1. Are the apartments and residence hall co-ed?
Yes, the apartments and residence hall accommodate both female and male students.  Individual Residence Hall suites, which consist of two bedrooms with a private bathroom, and apartments, which consist of four or five bedrooms and two bathrooms, are assigned by gender.  That is, all residents assigned to a suite or apartment will be of the same gender.

2. How are roommates assigned?
Mutual requests for specific individuals are honored when possible. Otherwise, roommates are assigned on the basis of information supplied on the residence hall contract. Special consideration is given for a non-smoking roommate. No room assignments are made on the basis of race, color or national origin.

3. How many roommates are in a room?
Most residence hall rooms are double occupancy. However, some are triple occupancy should the need arise.  Apartment bedrooms are single occupancy.

4. What is furnished in each room?
There is a bed, desk, chair, chest of drawers, and closet space for each student. Blinds are also furnished in each room. All rooms are carpeted. 

5. Can I have my own room?
A limited number of single rooms are available in the residence hall on a first-come, first-serve basis. Indication of a request for a single room on the residence hall contract does not guarantee the request will be granted. Students who are granted a single room will be sent confirmation by the Office of Residence Life. All others will be assigned a double room and placed on a single room waiting list. First-year students may inquire as to the availability of apartment living.

6. What if I need special accommodations?
Resident students may request special accommodations if required for a medical or mental health condition. Requests should be made through the Office of Residence Life.

7. Are there hookups in each room for computers?
Yes, all rooms in the residence halls have land line and wireless access for computers.

8. Can I bring a car?
Any student may have a car on-campus. Cars must be registered with the Office of Campus Safety located in the Campus Center, Upper Level. You will receive a parking permit which must be displayed on your car's rearview mirror.

9. Can students have bikes?
Bikes are permitted on campus. They may be parked outside at the bike racks provided. Students are encouraged to use a sturdy bike lock when parking a bike outside.

10. Who cleans the residence hall rooms?
Students are responsible for cleaning their own rooms and bathrooms. College maintenance staff clean the common areas, such as the hallways and lounges. Vacuum equipment is available for student use.

11. Who oversees the day-to-day operations of the residence hall and apartments?
The assistant director of residence life lives on campus and supervises the residence halls and apartments. The residence life director oversees the assistant director and resident assistants (RAs) who interact with students daily.

12. What if a problem arises?
A resident assistant (RA) is available on each floor of the Residence Hall and in each apartment building to assist residents with a variety of concerns. They can also refer residents to appropriate campus offices for help, like the Counseling Center, or other community resources if needed.

13. What if a student gets sick?
During the hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, the Health and Wellness Center can assist with illnesses and minor injuries.  During off-hours, Campus Safety and resident assistants (RAs) are on-site and can readily respond in person should a student emergency arise. Emergency medical services are available within minutes of campus.
