HRL will provide internet-based TV content to common rooms along with a TV for the enjoyment of the community.
Each residential space is equipped with furniture by HRL. The resident(s) of a room/ apartment will be charged for any damaged furniture and/or furniture missing from their space. University-owned furniture must remain in the student’s room. Personally owned furniture may be added to student rooms/apartments provided all residents of that room/ apartment consent and the residents remove the furniture at the end of occupancy.
