Fall 2020 Reopening at the Mount


Residence Halls
Student Life

Mount Saint Mary College will be reopening for all students, faculty, and staff for the Fall 2020 semester. The first day of Classes is Monday, August 24. 

We have created this Fall 2020 Reopening website to serve as a resource for the entire Mount Community. This site will provide you with the latest information on a variety of topics related to the college’s reopening for the upcoming semester.



Move-in and Fall 2020 Schedule

Residence Halls will open in August. The move-in process will take place in phases to limit the number of people on campus at one time. Students will only be able to move in during their assigned times and can only bring one helper each. Students and helpers must wear a face covering at all times.
