Resident Services/Resources

Cable and Internet
All resident rooms have cable television connection(s) and wired and wireless Internet connectivity. Local TV and many popular cable channels are part of the cable package. The Student Help Desk (ext. 6990) can assist you in configuring your computer to connect to the campus network. The Student Help Desk also can provide information on obtaining a campus e-mail account and assist you with your cable television.

Telephone
All resident rooms have one phone line that can receive incoming calls and can place campus and local calls. In addition, there is one voice mailbox per student. The Student Help Desk is available to assist you if you have any difficulties with your phone service. For long distance service, you will need to bring a phone calling card or use a cell phone.

Mail
Each resident is issued a mailbox on campus: in the Rose Benté Lee Student Center, in the mailroom located on the ground floor of Berg Hall, or the main lobby level of Lee Ostapenko Hall. You can purchase stamps and send and receive packages at the Berg Hall mailroom during window hours (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m.-noon).

Parking and Transportation
Campus parking is very limited. Freshmen and sophomore resident students are not allowed to bring vehicles to campus. However, Marymount provides shuttle service to the region’s Metro system, enabling easy travel to all parts of the Washington metropolitan area, including downtown DC, the Ronald Reagan National Airport, and Union Station.

Student Health
The Student Health Center offers diagnosis, treatment, health education, and specialist referral to all resident students. During the fall and spring semesters, registered nurses staff the center. The University physician schedules regular clinic hours on campus. Psychiatric consultation is available by appointment.

Counseling Center
The Counseling Center supports the healthy psychological, social and intellectual growth of Marymount students. Services are free and confidential. Individual and group counseling, workshops, presentations, and crisis counseling are available.

Campus Safety
The Office of Campus Safety is dedicated to the motto “Students First,” providing for your safety, assistance, and information needs at all times. Campus Safety officers are on duty 24/7 and are easily accessible at a central point on campus, through several emergency call boxes, and at the touch of a campus phone.

Disability Support Services
The Disability Support Services Office is located in Gerard Phelan Hall. The director of DSS assists students in determining reasonable accommodations and is available throughout the year for assistance, information and referrals.

Housekeeping and Maintenance
The Office of Campus and Residential Services works closely with the University’s Physical Plant to address all student housekeeping and maintenance needs. Common area bathrooms, lounges, and hallways are cleaned on a daily basis by housekeeping staff. Housekeeping and maintenance staff members are available 24 hours a day in case of emergency.

Laundry Facilities
Each resident has access to laundry facilities. Residents in Rowley, Butler, and St. Joseph halls share laundry facilities in Rowley Hall. All laundry services are included in your room and board rate.

Dining Services
Marymount offers resident meal plans honored at the Main Dining Room in Gerard Phelan Hall and at the Ballston Cafeteria. Students are encouraged to submit menu suggestions and ideas. In addition to the dining room and cafeteria, a menu of sandwiches, salads, pizzas, beverages, and grab-and-go items are offered at Bernie’s cafe in the Rose Benté Lee Student Center. Students with special dietary restrictions can work with the Student Health Center to address their needs.
