  • Bed, desk, dresser, and hanging space for each student (no linens provided)
  • A private bathroom with tub/shower for each room (no towels provided)
  • Cable television hook-up
  • Wireless internet access
    • Air Conditioning and Heat

    • Full kitchen located on the second floor. The kitchen and dining area has multiple work stations, and pots/pans and dishes/silverware are all provided at no cost.
