendly. Geothermal technology is used to conserve energy, and natural materials are used whenever possible. There is an additional housing charge for rooms in the newer residence halls.
NEW RESIDENCE HALLS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
The University is now seeking funding to build several new “green” residence halls. All new residence halls will be LEED-certified and built using the principles of ancient Vedic architecture.
