Welcome back, Griffins!

We’ve updated our Health and Safety Guidelines for the Fall 2021 semester. Visit MMC Onward to get the details.

You’re not the typical student, so your life at MMC won’t be typical either.

Our Quad is Central Park. Our “big game” is a visit to Yankee Stadium. And “rush”? Well, that means snagging discount tickets to a Broadway show, of course!

In other words, New York City will be your playground, your classroom, and your home. Your life here will expand your thinking about what it means to be a student, a neighbor, a member of society, and a leader. Thrilling is our word for it. Let the adventure begin!

Location, Location, Location!

Five Boroughs, Over 300 Neighborhoods

New York City isn’t simply where our campus buildings are located; the city is our campus. Broadway is your entertainment. Central Park is your backyard. Your new favorite hangouts could be a block away or anywhere the largest subway system in the country takes you. Your weekend plans might include a poetry slam at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe or dancing at the Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturdays. Pick a borough and start wandering. Even if you explored one new neighborhood every week during your time at MMC, you still wouldn’t have visited them all.

NYC Living: Midtown or Downtown

You love New York, so live New York. Our residence halls are in the middle of the action. Our 32-story Midtown residence hall, just 16 blocks from campus, gives you a bird’s eye view of all that NYC has to offer. In the East Village, our Cooper Square residence hall puts you in the heart of the city’s funky, vibrant downtown scene. Both places offer the best of big-city living with the comfort of tight-knit community. Ready to venture out on your own? We can help you make the most of NYC living.

Great (And Cheap!) Eats

Use your MMC Dining Dollars for delicious food and beverage options at our convenient campus dining centers, as well as several nearby locations. You’ll also snag discounts for local eats at some of our neighborhood partners when you use your student ID. With over 20,000 restaurants in the city, the next culinary trend is yours for the tasting.

Finding Your Community

You don’t need to fit in at MMC. You already belong. Share your interests and establish lifelong friendships through leadership initiatives, community engagement experiences, student organizations, and social justice efforts. Your passions are celebrated here.

Taking Care of Yourself

The hectic pace of college and city life will exhilarate and challenge you. Our health and wellness center has a dedicated team of expert professionals ready to give you the support you need.

Celebrating Each Other

Meet new friends and join a student org at the annual fall Apple Fest. Cheer for Team MMC at Homecoming on Roosevelt Island. Have a lively discussion with your classmates at the Barry Commoner Lecture for the Environment. Share your poetry and fiction with faculty, students, and guests at the Honors Day Colloquium. Our annual traditions showcase you: your accomplishments, your values, and your bright future.
