Our student residence halls offer a dynamic living and learning environment.
First-year students live in suite/floor arrangements with 10–29 of their peers and a resident advisor -- an upperclass student trained to provide living and learning support. The housing selection process is held every spring.
Most first-year students will receive their room assignment and information about their new roommate in July. Transfer students will be housed on August 1.
You will find coin-operated high efficiency washers and dryers in the basement of Sherwin-Neifert, Raub-Sellew, Longden, Conger-Neal, Hamblin, Post, 240 W. Tompkins, 284 W. Tompkins, 251 S. West Street, Williston Hall, and on the second and third floors of Seymour Hall. Residents of Campbell-Elder and Furrow use the washers and dryers in the basement of Sherwin-Neifert. Costs are $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry, so bring your quarters and high efficiency detergent! There are card swipe washer and dryers that use Flex dollars in Sherwin-Neifert, Post, Williston, Longden and the Hamblin Basement.
Cooking is not allowed in student rooms. However, many of our first-year residence halls have kitchens. You will find facilities in the basement of Post and in the basement of Sherwin, which are utilized by all students living in “5-Name” (Campbell-Elder, Furrow and Sherwin-Neifert). Knox encourages students to take advantage of the kitchen facilities, whether it be cooking for yourself or a group of hungry friends.
