What to Bring


The Housing Office recognizes that students may desire to personalize their rooms. We encourage and support room personalization efforts.

It is recommended that you talk with your roommate and discuss what the two of you would like to accomplish before you begin. Please keep in mind that you must leave the room in the same condition it was in when you moved in at the beginning of the semester.

Student rooms will be inspected prior to move-in, at semester breaks, announced safety checks and at move-out.

It is expected you will read the Residence Hall Handbook for specifics regarding living on campus.

 

Walls, Doors, and Ceilings


Although you are encouraged to decorate your room, do not write or paint on the walls of your room or the interior or exterior of your room door. A charge will be assessed for any cleanup required. Do not use glow-in-the-dark stickers, chalk, glue, or tape on walls, ceilings, or doors. They are extremely difficult to remove and there can be expensive charges to remove them. Do not write on the walls with ANY materials. Any necessary cleanup and/or damage will result in charges. Since brick is porous, chalk is very hard to remove and there will be extensive cleanup charges. Tampering with and/or covering smoke detector is prohibited. Placing any obstruction along the base of the door is also prohibited. When discovered disciplinary action and/or fines are possible. We encourage students to look into non-permanent devices such as poster putty and command strips to display personal items.

Furnishings, Bunks, Lofts, and Other Alterations


Students are responsible for the College furnishings provided in their rooms. All rooms are furnished with a Extra Long Twin bed, dresser, closet, desk and chair. The beds in your room can be configured as bunks if desired if available. These beds may be bunked or un-bunked, please contact the Housing staff for the proper equipment. All furniture provided in your room must remain in the room you are assigned at all times.

Due to weight restrictions and possible damage from puncture, water-filled furniture (i.e. water beds) are not permitted. Portable air conditioners and evaporative coolers are not allowed in any hall due to electrical restrictions. Check with the Director of Housing and Student Life or Hall Director prior to move-in to ensure an item you would like to add to the room is acceptable. The Director of Housing and Student Life or Hall Director has final authorization of acceptable items.
Residents must provide their own bedding, towels and personal articles. Furnishings designed for use in public areas are not to be moved into students’ rooms. Failure to follow the Furnishings Policy may result in charges to replace/repair damages.
