Ihmsen Hall is the primary freshman residence hall. Its rooms are cozy and comfortable, with attached bathrooms shared between two rooms. Each room also comes equipped with wireless internet access. Kitchen facilities, microwaves, TV lounges and computer rooms are spread throughout the building as well. Ihmsen’s renovation included a new flat roof, new windows, and new exterior brick with added insulation. It also saw the addition of an elevator and air conditioning to the hall, as well as updates to the rooms themselves. All rooms will have new flooring, ceilings, and paint, new shelving units in the closets, new vanities for the sinks, and new bed frames, desks, and dressers. The lounge on the ground floor was enlarged to take up more space on the breezeway, and it will include a larger space for students to study and relax, as well as several quiet study rooms and much more.
Ihmsen features a variety of room configurations, and students may expect to receive one to three roommates or suitemates. Tour room showcases a standard double suite with four suites (two students per room). Rooms may vary.
