Residence Halls

Potomac State College Residence Halls

There are six residence halls on campus that provide several different housing options.

All residence hall rooms are supplied with beds, mattresses, desks, chairs, chests, and closets. The rooms also are wired with high speed Internet, cable TV, local telephone service, and air-conditioning. All traditional halls have centrally located shower / toilet facilities on each floor. University Place is comprised of suite style living with shared baths between rooms, while Catamount Place offers a variety of living options.

Furniture may be rearranged within your room but is not permitted to be removed from the room. Under no circumstances may furniture be stored outside the room in the hallway or in the lounge.

All rooms are cleaned prior to resident move in in August and our housekeeping staff provides cleaning services throughout the school year. Other maintenance needs should be reported to your RA or RHC. If you decide to personalize your room, it must be returned to its original condition before moving from the room or you will be billed for the work that is done to return the room to its original condition.
