Themed Housing 

24 Hour Quiet Floor

While all floors have designated quiet hours, residents of a 24 Hour Quiet Floor live in an environment that has the maximum number of study hours. All noise (e.g., television, music, talking) must be maintained at a level agreed upon by quiet floor residents.

This living environment is designed for students who are transgender, gender nonconforming, or who do not identify as a gender, as well as for students who desire to live with a friend or family member of a gender different from themselves.

There are four bathrooms on the floor, designations are two female, one male and one gender inclusive. This community welcomes anyone who is open minded and social justice minded in assisting with creating a welcoming community where everyone feels they belong. This floor is located on the 2nd floor of Killinger Hall.
