Why Live in the Halls?
A Completely Furnished Room
Each double room is furnished with two beds and mattresses, two dressers, two desks and chairs, mirror, book shelves, drapes, recycling container, free 100-channel Cable TV access including more than 50 high definition channels, wireless internet and options for wired network access. You are given a great degree of freedom in arranging your room furniture. Bring posters, TV, plants, pictures, a lamp, and your room quickly becomes a home.
Each residence hall offers comfortable study lounges, televisions in common areas, coin-operated (and HawkCard operated) laundry facilities, vending machines, vacuum cleaners, and reception desk service. Pool tables, ping pong tables, games, microwaves, and cooking utensils are also available in several of the residence halls. Each Residence Hall also has it's own computer lab. As you will see - each hall offers a number of advantages and services that will make your stay enjoyable!
Living on campus offers you the opportunity to participate in a multitude of activities, programs, and events right outside your door. By living in our residence halls you'll be just a short walk to classrooms, the University Center, the bookstore, tennis courts, the Andersen Library, the intramural fields, and the recreation center.
Meeting New People
One of the most exciting aspects about living in the halls is the opportunity to meet new people. Chances are that you will learn more about yourself and others by living together. Residence halls provide a perfect forum for finding people with interests similar to your own as well as learning more about people with different lifestyles, beliefs, backgrounds, religions, and interests.
The Staff Cares About You
When you live off campus you need to be concerned about leaky faucets, shoveling the walk, and finding someone who can help you when you're in need of advice. Residence Life provides professional staff members who are trained to meet your needs and to maintain the facilities. We also work all year long to provide orientation and on-going training to our student staff and student leaders. College can be a difficult time; knowing that people care about you can make those challenges more manageable.
