General Information

  • The walls in the Residence Hall are cement block, so hanging items on the walls is extremely difficult because no nails or screws may be used.
  • Bed size is twin.
  • Extended Basic Cable and Network Internet is available at no additional cost. Phone service is available at an additional cost. Wireless Internet is available in the lobby area.
  • Rooms are not carpeted. You may bring your own rug/carpeting if you would like; however, it must be removed at the end of the year. All carpet must have a padded backing, no exposed woven jute as this damages the floor tiles.
  • You may have bicycles on campus; bike racks are available throughout campus. However, bikes may not be brought into the building and no winter storage is provided.
