Each residence hall has a lounge equipped with a large-screen television, lounge furniture, and tables and chairs for games, studying, or small group meetings. Students should treat these common areas—and the rights of all others using the lounges—with respect and care.

Each residence hall has a laundry room with washers and dryers for student use. The machines are coinless, and there is no charge to residential students to use them. Since the cost of operating the machines is built into the housing fee, students living off campus are prohibited from using the washers and dryers in the residence halls. Students should not leave their laundry unattended, as the college assumes no responsibility for any personal items missing from the laundry facilities.

Kitchens in Pick/Herndon, Angell, Rosenthal, and Hudson Halls are available for student use to prepare personal meals or to practice culinary arts skills. Typically they are open from 9 a.m. to midnight seven days a week, except when special events are in progress. Hours of operation are posted and are subject to change. The kitchens are equipped with appliances. Students are responsible for supplying their own ingredients, utensils, and other small equipment that may be needed. Students must clean up the kitchen area after use. Students also must clearly label all personal food items that they store in the kitchen refrigerators. Unlabeled food, or food items that appear to be improperly stored or are becoming rancid, are subject to disposal without notice by Residence Life staff. Residents of lodges and townhouses have common kitchens subject to the same rules of use and cleanup. The lodge kitchens close at midnight. Kitchen privileges, or the privilege to visit or reside in college housing, may be revoked if the college determines that a student has abused the existing kitchen privileges.
