About the Department/School:

Residential life is an integral part of the total educational experience. The residential life program at Marist is based upon the philosophy of providing students with a safe, healthy, and attractive living environment that supports and supplements the educational mission of the College. Marist provides housing for over 3,300 undergraduate students in corridor, suite, apartment, and townhouse-style residences.

Students are housed using a "rites of passage'" philosophy, which recognizes that a student's developmental stage should be supported by his/her living environment. Therefore, freshman students are housed in residence halls designed to promote social interaction and staffed with individuals trained to work with freshmen and their specific adjustments.

As students move from freshman to senior year, they are housed in more independent living environments (suite-style, townhouses, and apartments) which helps to prepare them for their eventual move out into the world following graduation. Along the way, they acquire certain freedoms and responsibilities that will help them develop into mature and responsible citizens

The College will review its employment policies and procedures to ensure that barriers which may unnecessarily exclude protected groups are identified and eliminated. The College will also explore alternative approaches if any policy or practice is found to have a negative impact on protected groups.

Marist's policy of non-discrimination includes not only employment practices but also extends to all services and programs provided by the College. It shall be considered a violation of College policy for any member of the community to discriminate against any individual or group with respect to employment or attendance at Marist College on the basis of race, color, disability, religion, age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other condition established by law.
