Student Affairs

Residential move-in

Phased move-in to residence halls will occur between February 15 and March 1.  Students will receive specific assigned dates for move-in from the Office of Housing and Residential Life by January 15.  Students coming from non-contiguous states and abroad will be subject to further testing requirements and additional quarantine protocols per New York State guidelines.  

Residence hall occupancy and access

In order to provide an on-campus living experience that promotes public health and safety, Marist housing will restrict the number of students living on campus to standard occupancy. In most cases, this means no more than two people per room.

Building access for residential halls will be restricted to students who live in each residence hall.

Students are allowed to have a maximum of one (1) guest above the occupancy of their room. The maximum number of students allowed in a common space at any given time is equal to the occupancy of that room/apartment/townhouse. 

Marist students living in campus residence facilities are required to adhere to specific policies related to visitation.  These policies are in place to reduce risk to your health and safety as well as others in the campus community. 

Freshmen Residence halls (Leo, Sheahan, Marian, Champagnat, and Midrise):

Students residing in these freshmen residence halls are not permitted to have guests from outside of their building visit with them.  Students are allowed to have a maximum of 1 guest above the occupancy of their room.  For example, if two students share a room, then a maximum of one guest is allowed for a total of three in the room.

For building common lounges, each lounge will be posted with a maximum occupancy granted that students are masked and at least six feet apart. 

Midrise Residence hall: 

Students residing in this building (freshmen, transfer, and sophomore) are not permitted to have guests from outside of their building visit with them.  Students are allowed to have a maximum of 1 guest (from within the building) above the occupancy of their room.  For example, if two students share a room, then a maximum of 1 guest is allowed for a total of three in the room. Since Midrise offers suite accommodations, the maximum number of students allowed in a suite at any given time is equal to the occupancy of the entire suite.  For example, if a Midrise suite has three bedrooms, each with two students per bedroom, the maximum number of students allowed in the suite common area, masked and distanced at six feet apart, is six.  

Townhouse and apartments for sophomores, juniors, and seniors (Lower & Upper New Townhouses, Foy Townhouses, Lower & Upper West Cedar, Lower & Upper Fulton, North End Housing and Conklin Hall):

Students residing in these areas are permitted to have guests from outside of their apartment/townhouse visit with them.  Students are allowed to have a maximum of 1 guest above the occupancy of their room.  For example, if two students share a room, then a maximum of 1 guest is allowed for a total of three in the room. Since these facilities offer common spaces, the maximum number of students allowed in a common space at any given time is equal to the occupancy of that apartment/townhouse. For example, if a Foy Townhouse houses 10 students, then the maximum number of students allowed in the common area, masked and distanced at six feet apart, is 10.  

For North End housing common lounges, each lounge will be posted with a maximum occupancy granted that students are masked and at least six feet apart.
