What do I do if something breaks in my room/bathroom/suite or my lights go out?
Just use this simple Maintenance Service Request Form. Please keep in mind that Maintenance is not responsible for broken furniture and/or new furniture requests. For those issues, contact your building's Resident Director, or your RA.
The internet connection/cable in my room isn't working. How should I get this fixed?
Lost keys must be reported to the RD of your building or Residence Life & Conference Services immediately. The RD will order a lock-change and provide new keys for the student within 24 business hours. If your keys are attached to identification, you should also file a report with the Campus Safety office. Students will be charged $75 per lock for a lock change
What do I do if I am not getting along with my roommate?
Adjusting to campus life may be difficult for some people, but if you learn to communicate on issues that cause disagreements, you may have an easier adjustment.
The first thing to do is to try talking to your roommate about your issues.
If that is unsuccessful, contact your Resident Advisor (RA) so that they may mediate any discussions or issues between you and your roommate.
If all else fails, make an appointment with your Resident Director (RD) to discuss other options.
How do I register overnight guests?
According to Student Handbook/Code of Conduct, a visitor is defined as non-Manhattanville person or a commuter student of Manhattanville College who is visiting a student in one of the residence hall. All visitors to the residence halls that stay for more than 6 hours must be registered. To register a visitor, the visitor must complete the steps below if they are a commuter or a non-Manhattanville person AND must receive a visitor pass from Campus Safety.
