On-Campus Housing

Many students choose to live on campus because it is hassle-free. You don’t have to arrange for a telephone line, cable TV, utilities, garbage collection, or lawn mowing – all are included in the price. Visit University Housing-Summer for more information.

Red Cedar Hall, Stout’s new suite-style building, offers more of an “apartment” feeling to it. Opened in the fall of 2005, Red Cedar Hall offers four-person suites that have single bedrooms, a living room, kitchenette and private bath room facilities. The kitchenettes offer a full-size refrigerator, microwave, sink and cabinets. Rooms are equipped with a bed, dresser, desk, bookcase, cable TV connection and local phone service. Full kitchens, including a stove, cook-top, refrigerator, sink, pizza and ovens are located on every floor. A compact laundry room can also be found on each floor. The lower level of the building has a game/TV room and some small meeting rooms. Red Cedar Hall is served by two elevators and is completely air conditioned. The weekly cost to stay in Red Cedar Hall is $60 for suite rooms.
