New Residence Hall
The newest traditional residence hall is scheduled to open for the fall of 2018. The hall has not been officially named yet so is listed on the on-line housing application as New Hall. Freshman applicants are able to select it as a choice for the 2018 – 2019 academic term.
This three-story building will house 214 residents and is located conveniently close to Hardy Hall and the outdoor Sports Courts. It is within walking distance to Mayborn Campus Center, the Bawcom Student Union building, and all academic buildings.
This facility includes a large central lobby, study rooms on the 2nd and third floors, computer kiosks throughout the building, and two laundry rooms on each floor. Another great feature unique to this hall is a large common area on the 3rd floor that is equipped with a kitchen area. The kitchen will include a full set of cabinets, a sink, a full size refrigerator, and an oven that students can use to bake.
Resident Assistants are assigned to each floor of the building and the Resident Director lives on-site. Building security includes 24/7 locking of all side and front entrances and card access on the hallway doors that lead to student rooms. Residents access the building and their own floor by scanning in using their ID card. A staff member is also on duty each evening.
- Approximate room dimensions are 13' x 12' (156 Sq. feet). This is the bedroom area only.
- Shared room comes equipped with two twin beds with 80” mattresses (XL twin size), two desks, two desk chairs, and two chest of drawers. There are two closets in the room, one for each resident.
- Beds are junior loft beds, which means they can be adjusted to create extra space beneath the bed. On the highest setting, the approximate space under the bed is 30”, which allows the resident to place the chest of drawers under the bed. Bed lofts are also available to lease through Collegiate Bed Lofts. This is the only company approved for lease of bed lofts by the university. Students cannot build or bring in other bed lofts but can use bed risers, which come in different heights and can raise the bed anywhere from 3” to 8” inches. Collegiate Bed Loft often experiences high volume and availability of loft kits can become limited. It is important to lease your loft kit early.
- Wireless internet in building and two internet jacks per room. Cable and internet service are provided. Find information about the UMHB Channel Guide and Compatible TV Models.
- The private bath has a shower and toilet.
- The single sink vanity area is located outside the bathroom.
- There is 1 window in each room measuring 3' x 4'.
- Walls are sheetrock and the paint color is a neutral tone. Students must check with the hall staff before hanging anything on walls or other surfaces within the room.
- All furnishings are moveable.
