All rooms are equipped with cable. Residents have to provide a coaxial cable for the television. Please see the Student Handbook for a list of television stations.
Each room has access to the schools wireless network.
No, each student is responsible for bringing his or her own telephone. However, every student is assigned a telephone number and each resident has his or her own telephone connection jack (Some students in triple spaces may share a telephone number and jack).
The Office of Residential Life sends out room assignments the last week of July.
The Office of Residential Life is not able to accept requests for first-year student housing regarding choice of residence halls or roommates. We want to encourage students to meet as many new people as possible. All first-year students are placed in one of three residence halls, Loftus Hall, Conese Hall, or Rice Hall.
First-year students are unable to change their initial room assignment. For the first two weeks of school there is a housing freeze, which means that no students can move. We use this time to help verify that everyone is here and in their proper buildings. After the two-week period a residence hall director can help a student change rooms.
First-year students typically move in during the final week in August. This year it occurred on Sunday, August 26, 2012. Specific dates and times will be posted when they become available.
There are no official activities for parents scheduled for Move-In weekend. We encourage parents to come back for Parents Weekend.
Students are allowed low-wattage appliances (hair dryers, shavers, radios, etc). Students are prohibited from bringing hot plates, toaster ovens, resistance coils and grills and George Foreman Grills. For more information on this topic we strongly encourage you to review the Residential Life section in the Student Handbook.
Yes. A meal plan is included for all students residing in housing.
It really depends where you live. Students are allowed to bring a fridge to campus if they would like. However, there are large refrigerators in Conese and South Halls in the kitchenette area. Students are not allowed to bring microwaves to the residence halls, although they are allowed at the Eastchester Apartments. Microwaves are provided on the floors in Loftus Hall and Rice Hall, and there is one in each kitchenette in Conese and South Halls.
Room dimensions and other room information can be on our web page under the building area.
No, freshmen residential students are not allowed to have cars on campus.
Each resident is given a mailbox when they check into their residence hall. Any mail or package that is too large for the mailbox can be picked up in the mailroom. The mailroom will place a notice in your mailbox that you have a package, so it is important to check your mailbox daily.
