Dorm Fees Fall 2014:

$2,443 Standard Room
$2,734 Premium Room
$500 Security Deposit Required

The dormitory rooms are located on the campus grounds surrounding the beautiful main courtyard area and are only a few short steps from the classroom building. The dorms are located in five different buildings and on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors.

The walls are made of plaster and we ask that no nail holes or other penetrations be made to the walls. Damage to walls could result in forfeiture of your security deposit. There is a fabric material on a designated wall in the room. Please use this surface when hanging or tacking things on the wall.

A duplex electrical outlet next to the bed has one side connected to a switch adjacent to the entry door. The other is not switched and would be used where continuous power is needed for a clock, radio, etc.

Under the bookshelf that is above the desk, there is a fluorescent task light for illuminating the surface of the desk. On the wall under the desk there is an outlet for a telephone.

The desk has a specially designed drawer for a computer keyboard and all shelving has a grommet for running wires vertically.

Each room has a ceiling fan and an overhead light, each of which is operated separately. These are on a motion sensor that automatically shuts the lights and fan off when the room is unoccupied. The motion sensor should be kept in the on position. The motion sensor device is located next to the front door.

There is a thermostat in each room to control a comfortable setting for heating and cooling. The college is on a controlled heating and cooling system. If the temperature falls below 56 degrees as a outdoor temperature, only the heat will work. When outside temperatures are at 58 degrees or higher, only air conditioning is available.

With the exception of four rooms designed for students with special medical needs, all rooms share a bathroom with an adjoining room. There is a soap dish in the shower for each student and the vanity has several drawers to serve each student. A dead bolt lock is on the room side of each bathroom to secure each room individually. When you are not in the bathroom, you should keep this door locked. It is also considerate to knock before entering this shared facility.

While an attempt was made to standardize each room you will see subtle differences in layout and size. Placement into another specific dorm room may be requested in writing and may be accommodated on a first come first serve basis. Changes in room assignments are subject to a room change fee in addition to a possible increase of dormitory room fees if changing to a super dorm.

ROOM INFORMATION

Each room is furnished with built-in furniture. Single room furnishings include: Desk, bookcase, chair, dresser and ceiling fan. Most students prefer to bring their own bed, however, if needed, a twin size bed can be provided upon request.

The Super Single rooms include: A full size bed, desk, bookcase, chair, dresser, ceiling fan, love seat sofa, coffee table, end table, lamp, dinette table with two chairs, micro-fridge, and microwave. The windows are covered with vertical blinds. All rooms have central heat/air and most are carpeted.

APPLIANCES

Stereos, televisions, microwave ovens, small refrigerators, VCR's, hair dryers, clocks, iron and ironing board and personal computers are among the items permitted. The following types of appliances are NOT permitted: hot plates, electric skillets, crock pots, fryers and any other cooking appliances. Cooking in dorm rooms is limited to that which can be accomplished in a microwave oven.

TELEPHONE SERVICE

Telephone jacks are installed in each room. Establishing telephone service is the responsibility of the student. For service call Verizon at 1-800-483-4000. Telephone service can be ordered but cannot be installed until your arrival on campus.

CABLE SERVICE and INTERNET SERVICE

Each dormitory room is cable ready. Establishing cable service is the responsibility of the student. Cable service cannot be established until your arrival on campus. For service call Bright House Networks at 727-329-5020 or Larry the Cable Guy at 727-224-3220.

All Stetson dorms are outfitted with a network port for the "StetsonGuest" network. However, if you would like to connect to the internet wirelessly while in your dorm, you will need to purchase a personal wireless router. You must connect the internet or WAN port on this router directly to the network port on the wall.

When you establish a wireless network, be sure to name it after your dorm room number (such as ‘B101' or ‘F310'). In addition, your wireless network must be WPA2-PSK compliant; in other words, you must protect your wireless network with a password. If your wireless network is not WPA2-PSK compliant, or poses other security threats, Stetson reserves the right to disable the network port in your dorm room in its continued effort to protect the network.

Lastly, be sure you are using N 5GHz range for your wireless network when possible as it will improve your wireless signal.

Please keep in mind that, although Stetson allows use of personal wireless routers in dorms, we do not offer any technical support for them; you should contact your device manufacturer directly for assistance.

FOOD SERVICE

Ice machines are located in two locations near the dormitory buildings and vending machines are located in the Student Center Student Lounge area and outside the main entrance to the café. The campus cafeteria, JD's Café is located off of the main lobby entrance, close to the A building dorm wing. Café hours vary and will be posted each semester. There are also many restaurants and grocery stores in walking distance to campus.

MAILING ADDRESS

Each student is assigned a university mailbox with a combination lock. These mailboxes are located in the main lobby of the campus. This box number is your official Stetson United States mailing address and will be retained by you as long as you are a dormitory resident. Mail should be addressed as follows:

Stetson University College of Law
1401 61st Street South - Box #
St. Petersburg, Florida 33707

Do not include your room number. Your U.S. mail box number and the combination will be provided to you by the Office of Residential Life.

Upon moving out of the dorms, your U.S. mail can not be forwarded through the postal service. It is the students responsibility to contact all agents who send mail to your on-campus mailbox address and advise them independently of your new forwarding address.

PETS

Pets are strictly prohibited in the dormitory. Exceptions to this are limited to a service animal utilized by a disabled individual in accordance with Florida Statute 413.08.

LAUNDRY

There are laundry facilities located in the corridor area beside the stairwell for dormitory building A. These are coin operated machines. Change is available from the Business Office during normal business hours. The laundry facility is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For the courtesy of all dorm residents, please be sure to empty the dryer lent traps after each use and report any broken equipment to Facilities Management via the online work-order system on the Intranet.

PERSONAL PROPERTY
Your room should remain locked at all times. We assume no risk of loss for your personal property. For the protection of your personal property, it is suggested that you purchase renters insurance. Brochures on this information may be obtained from the Office of Residential Life.

THINGS TO BRING

Each resident is responsible for providing his/her own pillow, bed linens, mattress pad, blankets, bath mats, area rug, towels, etc. Note: If you choose not to bring your own bed, a twin size bed will be provided upon request.

The following are suggested items that may be helpful as you prepare to move into the residence hall: Disposable dishes, alarm clock, iron and ironing board, waste basket, laundry basket, hangers, hair dryer, etc.

Absolutely no fire arms, weapons or other hazardous material are permitted in the dorm rooms.

CLEANING SUPPLY CLOSETS

These closets contain various cleaning supplies including a vacuum cleaner, broom, mop and mop bucket for use in your dorm room. Closets are located on the first of A building dorm and on the second and third floors of F building dorms. Keys to the closets are issued by the Office of Residential Life or the Office of Student Life. If after hours or on weekends, a key may be obtained from the Library Circulation Desk staff. You must leave your student ID with the person who issues you a key to the closet.

SMOKING

Absolutely no smoking is permitted in the dormitories or under the covered walk ways surrounding the dormitories.

MAINTENANCE

If you require a repair to your room, please notify the Maintenance Department by submitting an online work request form which can be obtained via the Intranet at https://intranet.law.stetson.edu/Facilities/.
