Dorm Specifics

You may have bicycles on campus; storage must be arranged with your R.D.


The walls in the dorm (except Sailor) are cement block so in order to hang things you must use special 3-pronged hooks. These may be purchased at a hardware store. *The walls in Sailor are drywall with metal studs as well as cement blocks.


Students using a community bathroom (all Oakwood and Shupe 101-111) may wish to bring a container for carrying personal items to the shower.


Beds in Oakwood are extra-long. Regular-sized fitted sheets are too small for these beds. Lofts are not allowed to be built in any residence.


Rooms in Shupe, Oakwood and Sailor Hall are not carpeted. You may bring your own carpeting if you would like; however, it must be removed during the summer.

  • Vacuum cleaners are not provided.
  • If you bring your own carpet, you also need to bring a vacuum.
