What is the difference between the
Psychology Lounge and the Fellows’ Lab?
The psychology lounge is on the 4th floor of Marillac Hall and is
for the entire psychology department. The psychology lounge has
couches and tables for studying, and also mailboxes for all
graduate psychology students. The fellows’ lab is in the
sub-basement of Marillac Hall and only fellows (clinical and
school) have access using their storm cards. Every fellow or
graduate assistant within the psychology department is assigned a
space to work in (with a computer and secure file cabinets).
How do I go about finding
St. John’s offers students a variety of housing opportunities.
Through the Office of Residence Life, graduate students can secure
on-campus housing subject to availability. To be considered for
on-campus housing, students should submit their request in writing
to the Office of Admission. Through the University’s Housing
Service, students can find comfortable and convenient off-campus
housing in surrounding neighborhoods. All inquiries should be
directed to the Department of Student Life at (718) 990-2417. Also,
students often find apartments and/or roommates using
Craigslist.com or other websites that offer housing information in
the area. Flyers from other St. John’s students are also often
displayed on the walls around the campus.
Will I need a laptop computer?
A laptop computer is not required. STJ has several computer labs
and one is located in the School of Education. Many students,
however, do find a laptop computer is convenient and frequently
bring with them to classes. A personal computer is important,
whether it is a laptop or desktop, for completing assignments,
communicating via email, and conducting online research.
