All campus apartments, the new residential suites, Columbia and Elwell Halls are air conditioned. A limited number of rooms in our other residence halls have been designated as air conditioned rooms; either with a wall-mounted or window air conditioner. The wall-mounted units will be turned on at the beginning of each semester and will remain on throughout the semester. The window units have been permanently installed to reasonably withstand winter temperatures and will NOT be removed at any time.

All rooms equipped with air conditioning are billed at a higher rate than regular non air conditioned rooms.


Floor model air conditioner

  • For reasons of need or convenience, you may provide your own floor model air-conditioning unit not to exceed 10,000 BTU's with no fee charged by the university. You do not need to submit an AC request form or doctor's note to bring your own floor model unit. Here is an example of a permitted floor model unit. Students may not provide or install their own window air conditioner.
