Should I insure my belongings? Yes, definitely!
the College assumes no responsibility for loss, theft or damage
to personal property, even if that loss was caused by the failure
of a College mechanical system such as a pipe bursting. We
strongly encourage you to have insurance coverage before you
begin residency. typically, such coverage may be provided by extension
of a homeowner’s policy, renter’s insurance or insurance specifically for
college students. Many vendors offer low cost insurance specifically
directed to the college environment. two such vendors are:
Student Personal Property Plan (www.nssi.com) and
CSI (www.CollegeStudentInsurance.com).

How do I create more space in my room?
Many students wish to raise the height of their beds to
allow for more storage or living space. our residence
hall beds can be positioned at several different heights*,
creating more storage space and/or greater flexibility for
room configuration. to request that your bed be positioned at a specific
height, visit our website to complete the loftable Furniture Layout
Options Form or Bed Layout Options Form (Scales, Lonis & Moreland Halls
only). Please submit the online form no later than August 3, 2015, to be
certain your room will be ready for you when you arrive. Late requests
will be accepted but cannot be guaranteed.

*the ‘default’ setup below allows for 28" of storage space under the bed.

What size are the rooms?
Although the actual dimensions of rooms vary from building to building,
the average square footage is 185. In order to plan for the set up of your
room, we have provided diagrams and measurements of rooms in each
residence hall below.

• West Campus Halls

Onondaga Hall*
• 600 Residents
• 10 Floors - Suites (Upper-class students only)
• Ceiling Height = 8'
• Window Frame = 51.25" x 63.75" (1st floor)
• Window Frame = 51" x 58" (2nd through 10th floors)

depth = 21"

*onondaga is our “suite style” residence hall. there are primarily 3-room
suites and a few 2-room suites in the building. Suites are unique in that
they have a private bathroom and common living area that only the
suitemates share.

so. the residence hall may require registration of visitor guests at certain
times of the day; otherwise no registration is required. overnight guests
may be hosted by a resident according to registration guidelines.
Registration of overnight guests requires the signature of all other
residents of the room/suite. the host assumes personal responsibility for

Individual halls and living units may extend quiet hours or establish specific
additional quiet hours at their discretion and/or through the Community

Visitation and Guests
Entry into the living quarters of a residence hall is restricted to visitors or

the registration requirements of each residence hall and the resident
host assumes full responsibility for their guest’s/visitor’s behavior. the
presence of such visitors and/or guests shall not deny access to or entry
into the room or suite by any resident thereof, nor shall visitation cause
any undue hardship on any other resident of the room, suite, or building.
(No resident is permitted to have a guest(s) or visitor(s) without the
advance approval of all roommates.) College policy allows 24-hour
visitation but does not permit cohabitation. Each residence hall
government has the option to further restrict such visitation according to
the wishes of the residents.
