Rafters is a staffed social lounge that is a great place to hang out, meet people, study, and attend events. Check out the programming boards in the lobby for more information.


Need something fixed? We can help! If you require any type of maintenance in your room, please fill out a maintenance request form online through your Residence Portal. This form authorizes our maintenance staff to enter your room during regular working hours to repair the damages or fix any issues that you have outlined on your form.

This request may take a few days to respond to, so we ask you to be patient. If it is an emergency, we ask that you alert our staff to the situation immediately. Please note that if you are at fault, you will be billed for any and/or all damage to the suite or townhouse you are living in.

Housekeeping services help maintain the common areas of the residence and are not available in the individual suites or townhouses.
