Residence Life Student Services

Residence Life
A few of the perks of living at the Mount include free laundry and micro-fridges.

Internet - Wireless Internet is widely available across campus as well as via an Ethernet Internet jack within each students' bedroom. Visit the Center for Instructional Technology website for questions and problems with your computer or Internet service.

Laundry - Each residence hall has a designated laundry facility equipped with ample heavy-duty washers and dryers. The university provides this service at no cost to the students. Another free service is, where students can view the live status of the laundry and how soon it will be done.

Micro-Fridges - Micro-Fridges are available for rent in rooms without kitchens. This unit consists of a refrigerator/freezer, with an attached microwave.

Furniture - All residents have a desk, chair, bed, closet, and dresser drawers. For the apartments, all of the above plus living room and dining room furniture. The furniture may not be removed or stored outside the room.

Storage for personal belongings - There is no on-campus storage for any of your belongings that do not fit in your assigned residence. All belongings must be removed at the end of the academic year as the University does not offer storage for student belongings during the summer months.

Mailboxes - All student mailboxes are located in the McGowan Center, next to the Barnes and Noble Bookstore.

Maintenance Requests

Resident students should speak with their Resident Assistant (RA) if they would like to submit a maintenance request for their room, suite, or apartment. Any after-hours urgent work orders should immediately be shared with an RA or MSMU Public Safety at 301-447-5357 to contact on-call staff from the Physical Plant to assist with your maintenance concerns.

How long does it take to complete my work order?
Most routine Work Orders handled by Physical Plant staff take less than a week. Other Work Orders may take longer to fix for a number of reasons. For example, parts may need to be ordered or the problem needs to be referred to the Physical Plant or outside contractors. Work Orders may take longer to fix at the beginning and end of semesters due to the high volume of requests.

After-hours urgent requests go to Public Safety.
