Double rooms in the residence halls come in two basic shapes (These are approximations. Room sizes, shapes and layouts vary from building to building, even room to room on any given floor):

Rectangular, measuring approximately 17' long by 10' wide. These rooms are generally located in the high-rise sections of the residence halls.

Square, approximately 12' long by 14' wide. These rooms are generally located in the low-rise sections.

Bedding and decor not included.

In addition, there are approximately 120 triple and quad student rooms located throughout the residence halls. These rooms are larger to comfortably accommodate multiple students. Residence rooms no matter their occupancy level are assigned on a random basis.
