Residence Hall Supervision

Residence halls are supervised by Residential Life professional staff and student Resident Assistants (RAs), who help create and maintain an environment conducive to personal growth and academic achievement. The Residential Life staff is available to meet with students on educational, social and personal matters.

Room Assignments

Room assignments are made before the semester begins. The Office of Residential Life tries to honor specific requests for rooms and/or roommates to the extent that physical limitation and residence hall organization permits. There are a limited number of single rooms in the residence halls. Freshmen and Sophomores are required to live on campus and therefore receive priority assignment over upperclassmen.

Furniture and Accessories

Each room is equipped with furniture needed for studying and sleeping (excluding desk lamps). Beds are 80 x 36 inches (twin, extra long) and this should be considered when selecting bed linens. Students are expected to provide their own linens. An alarm clock, study lamp and wastebasket are also recommended. Students may add posters, radios, TVs, computers, etc., as deemed necessary. Laundry facilities are available in each building.

Telephone and Cable Service

Basic cable service is included in the room and board fees. Expanded cable service and premium channels must be arranged separately, as the cable service will bill students directly for this extra service. Phone service is also available upon request. Phone bills are the responsibility of the student. For additional information about telephone and cable service, please contact the Office of Residential Life.

Internet Service

Access to high-speed wireless and wired Internet service is available in every room in the residence halls at no extra charge. This connection is always “on” and any personal computer with a standard Ethernet port (when using wired connection) can connect to it using a standard Ethernet cable (not provided by the college). Students using personal computers on campus are required to use anti-virus software with current virus definitions, and keep operating system patches up-to-date.

Wireless Internet access is also available in the residence halls.

Students must use their Menlo user ID and password to access this service.
