The Band, Honor Guard and Chorus was one of the first organized cadet groups on campus followed by the Drill Team, even predating Athletics at the Academy. The Honor Guard served in the Academy's observances of morning colors prior to the band addition in May of 1945. The Band, Honor Guard and Drill Team functioned as three separate units until March of 2007 when 7th Company was established.

Student services

The mission of the Academic Resource Center is to improve student success by providing academic resources and support services to the campus community, addressing individual and institutional needs through collaborative, student-centered programming designed to foster academic and personal achievement.

Housing services

Pretty much everyone is aware that Massachusetts Maritime Academy is a fast rising star in the college popularity arena. In a campus surrounded by salt water and neighborhoods, it is sometimes tricky to find a place to house a growing student body.

The housing issue is compounded by the need to send the training ship, usually home to up to 50 seniors, out for maintenance and dry dock on a regular basis and the possibility of the USTS Kennedy being federally activated during a time of national crisis.  Happily, Academy personnel are on their toes and prepared for such contingencies.  The Kennedy was called into service after hurricane Irma in September.

Library services

MMA Faculty, staff and students may return library materials when you return to campus in the fall. Place returned materials in the book drop located at the end of the main service desk in the ABS.       

Medical services

Our Mission is to support MMA cadets with timely and high quality health care.  We provide direct medical care, health education and the promotion of well being.  Students are encouraged to engage in their own health and wellness as part of their personal and academic growth.
