For new residential students moving into the residence halls, your designated helper will also need to provide results of a negative COVID test.
When you arrive, you will be given a COVID rapid test kit. You will need to take the test and wait for the results. Once you show a negative result, you will be given your key to your apartment.
For Cooper Square residents, you will check-in and test in the lower level lounge.
For 55 th Street residents, check-in on Thursday will occur in the first floor lobby near the mailroom. After Thursday, check-in will be located in the RA Office on the second floor.
If your test is positive, you will have the option to return home or immediately be moved into our isolation spaces. After your isolation, you will be given the key to your apartment.
Throughout the spring semester, any students who are coming to campus and/or residing in the residence halls are strongly encouraged to get tested on a weekly basis. Find a testing location near you. Get boosted. All students who are eligible for a vaccine booster will be required to show proof of a booster later in the spring semester. Details will be forthcoming.
The Residence Life program at Marymount Manhattan College is committed to the overall growth, development, and education of its residents. Our primary goal is to provide a safe, secure, and comfortable educational environment while providing residents the opportunities to become involved, exercise their leadership skills, and be part of a residential community. We seek to promote individual growth: challenging values and attitudes, developing qualities of respect for others, intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, cultural awareness, self-discipline, independent judgment, and personal responsibility.
The Residence Life staff is committed to offering you an inclusive environment that will allow you to take healthy risks, grow individually, and participate in enriching and challenging activities.
We hope you will take full advantage of your living environment by participating in activities, standing up for yourself and others, and speaking up for what you believe has value.
Being a part of the residential community will allow you to learn a great deal about yourself and others. Your college experience can be greatly enhanced by your out-of-classroom and community involvement. Each individual has the responsibility to behave in a manner that does not interfere with the rights of others. In exercising your personal rights with respect for others, you can help to ensure a positive environment.
