Linen Kits
Need help finding extra-long bedding to fit the mattresses in our halls? We can help! The Residence Hall Association has partnered with Residence Hall Linens for several years to provide our students and families with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have sheets that will fit all of the beds on campus. Proceeds from this program are used for programming in the residence halls. There’s free shipping for all Value Pak orders, more than 40 color combinations available, and linens are delivered to your home during the summer for extra convenience.  Please visit the RHL website [here].

Loft Kit Rental Form
A loft allows the residence hall bed to be raised to maximize space in your room.  By lofting the bed, students are able to use the space below for the desk and dresser, thereby increasing living space.  Lofts are provided at the Townhouses and are available for rent in most other halls.

MicroFridge Rental Form
The MicroFridge Unit is a combination compact refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven.  It conveniently holds, stores and prepares all the beverages, frozen foods and microwave products that you regularly enjoy.

Request to Stay Over Break Form
Any residential student who, due to special circumstances, desires to stay in his/her assigned residence hall space during break periods must submit the Request to Stay Over Break Form.  All requests are considered by the Director of Residence Life.  A pro-rated, per night charge will be assessed to the student account if not for official College business.  Note also that students are responsible for all meals during break periods.
