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 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.
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?
Overnight guests must first register with the Office of Campus Safety and Security upon arrival to campus. Overnight guests must also be registered with the RA on duty in your hall by 11:00 p.m. Guests will not be allowed to stay if they are not registered with an RA by these times. In order for a guest to be registered they must be accompanied by a student host and must present valid photo identification. For more questions on the guest policy please refer to the Student Handbook and Code of Community Conduct.
How do I pick my room for the following academic year?
We have a "Room Selection" process that takes place at the end of each spring semester for the following academic year. Information on the Room Selection Process is sent out to the students during the spring semester.
I have a medical condition and I need a medical housing placement, what is the process for a medical room?
Students applying for a medical placement must submit a completed Manhattanville College Medical Housing Accommodations Application. The form can be found on theOffice Of Residence Life & Conference Services page, and can be mailed to, or dropped off at the Office Of Residence Life & Conference Services, Spellman Hall 111.
Your Medical Housing Accommodations Application must be completed by a physician/licensed mental health professional explaining the medical need for a special housing placement. Medical Housing Accommodations Applications will be evaluated by a committee composed of members of the Office of Residence Life, Health Center, Counseling Center, the Dean of Students, and the Vice President of Student Affairs. Individuals with approved evaluation forms will be placed in designated rooms by the above-mentioned committee. Please keep in mind the following:
Your medical placement may be in a double room with another individual with similar medical needs.
As there are only a limited number of medical spaces available only a limited number of Medical Room Evaluation Forms will be approved.
Failure to meet payment deadlines as indicated on billing statements from the Office of Student Accounts will result in loss of housing assignment.
I have allergies and I need an air conditioner. Do I have to provide a doctor's note?
Please review the instructions for completing the Medical Housing Accommodations Application above. If approval is granted, students are responsible for installing the air conditioner, as well as contacting the Physical Plant at 914.323.5415 to set up an appointment for the finalized installation to be inspected. Please note: air conditioners need to be 6,000 BTU or less and students are expected to resubmit an updated note for each academic year.
