Important Resident Student Information
- All resident students are required to be on the board plan.
- Traditional freshman, sophomore, and junior students are required to live on campus. Those who live within a 30-minute commuting zone of the College may live and commute from their permanent address.
- All residence halls are smoke-free. Students can smoke outside in designated areas.
- Laundry facilities are available for student use. BRING QUARTERS!!
- All residence hall rooms are wired for cable TV and wireless Internet access. Wireless Internet and Local network access is available via an Ethernet cable.
- Parking is available. Permits are $40 and available through our Security Department.
- Student ID cards are photo ID cards that all students are required to carry in order to gain access to their assigned residence hall, utilize their meal plan, check out books in the library and attend college events.
- All resident students are issued a physical room key for their individual living areas. Students are responsible to carry their room keys with them at all times.
- Room assignments are based on the date of housing deposit; therefore, students are encouraged to pay their housing deposit as early as possible. After April 1st, housing is awarded based on availability.
- Roommate matching is not an exact science. Residence Life staff try to match incoming students based on similar interests and the information submitted on their housing preference forms. The rest is up to the students to appreciate each other’s differences and to communicate effectively if problems arise.
- Roommate requests will be honored only if the requests are mutual; all attempts will be made to place students according to their preferences.
- Single rooms are extremely limited and will be assigned on a space available basis, primarily for documented medical needs. Students may indicate on their housing application form that they are interested in a single room, but they must also select a regular room option. The additional cost of a single room is $500 per semester.
- Resident students are required to pay a Housing and Damage Deposit of $125. The deposit is in addition to tuition and room/board charges and will be refunded to the student if there are no damage charges to the room or residence hall.
