Within the residence halls, we offer lifestyle and programming living
options. These options have been developed in response to residents’
requests in conjunction with the Residence Hall Association (RHA). Residents interested in proposing a new living option should contact their RHA representative.
A grid outlining the various living options and which halls house them is available here.
Quiet communities All residence halls observe a
basic set of quiet hours that are in force Sunday-Thursday, 10 p.m. to 9
a.m. and Friday-Saturday, midnight to 9 a.m. Quiet communities follow a
slightly more stringent quiet policy than the general residence hall
policy: Sunday-Thursday, 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. and Friday-Saturday, 11 p.m.
to 10 a.m. Residents assigned to a quiet community are required to
sign a specialty living agreement when they arrive on campus.
Eco Hall Located in Knutzen Hall, residents seek
new and innovative ways to live in an environmentally friendly manner.
Residents have the opportunity to focus on environmental issues and
concerns that face our community-locally and globally. New in 2004,
solar panels have been added to the roof of Knutzen Hall.
Language Hall In Baldwin Hall, students have the
opportunity to participate in social and cultural activities aimed at
fostering Spanish and French language skills and cultural interests.
Intercultural Program Located in Pray-Sims Hall,
this specialty living community provides programming that enhances
relationships between American and international residents, creating a
unique learning experience.
Wellness Emphasis Program Residents of this hall
have the opportunity to pursue their personal wellness goals. Through
programming, facilities, and a supportive environment of staff and
peers, residents are encouraged to create and continue a balanced,
Alcohol-Free Living Community “Alcohol-free” is
defined as an area where neither residents nor their guests (regardless
of age) are allowed to possess or consume alcohol. In addition,
residents and guests must refrain from being present on the house with
alcohol in their bodies. As with other living options, residents are
required to sign a specialty living agreement. Alcohol-free communities
are located on the first and second floors of Burroughs Hall; the third
floor of Pray-Sims Hall; and the third and fourth floors of May Roach
University Break Accommodations If you desire
accommodations during university breaks (Thanksgiving, winter, and
spring breaks), this option is for you. Break housing accommodations
are available to all hall residents, but those living in one of the
break halls (Baldwin, Hyer, Knutzen, May Roach, Pray-Sims, Smith, Suites@201, and Thomson halls) will be able to stay in their regular room during break
periods (individuals must pre-register). There is an additional fee for
break housing whether you live in a break hall or not (except for Hyer
Hall and Suites@201).
Hyer Hall Located just south of the campus’ Old
Main Building, Hyer Hall offers single room, quiet hall accommodations
with a less structured environment. Residents of Hyer Hall, all of whom
must be 21 years of age prior to the start of the fall semester, do not
need to participate in a meal plan and may occupy their rooms during
break periods at no additional charge. (Winter break occupancy requires
a contract for spring AND fall semesters.)
Suites@201 Offering apartment-style living to
residents who have graduated from high school two or more years prior to
residency, the Suites@201 are the perfect balance between on- and
off-campus life. Each suite is fully furnished and has a full kitchen,
bathroom, living room and four private bedrooms.
