On-Campus Living for Freshmen

Thayer Hall is a 10-story traditional residence hall that accommodates 188 freshmen on the third through eighth floors.  Five of the floors are coed, and one is for females only. Rooms are available for two or three people.

Each floor has two community bathrooms, one for women and one for men, and a laundry room (FYI: community bathrooms means you share the facilities and have to keep them neat, but you don’t have to clean them!).

A wireless study lounge is located on the second floor.

How is my room outfitted?

In Thayer Hall, each room has its own heating and air conditioning unit.  You’re wired, too, with one Ethernet connection per person and one cable jack in each room (all free as part of your housing contract).

Furniture includes (per person):

  • twin bed
  • desk
  • chair
  • dresser
  • closet 

You are welcome to bring things to make your space your own.Here's a list of some things you can bring (and some things you cannot bring).
