Thermostat/Temperature Control

Temperature is determined by campus facilities based on the time of year. The individual thermostats in each suite indicate temperature but do not control individual rooms. Submit a maintenance request if you wish to request a change in temperature.


Every hall has washers and dryers that can be paid for using quarters or using the Speed Queen Mobile App. Students must report all maintenance concerns directly by calling 1-800-927-9274 or by visiting Caldwell and Gregory. Every machine is labeled with a unique number, so just provide the location (hall), floor, and the machine number.


The length of time it takes for you to receive a package depends on the carrier.  Some carriers, such as UPS, deliver to a central location on campus. Packages are then sorted and transported to individual halls within 2-3 business days.  Other carriers, such as Amazon, deliver directly to each hall, reducing the length of time it takes for packages to arrive in-hall and be processed by front desk staff.  Residents may pick up packages during front desk hours.  Mailboxes have combination codes and are assigned to suites rather than individual students. Stop by the front desk if you have forgotten your combination.
