*Other Details
Bedding: All halls have extra-long twin (80”) beds.
Make sure you bring sheets, bedspreads or blankets, and a pillow.
Hanging Room Décor: 3M strips may be useful for one or two months, but have shown to leave damages in our residence halls in the past when used for a full semester. We suggest using blue painter’s tape for lightweight items. Flat-screen television sets cannot be anchored to the wall.
Internet: Each residence hall room provides connection to the residence hall computer network. This network gives you access to the Internet and e-mail. Questions may be directed to the IT Help Desk at 904-256-7200.
Room Fresheners: To have the best living environment possible, we recognize that each person may have different levels of tolerance for smells in a room. “Scentsy” and other type room fresheners are permitted. Please note that these should have approval from all roommates before use. If there is not roommate approval, then they are not permitted for use. Please note that candles and incense are not permitted.
Additional Information for University Village Apartments Only
