Area and Front Desks

Area Desks provide staff support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Located at 560 Lincoln, Allison, Sargent, and Willard, the desks are a hub of activity for residential students. Residents can obtain temporary keys if they are locked out, submit requests to fix broken keys, complete room changes and express check-outs, rent various amenities (vacuums, sports equipment, etc.), and ask general questions to a Residential Services employee or Community Service Officer (CSO). The person working the desk can also connect you to personnel serving on duty for emergency situations.
