Campus Life

Housing (Granville-Grossman Residential Commons)

Granville-Grossman Residential Commons opened in the Autumn 2009 and features modern design while maintaining the traditional focus of the Houses. The Hall houses eight vibrant communities around two courtyards, defining two distinct residence hall communities (East and West), each with their own complement of Resident Heads and Resident Assitants, charged with community building. The Hall has two Resident Dean couples, (one for each side) who act as intellectual stewards for the residents.

Students will live in the single rooms. All rooms share a common floor bathroom; each floor is accessible by elevator. All rooms are fully furnished with an extra-long twin bed, desk and chair, dresser, book shelves, and wireless internet.

Dining

Students will use Maroon Dollars for on-campus dinning. Maroon Dollars allow students, faculty, and staff to use their University IDs like a debit card at any dining hall and most cafés and markets on campus. The program fees already include $600 Maroon Dollars for students to freely use during the program period. You can always add more money into your Maroon Dollars account once you start the program. All Maroon Dollars are not refundable.
