Welcome to the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership!

The mission of the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) is to create a vibrant and inclusive campus community by engaging residential and commuter students, fostering student leadership, preserving campus traditions, and nurturing a diverse array of clubs and organizations.

CSIL is committed to actively involving students in all aspects of campus life, providing meaningful opportunities for engagement and development. We encourage students to explore diverse interests, build connections, and contribute to a thriving campus culture. 

Be bold. Be Valiant!

Through CSIL students discover their passions, develop essential leadership skills, and become influential change-makers in their communities.

Living on Campus

move in

Residence Life at Manhattanville University is an integral part of the educational program and academic support services of the institution. Far more than simply housing and roommate requests — we strive to create a dynamic living environment in which all students are comfortable and able to fully develop as individuals. 

Reserve your spot in housing early to have a better chance of ending up in the residence hall of your choice!
