Room Layouts Explained

Traditional halls are defined as a residential community primarily comprised of single or double occupancy rooms where the residents share large community bathroom facilities. It gives many opportunities for students to meet people while brushing your teeth! Bathrooms are serviced and cleaned by our housekeeping staff. The buildings are co-ed, but single-sex by floor.

Double with bathroom
This is a double occupancy room with a private bathroom. Residents are responsible for cleaning their own bathroom and living spaces.

Our apartments include shared spaces of a living room, kitchen, and two bathrooms along with four single occupancy bedrooms. Residents are responsible for all regular cleaning of all apartment spaces throughout their housing contract. Each apartment has a four person capacity.

Theme House
Our theme houses include shared kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and basements. Rooms in the houses are singles or doubles. Residents are responsible for providing all cleaning supplies and regular cleaning of all house spaces throughout the year. The six houses differ in size, but will hold between 4-7 residents that share interest in a common house theme.
