All students are assigned a 4-digit mailbox with a unique combination to open the box. All mailboxes are in the student’s residence hall. Students will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office at the start of the second week of classes, detailing their unique 4-digit box number and combination. Once the student receives their mailbox number, they should provide that to friends and family to be added to the formal address. When packages arrive on campus, students will receive an email from the College’s Post Office, notifying them that they have a package that needs to be claimed. Students will have to show their student ID card at the Post Office and sign for their package.
There are emergency phones located on most residence hall floors in common areas for student use. 911 and local calls will work on these emergency phones.
All resident students can set up their own computer and connect to the Internet via the College's wireless network from their residence hall rooms.
Residents who live on campus enjoy cable TV service at no additional charge. Campus residents have access to 65 channels, including MTV, ESPN, the major networks, and the campus services network - a video bulletin board which keeps students up to date on campus events.
Laundry facilities are found in the basements of Holy Cross Hall, Esseff Hall, Flood Hall, and Luksic Hall. Alumni and O’Hara Halls have laundry facilities on the second, third and fourth floors. The Alley Center has laundry facilities on the sixth, seventh and eighth floors. Laundry services are included as part of the student's room charges. Students will be able to do laundry only in the building in which they reside. On campus laundry services are not available for use by commuter or off campus students.
Students will need to supply their own twin XL sheets, blankets, towels and any other necessary linens.
Minifridges and several other dorm room amenities are available for rent through Campus Specialties, Inc. (www.mymicrofridge.com).
Although a car is not a necessity for a resident student, students who wish to have a car on campus may do so by registering their vehicle with the Office of Campus Security and Safety and purchasing a parking decal. The Office of Campus Security and Safety is located in rooms 107 and 108 in Alumni Hall.
