Towers South

Effective for August 2019, Towers South will be all single-occupancy rooms!  South offers students a living environment that is an ideal mix of new and returning students. The community-style living in Towers South 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 South ensures a high level of involvement with other members of the community.

Each floor can house 18 students, including the Resident Assistant. Each floor has a separate shower area. A separate room has private toilet facilities. Each student room has a sink, which students find very convenient! There is a lounge with comfortable furniture, a microwave, and a television on each floor.
