University Housing provides residents with a bed, mattress, desk, chair, chest and wardrobe. All beds are extra long (36”x80”). All furniture provided must remain in the rooms during the year. University Housing does not provide storage for any room furnishings or personal items from residents. Furniture cannot be brought into the halls unless it has heavy felt protection on the base. Please review the Guide to Hall Living available online and handed upon check-in.
Parking around the halls is limited and located around and behind the buildings. Orange parking permits are required to park in the residence hall lots. Students with an Orange parking permit may also park in Brown lots. Students can go online to obtain their permit.
Each residence hall is equipped with washers and dryers that operate on Banana Bucks, which are loaded onto your Gorilla Card. The washing machines can only use liquid laundry cleaning products.
All residence halls have air conditioning deriving from a centralized system serving the entire campus. Air conditioning is seasonal.
Delivery of Information
All students who live in the residence halls are responsible for checking their official campus e-mail address, their assigned hall mailbox or their cell phones for any information from University Housing. Our office also utilizes hall postings frequently to inform all residents on a regular basis of any happenings.
The Kansas Board of Regents requires state universities to establish polices that require all incoming students residing in university housing to be vaccinated for meningitis. All newly enrolled PSU students living in university-owned group housing are required to be vaccinated for meningitis within the past five (5) years. If the vaccination was received greater than 5 years ago, a booster dose will be necessary. In the absence of proof of the meningitis vaccination, an enrollment hold will be applied and the student will be unable to enroll in subsequent semesters.
In addition, Pittsburg State University has recently adopted an immunization compliance policy for ALL new incoming students. For more information regarding the Immunization Compliance Policy; click on the "Immunization Compliance" link on the Bryant Student Health Center website: www.pittstate.edu/health
