New Housing Options
New construction will provide 604 suite beds featuring semi-private rooms, family amenities and gathering areas for each group of 8 students, and a shared commons area with kitchen, lounge area and exterior patio for living communities of 42 students. This community-based structure will provide unique options to integrate freshmen into campus culture, support healthy relationship development with peers, and allow housing staff to effectively engage with individual students.
Our new residential suites located near Aswell residence hall and along the alumni walkway and Adams Boulevard will be called Aswell commons collectively and named: Aswell A, B, and C. These suites will open Fall 2018. Our suites along California Ave and Adams Boulevard and closest to Dudley hall will be called Dudley commons collectively and named: Dudley A, B, C, D, and E. Dudley commons' suites will be ready for occupancy in the Fall 0f 2018. Dudley A is designated as our Honors House - a student must have selected interested during their housing application and qualify for the honors program to be able to select a room in this location. Each resident will share a room with a roommate. Each room will have all modular furniture including a twin loft bed, desk and chair, chest, and wardrobe per resident. Each room will also have its own bathroom. Either a resident assistant or a hall director will live and work within the community. The first floor of each suite location is dynamic, which means that two female residents may reside next to two male residents, as all residents within the building will share the first floor lounge/kitchen area. The second and third floors of each will be designated either male or female. Residents will only have access to their assigned floor and the first floor for use of the community space. Residential Life is very excited about the possibilities that exist within these freshmen communities! We hope you will want to join us!
