Lamp Post

Lamp Post

Located on the corner of Carlisle and Stevens streets (across from the Eisenhower House Admissions Office), Lamp Post is a 2-story building that houses up to 29 students in 12 double rooms and five single rooms. A Community Advisor lives in one of the single rooms.

Lamp Post includes a full kitchen and common space on the first floor. There are three bathrooms in this facility, two on the first floor and one on the second floor. All bathrooms accommodate more than one person at a time and are single gender (male or female).

Each student is provided with an extra-long bed (39 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches), a desk and chair; a dresser and closet space. The beds have three notches on each bed end to adjust the height of the bed. The first notch is approximately 13 inches off the floor; the second (middle) notch is approximately 18 inches off the floor; the third notch is approximately 23 inches off the floor. Students may also loft or bunk their beds by acquiring the additional pieces necessary to do so. Lofting the bed allows for furniture such as the dresser, desk, and desk chair to slide underneath the bed. The additional pieces to loft/bunk your bed will be available in your building common space during the first several weeks of the fall semester. During the rest of the year, the pieces can be requested by submitting a Facilities Helpdesk request.
