C3 is The College Community Connection. We partner with college offices and local community agencies to provide assistance to students facing non-academic barriers, so they can focus on completing their educational goals.

Our services are available to all MVCC students.

We have a well-stocked food pantry and may be able to provide assistance with daycare, eldercare, and transportation. C3 staff connect students to resources and organizations, both on campus and in the community, for assistance with mental health, domestic violence, employment, healthcare, tax services, and any other barriers or difficulties students may be experiencing.

You can email staff at C3@mvcc.edu, call 315-792-5342 or 315-792-5492 to speak with C3 staff between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can walk in to either office located in the Learning Commons in Wilcox Hall,
Room 141.
For the pantry, if you're a student, you can freely use it; just make sure you sign in. For other C3 services, you need to fill out a couple of forms on C3 Forms page.
On the Utica Campus, you can find the C3 Pantry in the  Learning Commons WH144 in Wilcox Hall. On the Rome Campus, the Campus Cupboard is located in the Library Wing in PC102A.
The pantry is open between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, operating in lockstep with the College's hours, meaning we're open during the winter and summer semesters.
Yes, C3 can work with you to make a plan for emergency housing while something is put in place for long term housing.
C3 can direct you to community resources to alleviate that stress, such as 211 MidYork Human Services.
