You can come to Jewell knowing all rooms have a bed (with an extra long, twin mattress), 4-6 drawer dresser, desk, chair, wardrobe or closet space and Internet access for each resident. Students supply their own bed linens, including pillows. In each residence hall, you will find lounge areas with a large TV, a kitchen and/or microwave/refrigerator access, laundry facilities and vending machines for those late night study sessions. Our staff operates an office in each hall that provides a myriad of checkout services (games, movies, etc.). You will find our staff friendly, helpful and willing to serve you—the resident.
For planning purposes, please know Jewell prohibits the following items in student rooms: hot plates, toasters (all kinds), coffee makers, or anything with an exposed heating element.

Just e-mail the Residence Life Staff, and we will let you know!
