Each room has a phone line and phones are available on a limited basis. Each residence hall has a lounge with cable TV and coin-operated laundry facilities. A linen service is available by request for an additional charge.


We have many different sizes and styles of classrooms available to suit your every need. Whether it be a small classroom with a simple white board, a large lecture hall with a big projection screen and sound system, or our Fine Arts Building, we have the perfect space for your group. We also have our athletic facilities available during certain times throughout the summer.
