Each floor of our residence halls also offers community hang out space, where you can hang out with your friends without having to sequester yourself in your room! Play video games on one of the provided communal televisions, set up board games or host study groups in one of our comfortable seating areas, or just hang out and unwind from a long day of classes!
Bobcat Villas-South has one laundry room on the first floor; Bobcat Villas-West has one laundry room on the second floor and another on the third floor. Students do have to provide their own laundry detergent, etc., but will not be charged to use the equipment.
Don’t have time to hang out with your laundry while it is cycling? Set up alerts on your phone and the machine will let you know when your laundry is done. Don’t miss studying in the comfort of your room or one of the study labs because those towels just won’t dry!
Living-learning environments are part of residence life at Bobcat Villas and add to the overall success of students who live on campus. Each community is unique and special, and students are encouraged to explore and take advantage of the support and services offered in these communities.
