The People

Your roommates are really the people you’ll get to know. Building community doesn’t come as naturally as in first-year residence halls, but keep your doors open and attend the programs the Gryphons hold!  This will help you get to know other people in the building and make the most of the Campus Square community!

The Rooms

Campus Square is divided into four parts, A through D. Each building has an elevator, and there are lounges on each floor. There are also washing machines and dryers on every floor, making laundry very convenient.

Rooms in Campus Square are apartment-style, with several single bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and living room. Some room have four bedrooms, while others have two or three. The bedrooms each have a bed, desk with drawers, and a spacious closet with shelves and drawers. These rooms are not as large as those in some of the other buildings, but certainly roomy enough to encompass all of your belongings. Making the rooms seem even bigger is the space provided by the rest of the room. The living room is rather large, with a sofa, chair, coffee table, end tables, and TV stand. A kitchen table and four chairs fit nicely into the space, as well. The kitchen is connected to the living room. There is plenty of cabinet space and appliances include a stove and refrigerator, as well as a sink. Though the rooms do not come with a microwave, there is a good amount of counter space to fit one if desired. Down the hall is a private bathroom for the suite that is cleaned every month. There is a large closet in the hallway, and some shelves across from the bathroom. There is cable in every bedroom as well as the living room. Most of the suite, aside from the bathroom and kitchen, is carpeted.

The Location

Campus Square is conveniently located near the new post office, Johnny’s, and the bookstore, as well as many off campus restaurants and stores. Several class buildings are a close walk, though buildings at the top of campus are a bit of a walk. The bus stop on Packer Ave. is relatively close, making it easy to get to the top of campus and Iacocca. Fair-Mart is close, a short walk back after studying late. The Fud Truck is often parked nearby, and Brodhead dining hall is also close by, making it a good option for students with meal plans.
