How large is my my residence hall room for freshman students?
What do I need to bring?
How are roommates assigned? When are housing assignments made?
Roommates are matched based on a survey of interests and lifestyle. To choose your roommate, you and your roommate must list each other’s name on your housing applications. Placement letters are sent out by mid-July.
Is it possible to be placed in a single room?
Single rooms are limited and most house upperclassmen students. However, a first-year student with a legitimate need for a single room may inquire about the possibility.
When are visitors allowed?
Visitation is from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day. All overnight guests are limited to three consecutive nights and 15 nights per semester.
May I decorate my room?
Yes! Your room is your home on campus and you should make it feel that way. Some rules apply, though, like only using removable, non-damaging adhesives, like white sticky tac and 3M Command Strips.
Can I bring my own furniture?
Yes, but university furniture must stay in its assigned room. Tower Hall residents are allowed to have approved lofts in which case the university- provided bed can be removed.
