  2. When Does North Hall Close During The Academic Year?

    NMC residential students usually vacate the premises during NMC breaks. North Hall will be open for students during the following breaks at no additional charge, i.e., Thanksgiving break, break between semesters, and Spring break. However, it should be noted that North Hall residents will not be allowed to host any guests or visitors during that time. If a resident is found to be in violation of NMC policies during the breaks, the resident will be asked to leave and return when the break is over. (Please note that if a resident is planning to reside for only Fall semester, the resident must vacate at the end of the semester.)

Students are responsible for the assembly of the kits. Instructions are provided.

  11. Who Is Responsible For Keeping The Bathroom And Living Area Clean?

    The student is responsible for the cleanliness of their room/living area. Brooms, dust pans, mops and vacuums are available behind the service desk for students to use when needed. Bringing cleaning products to keep the bathroom sink, shower, toilet and mirror clean is highly suggested. Complimentary toilet paper and trash bags are provided at the service desk. Routine Health and Safety checks are conducted with fines imposed if the student fails, so keeping a clean room will be very important.
