Multi-bedroom Houses and Apartments

Residents assigned to single rooms within multi-bedroom houses and apartments pay an apartment single room rate and will be guaranteed the single room as their place of residence. Residents assigned to single rooms usually have an “S” after their room number, indicating an assignment to the single room. 

Completely private apartments are not currently available - all apartments are shared with at least one other resident. Single and double rooms within an apartment unit are designated as either "double room" or "single room" on the rate sheet, referring to the specific bedroom type within the apartment.
