The College maintains five residence halls, each housing between 75 and 250 students and offering a variety of amenities, including study-lounges, kitchenettes, and laundry rooms.
Rooms are single, double, or triple occupancy and are equipped with bed, dresser, desk, chair, closet, cable television access, as well as telephone (voice) and data jacks. Students supply their own linens, drapes, desk lamps, and other personal items.
All resident students are on a meal plan that covers the Fall and Spring semesters exclusive of vacation periods. Residents choose one of three meal plan options at the start of each semester.
Visits and guest policies and all other applicable policies appear in the Student Handbook. Students are expected to observe every reasonable precaution and follow residence hall regulations for the safety and well-being of all campus residents.

Alumnae Hall, built in 1965, a co-ed residence hall, houses all first-year residents. Completely renovated in 2006, the first floor Informal Lounge includes a video arcade, ping-pong tables and snack machines. In the adjacent Formal Lounge students and faculty frequently meet for conferences and social events. Also on the first floor are a TV lounge, study lounge and laundry room. Each of the three floors has a kitchenette and recreation lounge.
Marillac Hall, built in 1860, is our oldest residence hall and was home to the original owner of our property. Now, Marillac is home to approximately 75 students, with many room arranged as suites. There are several lounges and a small chapel on the first floor. Several Sisters of Charity also reside in a separate section of Marillac. Marillac’s Engagement Lounge holds the distinction of being the first place where men and women were allowed to visit on campus—but only for engaged couples, of course.
Mastronardi Hall, built in 2007, our newest residence hall houses more than 190 upper-class students and shares an entrance and laundry facilities with Alumnae Hall. Comprised of double rooms, Mastronardi is the first completely new building since the library was built in the 1967. The building is named after Mount alumna, Valerie and her husband, Nicholas Mastronardi.
Spellman Hall, built in 1962, and accommodating well over 200 students, Spellman underwent major renovations in the Summer of 2007. It houses first-year and upper-class residents. The residents’ Dining Room and the College Health Center are located here as well as residential facilities for our ELS students. Each floor has its own kitchen/recreation lounge.
Seton Hall, built in 1911 and underwent major renovations in the Fall of 2001, was the first residence hall built by the Sisters of Charity. Created in an Italian Renaissance style, its sixth floor commands what is perhaps the best view of the Palisades as well as the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges on the campus. Home to 80 men and women, on the first floor there has a kitchen, a formal dining room, and several lounges that are frequently used by residents for meeting, watching television and playing pool.
