A dormitory is a place for sleep and you'll be doing much more than sleeping in your residence hall. When students aren't in class or involved in a campus activity, they can probably be found playing video games, meeting with a study group, watching movies or just hanging out in one of our four residence halls highlighted below.
All residence halls are equipped with a laundry room, vending areas and common areas for studying, watching TV and socializing. Most of the facilities are also equipped with a kitchenette for meal or snack preparation and some may include a computer lab for student use.
