Styles and Furnishings
All of our undergraduate housing options fall in to three basic styles of living: traditional, open suite, and closed suite. The descriptions below are meant to provide an idea of the kind of living environment in a particular community. The diagrams are for reference only and are not necessarily representative of the number of rooms in a suite or wing or the number of bathrooms in the community. The diagrams are also not drawn to scale.
Traditional Suite Style
Traditional-style housing consists of a series of rooms and then a common bathroom. The residents are grouped by gender. Social lounges and study space are available in designated places throughout the building.
A sample traditional-style floor is pictured to the right.
Open Suite Style
A sample layout showing open suites is pictured to the right.
Closed Suite Style
A sample layout showing closed suites is pictured to the right.
Regardless of the style of housing, the University provides one of each of the following in undergraduate housing:
- desk chair
- twin bed (with a twin extra long mattress)
- closet or dresser
These are PER OCCUPANT, and so singles would have one of each item, doubles would have two of each, and triples would have three of each.
In double rooms, the beds can be bunked. University policy prohibits lofting.
