During the academic year a limited number of outdoor outlets are available for rent to

students. Student must provide their own extension cord and only one vehicle should be

plugged into each outlet. The charge for these outlets is $100 for the winter reservations

made at the Business Office.


To protect the general health and safety of residence hall residents, fish are the only type of

pets allowed in any residence hall. Aquariums are limited to 20 gallons in size.


Quiet hours are hours in which the residence halls need to be quiet. One part of living in a

community is respecting the rights and wellbeing of other members of the community. The

following hours are considered Quiet Hours:

Sunday-Thursday (school nights):10:00 PM to 8:00 AM

Friday-Saturday (non-school nights): Midnight to 8:00 AM

If a resident is bothering you by being too loud during these times you should first politely

ask them to be quiet. If they are rude and they do not follow through with the request then

please notify a resident assistant immediately and they will assist with the situation.


The Assistant Director of Residence Life must approve room changes within each residence

hall. The responsibility for working out the details of a resident-initiated change rests with

the residents requesting the change. No moves will be approved within the first two weeks

of each semester.


You can report maintenance related issues with your room to a staff member, and a request

will be submitted to fix the issue. Repairs will begin as soon as possible.

To keep pests out of the room, you should take precautions to store food properly and

practice reasonable housekeeping chores. All food should be kept in a refrigerator or in

airtight containers. All trash, including empty boxes, should be discarded promptly.


A roommate agreement workbook has been developed to assist residence hall students to

live together successfully. Roommates must discuss issues before they become concerns

and revisit the agreement if problems arise during the academic year. The workbook helps

students develop a cooperative living and learning environment that respects the rights and

opinions of each individual in the residence hall community.

On rare occasions, roommate concerns may escalate to a point where people are no longer

able to live together. If that situation occurs, all students involved in the disagreements may

be required to move to other residence hall rooms.

Generally, most people believe you have to like each other and be friends to be roommates.

Although it is nice to be friends with your roommates, it is not required. Many people do not

know their roommate before they move in to their residence hall room. It is important to
