Most singles are approximately 10' x 12' and have little room for additional furniture. All assigned furniture must remain in the room. Since double and triples are larger, limited space for some extra furniture may be available. It is recommended that extra furniture not be purchased until after moving in. Each room has curtains or blinds, bed, closet or wardrobe, desk, chair and bookshelf over the desk. Most rooms have sinks. Rooms in Anselm Hall (men), have air-conditioning.
