Visitations at Marcy

You can visit an inmate at Marcy every weekend and holiday from 8:30 a.m. till 3:00 p.m.  To see an inmate, you need to arrive at the prison no later than 2:30 p.m. on the day of your visit.

If the inmate is located in the 'SHU' (pronounced 'shoe') the Special Housing Unit, note that this inmate can only have one (1) non-legal visit in any 7-day period. The visiting hours for the 'SHU' are the same as listed above.

A maximum number of 3 adults and two lap-children are allowed at visits, and all visiting parties are subject to search upon entering the prison.

Here is a visit checklist that all visitors are encouraged to read before visiting the prison;

  1. Prior to visiting, confirm that the inmate you are planning on visiting has visitation privileges.
  2. Bring valid photo ID.
  3. Check your clothing and jewelry. A copy of the Marcy dress code can be found here.
  4. Arrive on the designated day well in advance of your scheduled time for visiting
  5. Inmates are not allowed to take anything from the visiting room, so don't try to give them anything during your visit as it will be confiscated.
