The community will have a Resident Assistant and multiple Liaisons and Role Models. Additionally, there will be support from the Deaf Studies Program and Housing & Residence Life.
Through the online housing request process there will be an opportunity to complete a special accommodation request.
All rooms are double occupancy with a private bathroom. During the fall semester, tripled rooms are located in this community, so there is a potential for a room with three roommates.
