rooke hall (1994)

Are you ready for the transition from college housing to independent living? Living in Rooke allows this to be a gentle transition. Students live in apartment style abodes of four or five person units. Each apartment has a living room, dining area, bathroom, and kitchen. While students must have a meal plan they have the freedom to experience cooking for themselves, as well as clean up afterwards. Our upperclass students really enjoy life in Rooke and the new challenges it brings.

Features: Rooke Hall houses students in single-sex and co-ed apartments of four or five people each. Every apartment has single and double bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen area. Housing in Rooke is determined through an application and interview process. The hall tends to house juniors and seniors. No first-year students live in Rooke.

Staffing: Rooke is staffed by a Resident Director and two Resident Assistants. Rooke Hall Apartment Agreement
