Ice House Complex

Ice House ComplexThe Ice House is one of 11 apartment-style residence halls for upperclass students. It is located on the south side of campus, just a short walk from most academic buildings.

The Ice House apartment complex houses a total of 100 students in four-, five-, and six-person apartments among three separate buildings (Ice House G, H and I).

All bathrooms in the Ice House apartment complex as described below accommodate one person at a time, therefore each bathroom is gender-neutral.

Ice House G (apartments 201-203) consists of three six-person townhouses. Each of these apartments has three double bedrooms -- one on the first floor, two on the second floor. Each apartment also has a full kitchen, dining area, and living room. There are also two full baths, one on each floor, in each apartment in Ice House G.

Ice House H (apartments 104-108 and 204-308) is an apartment complex with three floors of four-person apartments; there are five apartments on each floor for a total of 15 apartments. Each apartment has two double bedrooms, full kitchen, dining and living room areas, and one full bathroom.

Ice House I (apartments 109-113) consists of two four-person and three five-person townhouses. All townhouses in Ice House I have a full kitchen, a dining area and living room. The four-person apartments have two double bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths, while the five-person apartments have two double bedrooms, one single bedroom, and two full baths.

All apartments in the Ice House complex have a full kitchen (including a full-size refrigerator and range) and the dining area includes a table with chairs. Kitchens are not equipped with microwave ovens, dinnerware or cookware. The living room furniture consists of a sofa, one or two chairs and an end table.

Each bedroom has carpeting and built-in closet space, a desk, a dresser, and an extra-long bed (38 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches) for each resident.

  • ICE HOUSE H (metal bed frames): There is approximately 15 inches between the floor and the bottom of the bed. To gain additional storage space below the bed, students may use bed risers. Students may request the additional pieces necessary to bunk their bed by submitting a Facilities Helpdesk request.
  • ICE HOUSE G AND I (wood bed frames):  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.
