Towers East


Towers East offers students a living environment that is an ideal mix of new and returning students. The community-style living in Towers East is perfect for new students, and for those returning students who wish to continue to live in a community-style environment. The community-style living in East ensures a high level of involvement with other members of the community. Even numbered floors are double occupancy rooms (2 students per room), while odd numbered floors are single occupancy rooms (1 student per room). Each double occupancy floor can house 35 students, including the Resident Assistant, while each single occupancy floor can house 18 students. There is no Resident Assistant living on the single occupancy floors. Each floor has a separate shower area and a separate room with private toilet facilities. Each student room has a sink in their room, which students find very convenient! There is a lounge with comfortable furniture, a microwave, and a television on each floor.
