Rooms in McCutcheon Hall are study/sleeping rooms, not small apartments.  Small electrical appliances such as coffee pots, popcorn poppers, refrigerators, and microwaves are permitted in student rooms.

Room Assignments

Student contracts will be for available space at McCutcheon Hall or Harrison Hall.  Notification of specific room assignment will be made when you check-in at your assigned residence.  All assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis – space permitting.

Roommate Requests

While we try to accommodate roommate requests, we cannot assure these requests will be met.

Guest Policy

The guest plan approved for the 2013-2014 Academic Year, which complies with the guidelines established by the Purdue University Board of Trustees, will be in effect during the summer session.

The guest hours policy allows 24-hour visitation, seven days a week.  At the time the summer contract is submitted, each student will have the option to elect to live in a room where no guest visitation privileges will be permitted (no guests of the opposite gender, including parents/guardians and other family members, allowed at any time).

As a reminder, all University Residences facilities are designated as smoke free.

It is with pleasure that we anticipate being of service to you during your summer stay.
