    Double Room

    All first-year students live in a double-occupancy room with a roommate. Roommates may be selected upon request or are matched based on lifestyle compatibility. Double rooms include a shared bedroom and private bathroom.

Amenities

A common living space including a large screen television, DVD player, and other activity equipment (ping pong table, foosball table, piano, etc.).

While all students residing on campus have a full meal plan, each hall features a pantry equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, first aid kit, and water purifier. Sunrise and Sunset halls feature induction stoves and cookware.

All halls have multiple washers and dryers, including ecologically-friendly, high-efficiency machines. Laundry is included in the cost of room and board, so there is no need to save up quarters or use debit cards. Laundry is essentially “free.”

The upper floors of the halls feature a common space equipped with Wi-Fi and comfortable chairs and couches. Living rooms are a gathering space, frequently used for study groups, programs, or simply relaxing.

These rooms contain stationary exercise bicycles, elliptical machines, and televisions.

The multifaith rooms were founded by Soka students as a way to support diversity in the halls. Multifaith rooms offer a place for students to practice their faith individually or study religion in small groups.
