Lounges & Common Areas

Lounges and other common areas are living spaces intended for residents to study, relax, and gather. Use of these areas should be inclusive and yield to other residents in the space; if conflicts arise, staff can assist in facilitating a resolution.

Furniture may be rearranged to accommodate activities, but must be returned to its proper location afterwards. Please note that personal property left in lounges or common areas may result in theft. Overnight sleeping is not permitted.

Residents wishing to organize activities for their community can contact their Resident Advisor or Resident Director. The cleaning and re-setting of a common area is the responsibility of those using the area. Priority for use of common areas:

  • Staff initiated or sponsored programs
  • Hall Council or community activities
  • Resident use for academic purposes
  • Resident use for social or recreational purposes
