Residential Life

Packing for Spring

A general guideline for packing for the spring: please pack lightly!


Due to more complicated testing and quarantine procedures, we are unable to allow anyone who is not a current student or employee to enter Curtis Hall or the Commons during the spring semester nor assist with move-in.

COVID-19 Action Plan

MMA has temporary housing for residential students who must be isolated because of a diagnosis of COVID-19, or quarantined due to identification as a close contact with a patient with COVID-19. However, this housing is limited and therefore reserved for those who are unable to travel home to isolate or quarantine.

In addition, if circumstances require that the Academy transition to remote learning prior to the planned end of the semester in April, your COVID-19 Action Plan should include what you will do if you must return home for remote learning, if necessary.

Therefore, we are asking you to update your COVID-19 Action Plan at the MyStudentLife gateway for either getting home or for an alternate place to stay on a short-term basis if you are required to quarantine or isolate during the twelve-week spring semester.

Testing and Quarantine

All members of the MMA community who will be working and studying on campus during the spring semester will participate in the COVID-19 entry testing program. Please see the Health & Safety and Reporting Dates sections of this site for more information.

If you meet one of the requirements to live off campus and plan to move off campus for the Spring 2021 semester, you must fill out a 2020-2021 Off-Campus Housing Application at and email requesting to break your current On-Campus Housing contract. Once you have sent the email and filled out the application, your Spring 2021 Curtis Hall booking will be cancelled. Please do not submit this application if you have not secured off campus housing.
