checkLaundry detergent for cold-water wash (the cost for using the laundry rooms is included as part of your room cost)

checkMicrowave Ovens - One per room

checkClothes hangers (each room has two closets)

Furniture: Each student will have their own bed and dresser. There are two desks and chairs in each room. If you are in a triple room, you may want to share a desk to conserve on space. If you want a third desk, please request one from your Residence Hall Director. There are also window blinds and a lighting fixture in the room.

Bathrooms: Three bedrooms are clustered around a bathroom so your bath will be right outside the door of your room, not down the hall.

Laundry Rooms: Laundry rooms are on the first floor in each wing. If you are located on the second or third floor, you will need to go downstairs to do your laundry. In this case, laundry baskets or bags may be helpful.

Some Other Items to Consider…



checkRefrigerator (1.7 cubic ft.) --- two roommates may share a 3.4 cubic foot refrigerator, otherwise, all other refrigerators are not allowed. Energy Star efficient refrigerators are preferred but are not mandatory.

Internet Service: All residence hall rooms have Wi-Fi internet service.
