Room Descriptions - We hope this will help you in filling out your Room Request form!

Please remember that we assign rooms in the order we received your application and fee.  All of our rooms are great, so even if you have the most recent application date you will still get a great room!  We ask that you pretend you have the oldest date when filling out your room request form because you never know how the puzzle will fall into place! 

Through the breezeway beyond The Apartments is Grant House, which houses twenty-seven residents in nineteen single, double and triple occupancy rooms.  Grant House, previously known as “New House”, was totally remodeled in 1998 and now has mostly private baths.  It has a living room and den where residents can study or watch TV.  Although Grant House residents enjoy our full meal plan, there is a dining room and full kitchen for the residents’ use.  A computer room, laundry room and exercise room are also conveniently located on the first of two floors.  An outside courtyard has been a haven for studying in nice weather and a great place to relax outdoors, with its overhead fan and patio furniture.  The rooms that begin with a “1” are on the first floor and the ones beginning with a “2” are on the 2nd floor.
