Your very first room at college is both an exciting experience but it can also be nerve-racking. The Office of Residential Life and Education aims to help you with your transition and settling into your new room. Our helpful and friendly team of professional staff members and Resident Assistants are on hand to help make your on-campus experience dynamic, safe, and fun!
Most of the rooms in Dominic Hall, Joan of Arc Hall, Alumni Hall, Baroody Hall, and Saint Mary Hall are a standard size of 11' x 14'. Each room comes furnished with beds, built-in storage closets, desks, chairs and a shared dresser (excluding Joan of Arc Hall). All mattresses are extra-long twin in size. Each room also has a data port for high-speed internet access for each resident. Rooms in Joan of Arc Hall also feature a sink and medicine cabinet in each room.
Transforming Your Room into Your Room
Most students will arrive on campus with too much, not too little. Your room already is outfitted with some amenities and furnishings. One of the best best things that you can do prior to arriving on campus check-in is to call your future roommate(s) and discuss the room. Discuss the types of items you wish to bring to campus ahead of time. This can be very helpful in saving you both time and space if you coordinate who will be bringing certain appliances, electronics, and furnishings. Talking about your room before you move in with your roommate(s) will help you to visualize your new room as a space where you and your roommate(s) can be comfortable and happy.
