Individuals Traditional Rooms

Traditional Rooms are what most consider a typical college residence hall room.  While these options come with the least amount of personal amenities they are also some of the most economical spaces available.  Traditional Rooms do not have individual kitchens but are equipped with a mini-fridge and microwave.  Mitchell and Potomac have en-suite or adjoined bathrooms while Strong (All Female Greek Housing) has communal floor bathrooms. 

Traditional rooms include:

  • Furnished with a bed, mattress, dresser, desk, chair, and wardrobe or closet
  • Common floor bathrooms or private in-suite bathrooms
  • A microwave and mini-refrigerator
  • Air conditioning
