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.
The RHA fee serves multiple purposes. $7.30 goes to fund all the activities of the Residence Hall Association (RHA) and the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH). These student leadership organizations provide programming, conference attendance, and leadership development opportunities to our on-campus residents. $5.00 goes to support safety and security in the residence halls. These funds assist the Office of Residence Life in expanding keycard access to exterior doors of residence halls, installing cameras at residence hall entrances, and maintaining that equipment. $2.70 funds the programming provided by the Resident Assistants (RAs) in each of our residence halls. This money supports community development and educational programming provided throughout the residence halls during the year.
The technology fee is used to support the technology needs of each of the residence halls. This money supports the wireless and LAN networks in the student rooms, lounges, and throughout the residence halls. Funds are used to maintain and upgrade equipment, pay licensing or renewal fees, and maintain the software available to students within the residence halls.
The cable TV fee supports the offering of cable TV service throughout the residence halls. Over 150 cable channels are provided in every student room, most residence hall lounges, and some common areas throughout our residence halls. This fee also helps maintain the equipment and lines to provide this service in the residence halls.
