Both courts are available for recreational use during daylight hours, seven days a week.

Laundry & Vending Machines

Laundry rooms are located on every floor of the residence hall. The washers are front/top-loading units that use far less water and, as a result, use less detergent as well.

Residents should report any malfunction of laundry equipment directly to Residence Hall Staff.  Facilities work orders/tickets should not be submitted.

Campus Safety

Your  Safety, Our Mission

At Marygrove, the only thing more important than your education is your safety. We are blessed with a peaceful, beautiful, and friendly campus — and we take every precaution to keep it that way. The Campus Safety Office, located in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Building LA003, handles all safety and security issues, from crime/injury/accident reporting, ID cards to lost & found and parking permits.

Campus Safety & Residence Life

Fact: Marygrove Campus Safety’s presence is more prominent in Residence Life than at most institutions. That’s right! Officers lend their services at the front desk at all hours except Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm. How’s that for service? Having a Campus Safety Officer at the desk helps maintain the safe living and learning community we take pride in at Florent Gillet Hall.

Campus Safety patrols the campus 24 hours a day which includes, but is not limited to, the interior and exterior of all buildings, walkways, parking lots and perimeter of the campus.

The Student's Responsibility

Students must assume responsibility for their personal safety and the security of their belongings by taking simple precautions. For example, although the campus is well-lit, any student, male or female, may request an escort service when returning to the residence hall late at night. Residence Hall doors and windows should be locked at all times, especially when the room is unoccupied. Valuable items, such as stereos, cameras, televisions, and iPods, should be conspicuously marked.

Students should report any suspicious-looking activities or individuals that they feel do not belong in their residence halls or any unusual incidents in and around the residence halls to the Office of Residence Life at extension 1601 or 1380, or by dialing Campus Safety Dispatch at extension 1411; off-campus dial direct 313-927-1411.

Annual Reports/Crime Statistics

You can find detailed annual reports, including campus crime statistics, by visiting the Campus Safety website.

Reporting of Incidents

The Campus Safety Office responds to all complaints made by students, staff, or persons on campus conducting business or using the facilities. A log is maintained of all criminal and injury reports in the Director’s office or you can access the latest crime stats at Marygrove online.

ID Cards

For safety, convenience, and to access Marygrove’s wealth of resources, all students are required to have an ID card. You can obtain your card at the Campus Safety Office. Proof of registration must be provided. ID cards must be renewed every semester by getting a current semester sticker. There is a fee to replace a lost or stolen ID card. Students should pay the fee at the Business Office, and then take the receipt to the Campus Safety Office to get a new ID card made.

Have an emergency?

24 - Hour Emergency Line: (313) 927-1411 or ext. 1411

Your roommate can help define your college experience. Whether it’s an old friend or someone you have just met, having a roommate will give you the chance to learn something new about yourself and about other people. Most students living in the residence hall will have at least one roommate, but may be assigned to a room for 4 students. The residence hall is co-ed by floor. Female students will have female roommates, and male students will have male roommates.

All new applicants? You can request to be in the same room when you submit your housing application! Make sure to apply early, and it’s helpful if everyone applies at the same time. If you want to live with someone new, we will match you with another student. We will even try to match you with a student from another part of the country, or even another part of the world, if you make this request on your application. Matches are based on how you answer lifestyle questions on your application.

Roommate Agreement

Roommates have the option of completing a Roommate Agreement. All first year students are given a Roommate Living Agreement to be completed by all parties in the room. It is intended to provide a basis for roommates to communicate and share living space.

Here are a few suggestions that will make establishing your living agreement easier: 

  • Be honest.
  • Be willing to compromise.
  • Know what is reasonable.
  • Work on what you can agree upon; then ask your resident assistant (RA) to help mediate, if necessary.
  • Set a date to review the agreement and make any necessary revisions to best accommodate all parties. 

Know Your Resources

Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders who are located throughout the residence hall to assist in success.  RAs are trained to help mediate roommate issues, connect students to resources, provide programming and community development and to ensure safety and sound communities.

The Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) is a professional staff member who lives in the community and provides daily support and leadership to the RA staff and residential community. The RLC is available during office hours to support student needs and partner with other departments to provide engagement opportunities for students.  Also, the RLC provides night time duty coverage to provide after-hours support for emergency situations and is directly connected to resources after business hours.

Be Responsible

The cleanliness of the residence hall largely depends on the residents and is critical to maintaining a safe, healthy and secure environment. Individual room cleaning is the responsibility of the resident. A trash room is located in the community for proper disposal of trash and residents can obtain trash bags from the Front Desk.
