At the beginning of the semester, all residents will fill out a roommate contract to set some ground rules for the apartment regarding noise, guests, and cleanliness. This usually establishes a common respect for all residents in the room. All residents are encouraged to try to work out their differences with their roommates through open communication and discussion; however, if two residents have irreconcilable differences and one wants to move, they should submit a Room Change Request form. The Office of Residence Life must approve all moves. No resident moves will be granted within the first three weeks of the Fall semester.
There are a number of ways to see the residence halls:
- Visit us at one of our Open House or Admitted Students days.
- Schedule a tour through Admissions.
- Check out our virtual tours on YouTube on our Tour the Residence Halls page.
We recognize that throughout your college years you will be exposed to alcohol use. It is our hope to educate you to make responsible choices. We also abide by state and local laws regarding drinking. Please make good choices and please be aware that we are here to help you accomplish this. Below is our Alcohol Policy:
- No alcohol may be possessed or consumed in any MMC residence hall owned and operated by MMC, or any MMC student housing locations.
- No individual, regardless of age, may possess, consume, and/or be in the presence of alcoholic beverages in or around the residence halls.
- Deliveries of alcohol from liquor stores or an outside source to the residence halls is not permitted.
- Residents aware of alcohol in the residence halls, whether consuming alcohol or not, may be in violation of this policy.
- Residents who invite guests (whether it is a resident or non-resident) who bring alcohol into their apartment/room will be in violation of this policy.
- Public intoxication is prohibited. Anyone violating this policy may be transported to the hospital at his/her own expense or arrested.
Good Samaritan Provision
Whenever a student assists an intoxicated individual in procuring the assistance of local or state police, security staff, residence life staff, or other medical professionals, neither the intoxicated individual, nor the individual who assists will be subject to disciplinary action (such as probation or removal from the residence hall) with respect to the alcohol incident. This provision does not preclude disciplinary action regarding other violations, such as theft, sexual harassment/assault, vandalism, etc. Individuals who are combative or not cooperative with the student, staff member, or medical professionals assisting will not be eligible for this provision.
This provision offers a health-related response to the incident rather than a disciplinary consequence and does not excuse or protect those individuals who deliberately or repeatedly violate the Alcohol Policy.
In order for this policy to apply, the intoxicated student(s) must agree to timely completion of alcohol education activities, assessment, and/or treatment depending on the level of concern for student health and safety. Serious or repeated incidents will prompt a higher degree of medical concern. Failure to complete recommended follow-up may result in disciplinary action and could prompt the imposition of a medical withdrawal.
The Good Samaritan provision does not limit the authority of law enforcement personnel or Residence Life staff to act as required at the time of an alleged violation.
No; however, we do welcome assistance animals. All pets, with the exception of assistance animals, are prohibited in all of our residence halls. Pets that are found by Residence Life staff will be removed immediately. Assistance animals must be approved by the Office of Disability Services.
Residents may check in after their assigned time, but not earlier.
Refrigerators and microwaves are provided in our residence halls, so personal mini-refrigerators and microwaves are not necessary or permitted.
Spaces within each room are assigned by color to each resident, so beds, dressers, desks, and closet spaces are pre-determined for each resident. It doesn’t matter when you arrive; you’ll still get your assigned spot!
You are responsible for setting a cleaning schedule with your roommates and ensuring your room is clean. Health and Safety Inspections will occur twice a semester to check the condition of your room.
