Traditional Residence Hall
Room rates for students in residence halls managed by Campus Living & Learning are generally determined by the type of bath. There are three bath types in the residence halls: community, suite/cove, and private.
A community bath is one where students leave their room to access the bathroom and share with other students on the same floor. Community baths are largely available in our first year residence halls (BIG 5).
A suite/cove bath is generally located between two-four rooms and is used by four-nine residents (or fewer) who live in close proximity to each other. Suite and cove baths are largely available in Alexander, Memorial, Allen, and Dawson Halls.
A private bath is one that is for the private use of only those students occupying the room. There are very few private baths, and they are usually reserved by upper-division students or students with special housing accomodation needs.
Traditional Residence Hall rates generally apply to the following halls: Alexander, Allen, Collins, Dawson, Kokernot, Martin, Memorial, North Russell, Penland, and South Russell.
A single room designates a room occupied by only one student, with furnishings for only one student.
A double room describes a room occupied by two residents with furnishings for two students.
A triple room describes a room occupied by three residents with furnishings for three students.
A temporary room describes a room not typically utilized for student housing. Occupancy ranges from four to six residents, depending on the size of the living space. Temporary rooms are provided fully-furnished and students assigned to these spaces are charged the commmunity bath rate.
Students assigned to single rooms in traditional residence halls (except North Village, Brooks College, and Brooks Flats) are charged the single housing rate without regard to the type of bath.
Students who are assigned a double room but do not have a roommate may opt to secure their double room as a single. The rate for this option is 1.5 times the current double rate and will appear on a student's account as an additional charge equal to one-half their current room charge. This option is only available to students after the beginning of a semester.
This special rate is available only as space allows and by direction of the Assistant Director for Administrative Services. The start date and deadline to request a Double-as-a-Single is communicated via email to students' email accounts.
A student who opts not to pay the additional charge to secure the room as a single should be prepared to receive a new roommate at any time during the semester. Historically, residence halls are at highest capacity during the fall semester.
