In order to honor the University’s three year housing guarantee, almost all incoming students reside in either a double room or a converted triple room (traditional double rooms with added furniture to accommodate three students). Students who reside in a converted triple room at the start of the semester will receive a discount of approximately $1000 - $1200 on the cost of their room per semester. A small percentage of students will reside in single rooms or rooms designed to accommodate three or four students and are not eligible for a discount.
Incoming students are assigned to converted triple rooms in reverse date of admission deposit order, beginning with the latest dates of deposit and working backwards. We anticipate that at least half of the incoming class will reside in converted triple rooms.
|Average room specifications for a Converted Triple Room
|Bunk Bed*||Height from floor to bottom bunk = 10"|
|Loft Bed*||Height from floor = 52"|
|Closet||Width = 49"|
|Window||Dimensions = 72" x 52"|
|These are average dimensions for a typical room in Caughlin, McGuire, St. Monica and Katharine Halls. Not all rooms are the same in a particular residence hall. Furniture dimensions may vary according to residence hall. Bed rails and a ladder are standard in each tripled room. Additional ladders are available upon request.
