Single Students

Students have the option of sharing a furnished, dorm-style, 2-bedroom apartment in McDowell with three other students. The larger bedroom consists of two sets of bunk beds, dressers, and closet space for four students, and the smaller bedroom has 4 workstations (desks and desk chairs). Living room furniture includes a sofa, chair, coffee table, and end table with lamp. The kitchen comes with a stove, refrigerator, and table with chairs. A washer and dryer are included in the unit.
Shared apartments have “flat rate” rent plans. Under flat rate rent plans, water, sewer, and electric are included in the rent, and rates do not fluctuate when people move in and out. Please see the Flat Rate Statement of Policy for more information about flat rate plans.

*Please note: Students age 30-35 are only eligible to share apartments with other students in that age range. Students age 36 and older may only rent private apartments. Due to significant differences in ages, the administration has set age qualifications for campus housing
