Housing services

Housing assignments are based on disability related needs, not requests or preferences. Not all residence halls are designed to meet the needs of students in the same way. If a student’s first choice for a residence hall is not designed to meet the disability related needs of the student, the student may be assigned to another residence hall where that accommodation can be made.

Library services

In November, 1962 the school’s new library opened as a two-story, one-wing building on Elmwood Avenue. At a cost of just over $1.5 million, It was the most expensive building built on campus to date. Moving out of its forty-four year home on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Dempsey Hall, the library was named in honor of the school’s longest serving leader, Forrest R. Polk.
