Where will I live?
Southwestern's student housing apartments are located in the west edge of campus along the shore of beautiful Empire Lake. Just over a walking bridge is Empire Hall, home to the dining hall, student government, game room, TV lounge, meeting rooms and the Performing Arts Center.
The units have private and shared bedrooms, two shared bathrooms and a shared living room, kitchen, dining room, balcony or patio and four chairs, a sofa and love seat, two end tables and a coffee table. Kitchens have a full-size stove and refrigerator.
Each bedroom features an 80 inch twin bed and mattress, desk, chair, dresser and closet with shelves. Bed lofting kits and extra dressers are available for an additional fee per term. You receive local telephone service with your own number, a mailbox, Internet access and satellite TV service. These amenities and your utilities are all included in the basic room rate.
Should I live in Student Housing?
Each out-of-district freshman student attending Southwestern is required to live in student housing unless: he or she has dependents living with him/her, is a veteran, or is 21 years of age or older prior to the first day of class.
How safe is Southwestern?
Very safe -- Southwestern is located in a rural area with a low crime rate. For added safety, Campus Security officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day.
When and where can I eat?
Southwestern's food service provider serves three schedule meals per day Monday through Friday in the Empire Hall cafeteria, and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. If you live in student housing, a minimum meal plan is included in the cost of student housing. Other meal plan options are available.
