Our student residence halls offer a dynamic living and learning environment. First-year students live in suite/floor arrangements with 18-30 of their peers and a resident assistant (RA)—an upper class student trained to provide living and learning support. Suites may be all-gender or single-gender, depending on the preferences of first-year students, and men and women are not paired together as roommates in the same room.
Each floor in the Campbell/Elder residence hall consists of two connected suites of six rooms each—4 double-occupancy and 2 singles—that open into a common living area. The suite system is one of the distinctive features that make student housing at Knox especially conducive to community building. Depending on the year, the basement may house returning students or first-year students.
Conger/Neal forms the east corner of the Quads. The floors are two connected suites, each containing six double-occupancy rooms and a common living area. The basement of Conger/Neal is home to the Knox Share Shop!
Post Hall is broken into two wings. Wing one, suites 1-6, houses first-year students and wing two, suites 7-10, houses returning students. Typically, the Living-Learning Communities are housed within wing one of the hall. Post lobby is a communal lounge with the "C-Store" (convenience store) and Outpost dining. The basement houses returning students in single rooms.
Raub/Sellew residence hall forms the south corner of the Quads. The floors are two connected suites, each containing six double-occupancy rooms and a common living area.
Each floor in the Sherwin/Neifert residence hall consists of two connected suites of six rooms each—4 double-occupancy and 2 singles—that open into a common living area.
Cooking is not allowed in student rooms. However, we do have community kitchens in some of our first-year residence halls. You will find a kitchen in the basement of Post and in the basement of Sherwin, which is 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 cooking for yourself or a group of hungry friends.
All bedrooms and lounges come furnished. Each bedroom has a desk, chair, dresser, and twin-XL bed per person. Each lounge has a table with chairs, coffee tables, lamps, couch, and loveseat or chairs. Furniture may not be moved between rooms or in and out of rooms and the lounge common space.
