The second design includes 22 single suites featuring four private bedrooms with a shared living room area and bathroom. Residents are expected to maintain a clean bathroom area, provide the cleaning supplies and toiletries needed for their suite.
Same gender suites are located throughout each floor of the residence hall. Students in the Ester G. Maynor Honors College are assigned to Oak Hall and, beginning in Fall 2019, Oak Hall will also house the Leadership Learning Community (LLC).
Visitation for Oak Residence Hall is open visitation. Open visitation implies that restrictions are determined by roommates and suite mates according to each others’ rights and needs. Respect for the wishes and well-being of one’s roommate(s) is more important than someone’s desire to have guests. Students residing in Oak Hall are expected to view their academic responsibilities as their primary goal; therefore, studying takes preference over socializing in student residences. The guidelines for visitation are grounded in the academic schedule and are designed to balance a student’s responsibilities with individual and group needs.
All rooms are furnished with twin beds (80″ x 36″ mattresses), desks, desk chair, closets, dressers, and blinds. The common areas in the suites with single bedrooms are furnished with a sofa, lounge chair, and lamp table. Students are encouraged to bring accessories to personalize their room. Additionally, residence hall rooms have data connectivity and wireless Internet, laundry and vending room access, access to 24-hour per day campus police coverage, and trained professional residence staff ready to assist residents. Oak Hall is equipped with central heating and air conditioning.
