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.
All Gender Restroom Floors All gender restrooms are located on the second floor of Steiner Hall, Smith Hall, and Watson Hall. Restrooms allow for anyone to use them and contain toilets, showers, and sinks.
Quiet communities All residence halls observe a
basic set of quiet hours that are enforced 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.
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 floor with
alcohol in their bodies. As with other living options, residents are
required to sign a specialty living agreement.
Gender-inclusive accommodations are available in various formats on campus.
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.) Hyer Hall will be closed for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Suites@201 Offering apartment-style living to
residents who have graduated from high school one 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.
