How to Access Student Services

Bookstore

The Marian University Bookstore fully supports learning regardless of where it takes place. Due to health concerns, the bookstore is closed to the public until further notice. Staff are still present on site during our new temporary reduced hours to process your online orders and help you via phone or email.

Temporary Reduced Hours: Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Counseling and Consultation Services

Counseling and Consultation services are available virtually. Call (317) 955-6150 to schedule an appointment.

Dining Services

Our partners at Aramark continue to work closely with us to assess and modify customer-facing services in order to provide a safe environment. Because of the continued concern for the health and safety of the community, all retail locations closed March 17, 2020. The Dining Commons is open for takeout service for the few students remaining on campus.

Fitness Center and Weight Room

The fitness center will be closed until further notice.

Hackelmeier Memorial Library

As a COVID-19 health precaution, the Marian University Library is closed until further notice. No overdue fees will be charged. Library staff are available to assist you online via chat, individual research appointments, and email. 

Librarians are available to help faculty locate supplemental course materials and make them available to students online. The Librarians are also eager to support faculty and students online, via chat, WebEx research consultation appointments, and email. Visit http://libguides.marian.edu/mulibrary to connect with us.

The library is pulling together extra resources to support online teaching and learning. These include both open resources and limited-time free resources provided by our vendors, and we will update the list as we are made aware of more materials. Visit http://libguides.marian.edu/mulibrary and look for the box on the bottom right, "Online resources for teaching and learning."

Librarians are still filling interlibrary loan requests as we are able, factoring in closures and service disruptions at other universities.

Peer Tutoring

All Tutoring services and Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are now exclusively online. There are no face-to-face, in-person tutoring sessions being offered. MU students can book appointments through our website: marian.edu/tutoring

After booking an appointment, students should receive confirmation and a web link provided by the tutor for the session. The virtual appointment will use an online tool (GoBoard.com) and will require a working webcam and microphone. GoBoard is web-based and at no point should a student need to download any software. Students or MU faculty and staff who have questions can reach out to mcheng@marian.edu or adwenger@marian.edu.

Residence Halls

  • Most residential students (Doyle Hall, Clare Hall, University Hall, Drew Hall) returned to their permanent residences as of March 20, 2020.
  • Check out dates for students who still have belongings in their residence hall will be determined as the situation evolves. Look for an email from Dean Karen Candlish with more information.

Speaking Studio

The Speaking Studio is still here to help you harness your strengths through this challenging time. Currently, we are only offering online appointments via Webex. You can schedule an appointment with one of our consultants at muspeakingstudio.setmore.com. Once you make an appointment, your consultant will contact you via email with more details about how to connect to their virtual conference room. Please email us at speakingstudio@marian.edu with questions or concerns, and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates, tips, and tricks as we navigate this time together. Be well and speak on.

Student Health Center
