Types of apartments

Double-room and Single-room Apartments: 
Apartments on the second and third floors of the buildings are designed for two to four students. Students may request their own room, but the apartment is still shared with one or two other students in the other bedroom. The student will pay a single-room fee per semester unless they are open to having a roommate assigned to their room. Students sharing a bedroom with a roommate will avoid paying the single-room fee.

Garden Apartments: 
Garden apartments are designed for two persons in single-rooms. They are basement units that share a similar layout with the upper-floor apartments, but they have lower ceilings and thicker exterior walls, making the apartment a little smaller overall. They include a love-seat in place of a sofa, and each bedroom includes only one dresser, desk, and desk chair, rather than 2 of each.
