MCMC is not just a place for studying and living, but nurturing lots of precious moments and experiences of college life. Long-lasting friendship, sociable characters, a good sense of belongingness to the College, self-discipline and determination, and peer relationship, are mostly developed through participation of floor activities. In doing so, MCMC approach to floor management is to leave ample autonomy to residents to decide how they make full use of the living space.
Every floor establishes a floor committee under the leadership of Resident Assistants. Resident Assistants are appointed by the College as a student staff to look after the floor and chair the floor committee. Routines include public hygiene, reporting malfunctions of facilities, mediating conflicts or disputes among members, and organizing floor activities to develop a sense of community.
The floor committee composed of no less than 5 members, who are directly elected by all floor members. The floor committee helps Resident Assistant to look after other floor members, tidying floor management issues, and to grow floor identity through floor activities.
We expect all MCM students are capable to manage their living place as a ‘home from home’. Only minimal rules of floors applied to MCMC, which are:
• Be cautious to safety issues such as using appliances
• No smoking and alcohol or liquour consumption in the College
• Opposite sex is not allowed in the bedroom areas
• Visitors are only allowed in the common areas of the College from 8am to 11pm
• Any incidents and emergent cases should be reported to Resident Assistants, or directly to Resident Fellows when necessary
