The Office of Residential Life cannot guarantee that a student will receive an air-conditioned room if a doctor’s note is not provided to health services. Additional fees do apply for air-conditioned rooms.
:: Cable and Internet – Wireless and plug-in Ethernet internet, as well as basic cable service is provided in every room of the residence halls.

The hall programs may be educational in nature, designed to build community, or support service opportunities. Hall events give the residents an opportunity to meet and connect with the other students on their floor and in their building.
