Using a one-plug system, this unit does not monopolize your outlets and provides plenty of storage space for your snacks and drinks.

Microwaves and freezers cannot be used in residence hall rooms unless purchased through this vendor as part of a microfridge unit. Individual refrigerators are also available.

Room Bedding

Requests can be made now

OCM offers brand new, first quality, and custom sheets to make your shopping for college essentials easier and more affordable. This service provides properly sized sheets for you to personalize your room up until graduation. Students can save up to 30% when buying OCM's bedding value packs vs. buying items individually.

Bed Lofts & Preconfigured Height Adjustments

Bed lofts provide approximately four to five feet of additional space under your bed, which allows for extra storage or a nook for your desk. Students placed into temporary triples for the fall semester should not rent a loft, as one will be provided. This service is unavailable for Cassell Hall, Frequency Apartments and Nebraska Apartments. Students cannot bring or build their own loft.

Lofts are $250 for the academic year. Order through the AU Housing Portal under Bed Lofts on the portal menu.

Laundry Facilities

Laundry facilities are located in each residence hall and students can pay for laundry using EagleBucks. Additionally, the Speed Queen mobile app allows students to check the availability of washers and dryers in a specific laundry room, pay for a washer or dryer from their phone, and receive updates when their laundry is complete.
