Will I be able to have a refrigerator or microwave?
Yes, as long as they meet the guidelines in the 2014/2015 Housing Contract.
Will I be able to have a window air conditioner?
No, however each room has an individual control for heat and air conditioning.
Will there be on-site laundry?
Will there be kitchen facilities?
No. We are excited about One Tribe Place and College staff have been working to ensure the facility meets all current fire safety codes. Although the building had been used for decades as a hotel once it converted to a new use as a dormitory new and different building codes had to be met. Before we can add kitchens our Facilities Planning, Design, and Construction department will need to determine electrical, water and sewer requirements; fire protection changes; range exhaust requirements; replacement of flooring; and door fire rating. There are strict building code requirements for kitchens so it is much more than just buying appliances. Over time, we plan to install kitchens, but not in the near future. Residents are permitted to bring microwaves and refrigerators that comply with the Housing Agreement.
