The campus is very, very strict. How strict? Strict to the tenth power. The College has a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol and drinking on campus. Students will not automatically be suspended or expelled for drinking, but if they are caught, the RAs are obligated to write them up. If a student gets caught multiple times, he or she can get into big trouble. However, don't worry—no one has ever heard of anybody getting caught more than once. Along with drinking, the campus absolutely does not tolerate drug dealing or doing drugs. If a student gets caught doing this, then there is a 90 percent chance that that student will be expelled from the school.

Because the campus has a strict set of rules, not a lot of students try to do too much, although a few try to do something every now and then. Usually, security and the RAs keep things under control. The good thing is that both security and the RAs are on your side. If you don't make a lot of noise and don't get out of control, they won't bother you. Students only get into trouble when they take advantage of the leeway. When the administration gets involved, a student's future is no longer in their own hands. Basically, if a student does anything that endangers another person, that student will be expelled or suspended. However, generally, Manhattan College is one of the safest schools around, largely due to its responsible students. 

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Doing/dealing illegal drugs
  • Drinking in dorm rooms
Visitation Policies
A "guest" is any non-Manhattan College person who comes to visit a College resident. A guest is either a "day" guest or an "overnight" guest and is to be at least 17 years old. A "day" guest is required to leave a building no later than midnight; otherwise, the MC resident will be charged with a fine. An "overnight guest" is allowed to stay up to two consecutive nights and three consecutive days, leaving no later than noon on the day the guest pass expires. However, overnight guests may not visit during the first two weekends of the first semester, the first full weekend of the second semester, during winter intersession, the final exam period, and during holiday periods.
