Check Out Your New Space
The rooms in each residence hall are furnished with the following:
- Single bed
- Desk and chair
It is the responsibility of the student to supply items such as lamps, comforters, towels, linens (residence hall beds have 80-inch mattresses that require extra-long twin sheets), curtains, pillows, wastebaskets, and other miscellaneous items. Room and window dimensions vary greatly in size throughout each residence hall, so students are encouraged to wait to purchase curtains and carpets until after they have arrived. If a student prefers to purchase a rug prior to arrive on the campus, a 5’x8’ area rug will fit in any of the rooms.
Kitchen areas are available in each residence hall for student use.
