  • Dining Dollars are a convenient way to eat on campus and purchase household items from the C-Store. Dining Dollars work as a declining balance plan, and can be used on campus in Starbucks and the 4th floor Café, as well as at participating off-campus locations. All residential students must participate in the Dining Dollars program. All residents are charged a mandatory $1,350 per semester. Students can always add additional Dining Dollars to their declining balance card. 

    In January session, residents are able to use any fall Dining Dollars remaining on their account.

    Remaining Dining Dollars will roll over each semester until the student graduates or withdraws, and at which time any remaining money will be forfeited.

  • 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.

  • 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:  


    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.



  • The housing contract is a binding document committing you to housing for a full academic year. Please carefully consider whether you will want to live on campus before seeking off-campus housing options, as you will be financially responsible for a full year of housing costs once you submit your contract.

  • Danila DeVita

    Danila De Vita, an Italian student from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, majors in International Studies while pursuing minors in Social Work & Business Management.  Danila writes, “I always receive one-on one personal help from my well educated professors and academic advisors in order for me to succeed in the best possible way. MMC always has resources available and makes sure every student is a name, not just a number.”


  • Sofija Gligorov Sofija Gligorov, from Kumanovo, Macedonia, studied Business Management, with a concentration in International Business and Economics.  She was the valedictorian of the graduating class 2013.  Sofija writes, “I am an MMC alum currently working in Corporate Treasury at JP Morgan Chase. I loved my experience at MMC because of the college’s location, its professors, and its inclusive community. MMC was my second family away from home, and I would definitely recommend it to other international students because they will never feel lonely at Marymount. The activities, the brilliant professors, the sounds of the city all make it an exciting adventure that drives one’s inner growth and boosts independence.”


  • Alyssa McGuigan, who is pursuing a BA in Theatre Arts with Minors in Musical Theatre and Drama Therapy, hails from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  Alyssa writes, Alyssa McGuigan “I am an international transfer student and MMC was able to transfer the majority of my credits, which allowed me to take two minors. They were super helpful with organizing and submitting my student visa information which I appreciate every year. MMC is a very culturally diverse college and very welcoming to international and transfer students. I love the small classes, especially for theatre as the teachers are able to focus more on each student and really connect with them on a personal level. My other college had a minimum of 40-50 students whereas my theatre classes at MMC are less than 15 students per class. I love the individual attention that I get from all my teachers. It makes me want to work harder to be the best student I can be. I definitely recommend MMC to international students as they are very accomodating with your transfer credits (if you have any) and they make the transition process with moving to a new country and getting your visas a lot easier. Plus, it’s in one of the greatest cities in the world! Who wouldn’t want to experience a college in the city that never sleeps? Especially for me as a theatre student where Broadway is a short walk away!”
