Typical Bedroom Dimensions: Room dimensions vary according to specific location, but 90% of the rooms are L shaped with the main area (containing the beds and desks) measuring about 10' x 10' and the long strip (containing the wardrobe cabinets, TV cube and open storage area) is about 5' x 10'. Some rooms are slightly larger.

  • Typically, there are 4’ of aisle space between the beds. A standard 3' x 5' rug easily fits and a 5' x 8' rug fits when the edges are under the beds.
  • Two metal frame beds, 36” wide x 80" long with 12 1/4" clearance underneath. Reinforced plastic risers are the only permitted method to increase the clearance (by about 6 inches). These beds accept only "twin-long" sheets.
  • Two wardrobe cabinets, 36” wide x 24” deep x 72” high. The bottom portion of the unit contains 2 drawers (36" wide x 24" deep). Wardrobe cabinets are equipped with a “hasp” that allows students to lock the wardrobes (but not drawers) with their own padlock.
  • Two desks, 36” wide x 27” deep x 30” high. All desks have a retractable keyboard and mouse surface with rear storage.
  • One window, variable in size according to floor. 1st floor windows are 66 1/2" wide x 65" high. 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor windows are 26 1/2" wide x 65" high. 5th and 6th floor windows are 26 1/2" wide x 54" high. All windows are covered by 2" plantation blinds.
