Guest Policy 2022-2023

Residential Life will have a modified guest policy for the 2022-2023 academic year. The full policy is in the Student Handbook but find the updated information below:

Residential students may have a guest during the day - hours of 8AM to 12AM. All guests who are visiting the residential area during the day as a guest of a residential student must sign in, show proof of COVID vaccination, and leave their photo identification card with Residential Life staff at the front desk of the residence hall space or with Campus Safety if a staff member is not available. This must be done upon entrance to the residential space. All day-time guests must check out and retrieve their photo identification by midnight of that day. Failure to leave in a timely manner could result in disciplinary action. All day-time guests must be out of the residential hall space in Dobbs Ferry and out of the building in Manhattan by midnight.

Residential students can request one overnight guest at a time. Guests can stay overnight Friday to Saturday and/or Saturday to Sunday only. Any exceptions are made at the discretion of the Office of Residential Life. We have an electronic request form that is required to be submitted a minimum of 72 hours/three full days prior to the day the guest is arriving. (IE if the guest is arriving on a Friday then the request must be submitted by Monday night.)

All overnight guests must submit proof of vaccination and one booster shot for COVID-19 on the request form. All residents of the room and/or suite must approve the guest and upload the approval to the request form. If these two conditions are not met as a part of the submission, guests will not be approved to stay overnight. These items will not be accepted after the submission deadline.

As a reminder, the residential hall spaces are closed during breaks when classes are not in session so there will be no guests allowed in the residential hall spaces during these times, unless explicitly approved by the Office of Residential Life. These time frames include Wednesday-Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, the entirety of winter break, Friday after classes end and Spring Break starts through the morning that classes start after Spring Break ends.

Mail Retrieval

All residential students, regardless of campus, get a mail box located in their residential space assigned to them after move in. Students can also receive packages.
Mercy College will accept mail for residential students after move in during the academic year.
The mailing address is as follows:
"Student Name"
Mercy College - "Residential Space"
