CIA Residence Halls: Facilities

By Ronnie Genee, Director for Residence Life

The first thing most new students want to know is what their residence hall room will look like. You may want to start off by reading my post, CIA Residence Halls: What to Bring.

Kitchen in the Lodges. Want to see what the facilities in your dorm look like? Visit our virtual tour.

So once I leave my room, what will I find in my residence hall? Let’s talk about that. Every hall has a:

Kitchen—You’ll have a meal plan and spend a lot of time in classroom kitchens, but many students enjoy cooking and baking their own food. We’re a culinary school, after all!

  • Hours: 9 a.m.–12 a.m. every day
  • Equipped with:
    • 2 Viking Stoves/Ovens 
    • Microwave Oven
    • Counter Space
    • Sinks
    • Communal Fridge
  • What you won’t find (and you may want to bring with you):
    • Pots & Pans
    • Utensils
    • Dishes
    • Foil & Plastic Wrap
    • Sponges
    • Pot Holders
    • Cutting Boards

Laundry Room—Want your chef whites to stay clean and bright? We do, too. That’s why our laundry facilities are free. Yes, FREE. Bring your own high efficiency laundry detergent. And if you’ve never done laundry before, we’re sure your parents will let you start practicing now.

  • Hours: 24/7

Computer Lab—Yes, there’s one in every hall. So, whether or not you choose to bring a printer to campus, you’ve got no excuse for not writing that paper. (And you will write papers, not just cook!)

  • Hours: 24/7
  • What you won’t find:
    • Printers—The only student-use printer is located in the Conrad Hilton Library.

We also have another great resource I should mention: Resident Assistant Offices. Each hall has several resident assistants, who are students who work in our residence halls to assist all the residents. They share an office located on the main level of every building. In these offices you can find garbage bags, toilet paper, cleaning supplies (such as mops and brooms), as well as fun items like board games.
