Single rooms are 8' wide by 15' long, with at least one window and a large closet. Double rooms are like two single rooms without a wall separating them. Click HERE to view a room diagram.

The bed is a regular twin size, for which we supply a mattress pad, blanket, bedspread and pillow. The other furnishings consist of a bedside table, bookcase, desk with chair, dresser with mirror, occasional chair, and wastebasket. There is an overhead light and a table lamp.

Residents should bring sheets, pillowcases, towels, an alarm clock, and a toiletry caddy to take items to the hall bathroom. Because the floor is tile, you may want to bring a small rug for beside the bed. 

Pictures can be hung on the wall using poster putty or 3M Command adhesive hooks. Residents may bring a television, which will receive the local channels with a digital antenna; however, rooms do not have cable hookup. There is cable TV and a DVD player in the community television room.

Please do not bring any type of kitchen appliance (i.e., refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, hot plate, etc.). Hot and cold drinks are always available in the dining room, and three refrigerators, a freezer, and two microwaves are provided for residents to use.



We have a laundry room with coin-operated washers ($1.00) and dryers ($1.00). Irons and ironing boards are also provided on each floor.

Telephone Service:
We supply a telephone in each room, and residents may set up their voice mailbox to receive messages when they arrive. Local calls are included in the cost of rent, but there is a fee for International and long distance calls. We do not give out telephone extensions before check-in because they are subject to change.

Residents may use our fitness area, which includes a treadmill, an elliptical, several exercise balls, free weights, and a scale. The common use refrigerators and freezers are also located in this room as well as a vending machine and microwave.

The area also features a cable television and stadium style recliners, which are available for resident use. Time slots may be reserved by visiting the Front Desk. The room also features a collection of VHS tapes, DVDs, and board games.
