Suites provide a unique opportunity for you to live closely with people from all over the world, from all areas of study, and at different levels of study. You will be placed in a suite with one or two other students, and you may make friend requests.
We have a limited number of private rooms, which include a three-piece bathroom, double bed, desk, dresser/wardrobe, microwave, and mini-fridge. These are great for single students who want their own private space on campus.
If you like to cook, you will have access to the kitchen on the fifth floor of the Grad Building, or you may opt to get a meal plan or declining balance card. Of course, you have access to all the amenities in the Building as well.
