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—an upperclass student trained to provide living and learning support.
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 makes student housing at Knox especially conducive to community-building. The second and third floors are coed by floor, with the fourth floor coed by room. Depending on the year, the basement may house upper-class or first-year students.
The Conger/Neal is all female and forms the east corner of the old quad. 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
Furrow Hall has two sides. Furrow East shares a stairwell with Sherwin. Furrow West shares a stairwell with Elder. Each floor is a cluster of three rooms with a bathroom. Each suite in Furrow is connected with RA in either Sherwin/Neifert or Campbell/Elder. the two wings of Furrow Hall offer spacious rooms in arrangements of three. Depending on the year, Furrow may house upper-class or first-year students.
Post Hall is broken into two wings. Wing one, suites 1-6 are upper-class, while wing two, suites 7-10, are first-year. Two suites are all female and two will house the Living-Learning Communities. Post lobby is a communal lounge with the "C-Store" and Outpost dining. The basement houses upper-class students in single rooms.
Raub/Sellew residence hall is co-ed by floor and forms the south corner of the "Old Quad." The floors are two connected suites, each containing six double-occupancy rooms and a common living area. Raub/Sellew houses upper-class and transfer students.
Seymour Hall is a traditional hallway style dorm for first-year males. The three floors are located above Seymour Union. The Union is home to the Hard Knox Cafe and Gizmo for dining, Founder's 24 hour computer lab, and Taylor Lounge with its game room and big-screen television, games, numerous comfortable seating areas, and tables.
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. The suite system is one of the distinctive features that makes student housing at Knox especially conducive to community building. The building is coed by room. Depending on the year, the basement may house upper-class or first-year students.
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.
