Although rooms in Whitmyre Hall vary considerably in size, the average double room is 15’0” x 12’0” with a window measuring 3’8” x 4’5” (w x h). The walls throughout the building are plaster with a height of nearly eight feet. All rooms are equipped with
built-in dressers, closets, desks, desk chairs, and bunkable beds. Two waste cans (one for recyclables and the other for regular trash) are also provided. The standard bunk bed arrangement is 18” from the floor to the top of the lower mattress and
57” from the floor to the top of the upper mattress; this arrangement allows approximately eight inches of clearance under the lower mattress. The window has a pull-down shade. In most rooms, only the two standard sized bunkable beds can be moved
since other furniture is permanently fixed. Residents may have lofts, but they must be sturdy, well-braced, and of solid construction. Each closet has a clothing rod; some have hooks and some do not while some are moveable and some are affixed to
the walls. Lighting is provided via overhead lighting
Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms; however, university-owned furniture cannot be removed from the room. Pictures and posters can be hung using poster putty only. Nails, bolts, tacks, glue, or other adhesives cannot be used to affix materials
to the walls.
