Housing


Connect Learning to Life

From the day you move into your residence hall, you’ll feel at home. Hanging out with your roommate. Studying with a group of friends. Sharing opinions in late-night debates. There are so many opportunities to grow. Socially. Intellectually. Spiritually.

Most of our students live on campus (with limited exceptions). You’ll find support from our professional staff and student resident advisors (RAs) who oversee the residential areas. Feel safe and comfortable in our inviting and close-knit community.

Choose the living arrangement that’s best for you. We offer coed, single-gender or honors housing. We have residence halls and apartments. Each has a distinct character and atmosphere. You may want to try a different option each year.

You can find your place here.

Residence Halls

Your residence hall or apartment is more than just a place to sleep and study. You’ll have fun with friends. Encounter new perspectives. Discover yourself.

Here’s what you’ll find in your room:

  • Extra-long, twin-sized bunk beds (mattress size 36"x80")
  • Desks and chairs
  • Closet or wardrobe
  • Chest of drawers
  • Dresser with mirror
  • Venetian blinds
  • Overhead light
  • Cable TV hookup
  • Wireless internet access
  • Smoke detector
  • Storage space (limited)
  • Recycle bin

To install a purchased or home-built loft in the room, please read the loft guidelines below.

Loft Guidelines

To insure that lofts are safe and in compliance with safety and fire codes, the following regulations must be followed:

  • Your loft should be constructed from non-pressure treated wood (pressure treated or chemically treated wood is designed for outdoor use only and can create serious health hazards in an enclosed environment).
  • Loft must be free standing and self-supported, which means they may not be attached to wall, floor or ceiling or supported by any College furniture.
  • The sleeping surface (top of the mattress) can be no higher than 6 feet in height.
  • Lofts should be no more than 40 inches wide and 84 inches long (please note that the College provided mattress is 36"x80").
  • Lofts may not obstruct the functioning of windows or interfere with access to any part of the room for routine maintenance.
  • Lofts may not be used in conjunction with the College provided bed ends. Students are responsible for storage of the College bed ends in their room.
  • Lofts should have means of safe access (i.e. ladder).
  • Electrical wiring, fixtures or appliances may not be attached or incorporated into the sleeping surface.
  • Occupants of rooms where a loft is located agree to hold the College harmless and acknowledge that the College is not responsible for any accident, injury or damage to the occupants of the room, guest or personal property as a result of construction, design, installation or presence of the loft.

It is strongly suggested that before building/designing your loft, that you see your room. For this reason, it is better to try out the College provided furniture first and then decide if you want a loft. If you build your loft ahead of time, please be prepared to make adjustments to the loft upon your arrival to campus.

Each residence hall or apartment has:

  • Laundry rooms with coin-free washers and dryers
  • Vending machines (except for Stone Village)
  • Television/recreation lounges (except for Stone Village)
  • Study lounges (except for Stone Village)
  • Heating and air conditioning or ceiling fans
  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Single, double, triple and/or quad rooms (Single rooms are reserved for upperclassmen and those with special housing needs.)

All residential buildings are air conditioned. In Strickler Apartments and the Cottages, window air conditioning units are provided only in common areas. Students with a diagnosed medical condition requiring the use of an air conditioner may have a window unit installed in their bedroom in these buildings. An Air Conditioner Request Form, which includes information from the student’s doctor, is required prior to a student's arrival on campus.
