Dorm Information

Dormatory & Classroom

Your housing

You will be staying on campus in a dorm setting and assigned to a room with one or more roommates. We trust you will settle in comfortably and want you to consider your dorm room a ‘home away from home’. All rooms during the first two terms have a beautiful lake view, and all rooms have access to bathrooms and showers. Rooms are furnished with a twin sized bed, wardrobe or shelves, and a hanging space. During summer term you will transition into summer staff housing that may vary as to storage space and the number of roommates.  As you prepare, please be advised that storage space is limited.
