Front Desk & Mail Area

At the front desk, you can use your Warrior ID to check-out kitchen equipment, board games, DVDs, basic tools, jumper cables, and more.

This is also the area where you’ll check in yourself or guests who plan to stay in your room overnight. Please stay up-to-date on housing policies to ensure you aren’t in violation.

You can pick up any packages you receive that can’t fit inside your mailbox behind the front desk. You’ll get an email notifying you that you have a package waiting for pickup. 

Another essential near the front desk is a printer that you can use to print your homework assignments, study notes, or lecture slides from class.


In the basement of Richards Hall, you’ll find the laundry facility where you can do your laundry for free. 

The laundry room has 4 washers and 4 dryers.

Don’t forget your detergent and dryer sheets! 


The second, third, and fourth floors and the basement have full kitchens for your cooking ventures.  

The kitchen facilities are equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and sink.  

You can check-out any kitchen equipment you don’t bring during move-in at the front desk of the building. 

Tables, couches, TV, and games in Richard's Hall lounge.


There’s a main lounge located in the basement of Richards Hall. 

Host study sessions at any one of the several tables and chairs. Or if you need a break from doing homework, play a game of billiards on the pool table. 

Or find your sweet spot on the comfy chairs and couches and watch a movie on the wall-mounted TV alongside others. 

Resident Assistants (RAs) also tend to host fun floor and building events in this main lounge, so keep an eye on when events will be held here. 

Outdoor Courtyard

Located in the center of Richards Hall, Conway Hall, and Morey-Shepard halls is an outdoor courtyard great for who love being outside. 

Practice your serves and spikes at the volleyball sand court or complete your class readings on the benches. 

You can also check-out and play outdoor games on the lawn by visiting the front desk and using your Warrior ID.

24/7 Security & Controlled Door Access

To maintain your safety on campus, only students who live in the building can use their Warrior IDs to enter the complex. 

That means students living in other residence halls or guests must have a resident accompany and escort them to and from the building when visiting.
