  • Residents wishing to return at any point in January, up to January 23, will need to submit a January Housing Request Form and pay for January housing.  The fee cannot be pro-rated.
  • Current residents of the building who have not registered for the January session may be a day or overnight guest during the January session; however, if they are not a guest of a roommate they are unable to access their own room.
  • 55th Street: During the January session, students may have three (3) overnight guests. Students must submit the overnight guest form as well as have emailed approval from their roommates’ MMC email account giving permission for the overnight guest.  See the January Housing Request Form for more information.

With the exception of the modified guest policy, all other Residence Life policies remain in effect.

Dining Options

On-campus dining options are limited in January. 
You are able to use the remainder of your fall Dining Dollars during the January term. Spring Dining Dollars are not active until the first day of the spring semester. 

Please note that dining locations may have modified hours during the January session due to lower demand.

If you would like to add money to your Dining Dollars for the January term, please do so at the Center for Student Services or click here.


55th Street Renovations

If you live on floors 23 and 24 at 55th Street:

We are excited to announce your bathrooms will be renovated over Winter/January Break!  A significant amount of work will be completed before your return on January 1; however, you will not have full access to your bathroom while the renovations are underway.  There are many steps to this renovation, and you will have access to your shower at the end of each day. Unfortunately, the sink and toilet are the final items to be installed, so you will need to use the kitchen sink for brushing teeth or washing hands. For a toilet, you can use the facilities in the lobby until your renovation is complete.    

We fully understand this is an inconvenience, but there is little time during the year when we can make these significant improvements to 55th Street; plus, you will have a new bathroom before spring semester begins!  Since there will be vendors in your apartment, please remember to take home all valuables or secure them in your locked bedroom prior to leaving for break, and daily upon your return.  Work is expected to be complete by January 24, and we will keep you updated as the work progresses.
