Residential Buildings

There are 9 residential buildings that are designated as On Campus: All the Way, Half Way, Happy Valley, Hendricks, Howland East, Howland West, Random North, Random South & Schrader. These buildings consist of single, double, and triple rooms. All residences have shared all gender bathrooms (unless otherwise noted by a Charter created by the residents). Howland, All the Way, Hendricks, and Random South all have kitchens. Most buildings have common rooms, furnished with couches, chairs and tables. Each room has a desk, chair, twin bed, and dresser available for each occupant of the room. There is one wall mounted light per room (bringing a lamp is strongly encouraged). There is no storage space outside of one’s room, and window sizes vary from hall to hall. Each building is supervised by a Resident Assistant. Students residing in these buildings must all be on the full Meal Plans.

Out of the Way contains four suites with two doubles and a shared kitchen & bathroom and one suite with a single and a double and shared kitchen and bathroom. There are 6 Cottages, each containing four single rooms and shared kitchen, bath, and living room. There are two Cabins with one single and one double bedroom, shared kitchen, living room, and bath.
