Families and Supporters
Welcome, Families and Supporters!
We have a number of services for families to get connected and engaged with the Manhattanville College community.
Prospective and current student families and supporters will find the resources and information they need to explore and connect with Manhattanville.
Commuter and residential students are encouraged to take advantage of on-campus dining.
Families and supporters can reload dining dollars easily on our dining on campus page.
The complete academic record of every current and former student of Manhattanville College is maintained by the Registrar's Office. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), academic information is generally only released after receiving a written or electronic authorization from the student.
Our orientation program has events, activities, and academic information sessions to acclimate students and their loved ones to the Manhattanville campus. You will have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and students, learn how to get involved on campus, and learn the tips to success.
We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you into the Manhattanville family!

Community Life and Residence Services at Manhattanville College is an integral part of the educational program and academic support services of the institution. Far more than simply housing and roommate requests — we strive to create a dynamic living environment in which all students are comfortable and able to fully develop as individuals.
The Department of Campus Safety and Security has one overriding goal — to provide a safe and working community for all students, staff, and faculty, so that the community can pursue their goals and objectives.
Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) is a safe, confidential place where students receive comprehensive, individualized care. SHAC prioritizes the physical and emotional wellness of our students and the campus community.
We operate under an interdisciplinary model of care and approach the physical and emotional wellness of our students in a holistic and culturally sensitive way. Our licensed providers work as a team and carefully consider the interplay between one’s emotional and physical well-being. We employ a student-focused approach and our staff are dedicated to meeting the ever-changing needs of a diverse student body.
The Center for Student Accessibility partners with students to empower them to take ownership of their college journey. By modeling problem-solving strategies, our staff helps to promote self-determination and self-advocacy skills in order to enhance students' abilities to use their own strengths to address challenges. These are skills students will carry with them beyond their years at Manhattanville.
The Center also strives to increase positive dialogue surrounding disabilities, promoting the "people first" approach and communicating the message that disability is an integral part of diversity. In this spirit, the Center for Student Accessibility actively seeks to create an environment that embraces all students.
Manhattanville enrolls students in one of three academic schools: Arts & Sciences, Education, or Nursing and Health Sciences. We offer services that include extra support for students study for a class, write a paper, or search for internships, and a team of academic professionals that are dedicated to seeing our students succeed.
