halls varies by location on campus.

Q - Is there storage available for any
excess furniture that I don’t need?
A – Unfortunately, the University does
not have storage available for excess furniture. All
furnishings that are provided at check-in must remain in the room
for the year.
Q – Are the residence halls
A – All halls except for Dossett, Powell, and West are air-conditioned. Window fans are allowed and we have found that they are generally sufficient at keeping students comfortable in those buildings without AC. The cooling season in our region is brief for the period of time that students live in the halls – a few weeks in August/September and a few weeks in April/May – before the heating systems are turned on.
Portable air-conditioners of any kind or window units are not permitted.
Q – Are my personal belongings
insured by the University?
A – The University does not carry insurance on students’ personal property. You are encouraged to check with your family’s insurance agent to see if you are covered under an existing policy or to secure renter’s insurance.
