Paxton Hall

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. A Residential Education student staff member (a Residence Coordinator) lives in Paxton Hall in the only apartment which is located on the second 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 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.
