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

Open-style suite layout example
Open suites consist of a cluster of rooms, a common room, and a bathroom. The common room is an open space with no door. The suites consist of residents of the same gender. Though the bathroom and lounge are primarily used by residents of that suite, those spaces are accessible to all residents in the building.

A sample layout showing open suites is pictured to the right.

Closed Suite Style

Closed-style suite layout example
Closed suites consist of a cluster of rooms, a common room, and a bathroom (or bathrooms). Select suites also include a kitchen. The suites are not necessarily all the same gender. The bathroom(s) and common room are intended for exclusive use by residents in that suite and their guests.

A sample layout showing closed suites is pictured to the right.

Common Furnishings

Regardless of the style of housing, the University provides one of each of the following in undergraduate housing:

  • desk
  • desk chair
  • twin bed (with a twin extra long mattress)
  • closet or dresser
  • wastebasket

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.
