ABOUT THE DORMS:
We have two dorm buildings labeled “BOY’S DORM” and “GIRL’S DORM”. Refer to the Campus map to see where they are located. The floor plans with room numbers can be found in the lobby of each dorm building. During the summer, adult students are not separated by gender and you may find yourself in either building. Please DO NOT SWITCH rooms. The work of assigning rooms is very complex and any change will have a “domino effect” causing enormous confusion and extensive paperwork.
The dorms have 2 bathrooms on each floor. Each room has at least one window, a bed, desk with chair, dresser & closet for each occupant. There is one overhead light, but no desk or reading lamps. Each bed has a pillow, sheets (mixed blend) & one blanket. One bath towel per person is provided (not to be used at the pool).
Each Dorm Building has a small kitchen with electric tea kettle, microwave oven and a household size refrigerator. When using the fridge please mark your food with your name and be sure to clean out everything upon departure.
There are coin-operated washing machines and dryers in each dorm building. Please bring a supply of quarters.
(By order of the Fire Marshall None of the dorms or dorm rooms can be locked. Please keep this in mind when deciding what to bring with you.)
