Since You Asked...
Each week, the Hawk Herald features a question asked by a member of the Class of 2024. A student leader will share their perspective on your question.
Q1: I saw that residence hall rooms do not include a microwave so my question is are we allowed to bring our own?
A1: Yes! You are allowed to bring your own microwave as long as it contains no more than 700 watts (learn more about student room regulations). I will say that each residence hall does contain one community microwave for all to share in the hall's kitchenette area. Maybe if you think you will be heating numerous meals in a microwave, then I would suggest you having your own microwave in your room so that you never have to wait if someone else is using the one in the kitchenette area. But, if you are someone like me that only needed to heat up popcorn a few times throughout the year, then I would recommend just using the microwave for all to share in your residence hall.

Q2: Do the residence halls have ironing boards available? If not, are we allowed to bring one? Where would we store it?
A2: I brought a mini ironing board and iron to my residence hall! Since my ironing board was small, I was able to fold it up and put it in the back of my closet, and put the iron back in it's box and put it in the top shelf of my closet.

I didn't have an ironing board, but I was able to use a small hand held steamer to do the same thing.
