 Residence Life FAQ

Spring Move-in:

When can I move onto campus for the Spring?

Move in dates for Spring 2021 are January 17 and 18 by appointment only.  In order to be eligible for move in, students MUST be cleared by Health Services and Bursar. We will send an email to all residents with their move-in date and times on December 22.  

If I need to move in after January 18, can I?
Yes, please email and we can schedule an alternate move in date after January 18.

Can students/residents have help with moving into the halls? Is there a time limit for move-in?

As of now, two members of the student's household are allowed to help the student move in during their move in appointment. Parents traveling from non-contiguous states must adhere to all travel quarantine protocols in order to assist with move-in. You will receive a specific window of time for your appointment and will be required to leave when that window of time has passed.

What types of rooms are available for Spring 2021? Double and single rooms are available for Spring 2021. Some double rooms in Bogner Hall have lofted beds and a third set of furniture that cannot be removed from the room. You will be notified when you are assigned a room if you have this type of room.

Is there a way I can see what my room looks like before move-in?

Yes. Email to request pictures of your room be sent to you before move in.   

How do I ship packages to Molloy for my room?

Covid Testing:

What are the testing requirements for out-of-state students before move-in?

On November 3rd, New York State issued revised travel advisory guidance, which may be found here. Based upon this guidance, individuals traveling to New York State from a non-contiguous state or from an international destination that has a level 2 or 3 travel health notice, may test-out of the mandatory 14-day quarantine if they (i) obtain a diagnostic COVID test within 72 hours prior to arrival in New York; (ii) quarantine for three days upon arrival to New York; and (iii) obtain a COVID diagnostic test on the fourth day of quarantine and receive a negative result from that test. Students must meet the test-out criteria above, submit both negative test results to, and be cleared by Health Services in order to move into their residence hall room and/or attend classes in person. Students must also provide proof of quarantine including a hotel receipt or address of private residence with accompanying dates of quarantine.   

Students who are from New York or from a contiguous state (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Vermont), must take a Covid test within 3 days of their move in appointment and receive negative test results.  

What is the protocol if a student gets a positive COVID-19 test while in the halls?

If a student tests positive for COVID-19 while living on campus, Residence Life will work with that student to immediately place them student in one of the isolation spaces on campus. The student will work with Health Services and the Department of Health to contact trace and identify any other close contacts that may need to quarantine. If students need to quarantine, Residence Life will work with that student to immediately place them in one of the quarantine spaces on campus.  

During a student's quarantine/isolation period, Residence Life is the student's go-to contact and will coordinate all food delivery from the Anselma Room as well as connect the student with virtual events happening on campus to keep the student engaged!
