Each hall has been fully renovated and features moveable furniture, high-speed internet access, cable TV, a kitchen on each floor, study and TV lounges, vending machines, laundry facilities, community rooms, and resident mailboxes. Trained Hall Staff create dynamic opportunities specific to your floor and residence hall to provide a premier living/learning experience that ensures student success.

Each residence hall is equipped with a front desk staffed around the clock to provide residents with the best customer service and security. Residents can use their Big Red Card to check out games from the front desk. Brooms and mops are also available to check out.
