Facilities and Services
As you will observe, the residence halls offer more than just a place to eat and sleep. Residential Life is the housing option that offers the most extensive study and academic assistance resources, as well as the most comprehensive set of meal and support services available within steps away from your residential home.
For your protection and assistance, you are asked to report any accident or illness to your Resident Assistant or the Office of Student Living, who will be able to assist you with any special needs or accommodations you may have. If you need medical attention, the Student Health Center is available to you. You can reach the Health Center at 703-284-1610.
Maintaining a safe living environment is a high priority for Student Living; however, the most significant factor in maintaining a secure environment is the support of the residents. Residents can help foster a safe living environment by doing the following:
- Locking rooms when unoccupied or when residents are asleep
- Promptly report lost or stolen room keys to Campus Safety, the Office of Student Living, or your Resident Assistant
- Do not prop exterior doors open or leave lounge or hallway windows open
- Do not let someone enter the hall or floor by “tailgating” – following closely behind you after you’ve scanned in
- Immediately report any strange or unusual behavior or persons to the residence hall staff or Campus Safety (703-284-1600)
- Keep cars locked when parking on or near university property
For your safety and security, room locks are changed following the report of a lost key. There is a $180.00 charge per core (If you are in a suite you will be charged for all doors being re-core) each time you lose a key. In the event you find yourself locked out of your room, lockouts will be $5 after the first 2.
Laundry facilities are conveniently located in every building. Laundry services are covered in your residence hall room cost, providing our students with unlimited washing and drying. Most laundry rooms are furnished with folding tables. Washers and Dryers are also enabled with a LaundryAlert system that provides real-time information for when your loads are done. Ask your Resident Assistant for information on accessing LaundryAlert.
It is your responsibility to remove your clothes in a timely fashion (when the load is done). If items being washed or dried go missing or you believe they have been stolen, report the issue immediately to Campus Safety (703-284-1600)
All campus mail is handled by the Mail Room located on the G1 level of Berg Hall. Packages may be picked up here between the hours of 9:00 am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday and 9:00 am-1:00 pm on Saturdays. Smaller mail items will be placed in your assigned mailbox, located in Rowley, Ostapenko, and the Lee Center.
Campus parking passes are available at the Parking Office in the corner office outside the main campus Library facing the Blue Garage. Students who wish to apply for parking on campus can contact the Parking Office at email@example.com for more information. Students must have Junior status to be granted a parking pass or may fill out a parking exemption form which can be found at the Parking Office.
If you are going to be absent from your hall for multiple nights (3 or more), you are encouraged to notify your Resident Assistant so that you can be contacted if an emergency should arise within the hall.
Residents are responsible for making guests aware of the Residence Hall policies. Residents may also be held responsible for their guest’s behavior. No more than one guest per resident of the room may stay overnight. Guests may not stay overnight for more than three consecutive nights and a total of seven nights during a semester. Guests may only stay in rooms or suites designated for their gender. Overnight guests are always subject to the consent of the room, suite, or apartment mates. Overnight guests must be approved through the Office of Student Living at least 48 hours in advance of the guest’s arrival.
Residents are expected to promptly report any maintenance issues through the “Maintenance Requests” log-in through http://my.marymount.edu. Any maintenance issues that are not reported may result in damage charges during the checkout process. During check-in make sure your Room Condition Report (RCR) notes any existing damages or issues in the room so they will not be charged to you at a later time. You can report damages on your RCR with your Resident Assistant during check-in. As you find it necessary during the year to have repairs made to your room or common areas, please contact your Resident Assistant and submit an online Maintenance Request through my.Marymount -> Sign On Links. Resident Assistants are able to assist you in having the work completed by the professional maintenance staff.
In the event of a theft, contact Campus Safety immediately (703-284-1600). You should also notify your Resident Assistant. Your Resident Assistant can support you as you work with Campus Safety to relocate your missing property. Since Marymount University is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged property, it is wise to either obtain personal property insurance or arrange for coverage under your parents’ homeowners insurance. The best insurance, however, is to keep your door(s) locked.
