Rooms in Harnwell, Harrison and Rodin College Houses are furnished. Each resident is supplied with a bed, desk and chair, and a dresser. Additional room furnishings vary depending on the type of room but can include a twin, extra -long (36"x80") and wall mounted bookshelves. For those who prefer a private bathroom or cooking facilities within their own suites, the high rises are ideal.

In all of the College Houses, safety is of the utmost importance. Residents and conference guests have their questions answered by an Information Center Specialist 24 hours a day and security staff is stationed at the entrances around the clock. House Managers and a full complement of housekeeping and maintenance staff are available in case of an emergency. Visitors are welcome, but they must be signed in by residents.
