MU ALERT ISSUED
Home Student Life Safety, Health, and Wellness COVID-19 Information March 15 Important information if you’re returning to campus
March 15, 2020

Dear Marymount Students,

As you know, Marymount University is taking proactive steps to preserve the health and safety of our campus community as we monitor the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). This includes our temporary move to online classes, as well as our encouragement for students to stay at home if possible during this period. We recognize that for some of you, it is necessary to return to campus, and our residence halls and dining halls are open to you during this time. From an administrative perspective, the University also remains operational and staff are available during normal business hours to address student service-related needs that may arise.

If you are returning to campus with the conclusion of Spring Break, there are a few things you should know beforehand.
 
  • Residence halls are open to Marymount students only until further notice. For the safety of everyone here, we will be restricting student guests in our halls. This includes family, friends or anyone else not affiliated with Marymount. Students at the Rixey should register all guests at the front desk.  
  • We are requiring all on campus to wear Marymount ID’s. We will also be restricting access to campus for those outside of the University. This means students, faculty and staff on campus must wear their ID with a provided lanyard for quick identification. This is a necessary step in order to secure our campus.
  • Housing Registration. If you plan to be here and haven’t already completed the Housing Registration form, please do so. If your plans have changed, please update your information at Updated Registration.
  • Modified hours for campus amenities and services. Until we resume in-person classes, we will be shifting hours and schedules for various resources on campus. 
  • Athletic contests have been suspended through at least March 29. Student-athletes can expect further guidance and communication from the Athletics Department.

Please feel free to contact the office of Student Living at rlife@marymount.edu or 703-284-1608 with any questions, or talk to the duty staff when you're on campus. Questions about academic or other University services can also be answered through our hotline at 703-284-5782 or covidhotline@marymount.edu. Please be on the lookout for an email tomorrow from your Provost, Dr. Hesham El-Rewini, with details related to your classes.
 In this time of uncertainty, it’s important that we stay in communication with each other. Please help us serve you better by communicating any questions or concerns.  
 
 Sincerely,
 William Bisset, Ph.D.
Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs
