Paxton HallPaxton Hall provides housing for upperclass students It is located on the northeast side of campus and is a short walk to most academic buildings.

Formerly a motel, there are 16 rooms on the first level and 16 rooms on the second level of Paxton Hall; two Residence Life student staff members (a Residence Coordinator and a Community Advisor) live in Paxton Hall; one in the only apartment which is located on the second level, the other on the first level.  Paxton houses 64 upperclass students with two students in each suite except room 33, which houses three students.

Each room in Paxton Hall has dedicated heating and air conditioning and tiled floors. Each room contains one bathroom that accommodates one person at a time, therefore each bathroom is gender-neutral.  Each room also has at least one window with blinds, a bookshelf, and mirror (attached to the dresser). 

Each student is provided with an extra-long bunkable bed (38 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches), a desk and chair, a dresser, and closet space.  The beds have two lower height settings: the lowest setting has approximately 12 inches between the floor and the bottom of the bed; the other setting provides approximately 18 inches between the floor and the bottom of the bed. Students may also loft or bunk their beds by acquiring the additional pieces necessary to do so. These pieces will be available in your building common space during the first several weeks of the fall semester.
