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
get to know each other and something about each other´s interests and habits as quickly
