Cottage Lane Duplexes
The duplexes on Cottage Lane are units leased by the college that house upperclass students. They are designed to give students a more independent living experience and are a great stepping stone to living outside of the college setting. Students understand the expectations and responsibilities in living in these off-campus properties and agree to behave with independence, maturity and respect for themselves and the greater community. Students on Housing Contract Probation are not eligible to select to live in the Cottage Lane duplexes.
The duplexes, which are directly across Seamans Road from the college, are a complex of six buildings that hold two units each. Currently, each unit houses five students, all in single rooms. The students share a kitchen, a living room, a lounge area, and three bathrooms. Students who live in Cottage Lane pay the single room fee in addition to a premium housing fee.
The Cottage Lane duplexes are staffed by one Resident Assistant who lives in a duplex and an Area Coordinator who lives in Rooke Hall.
Two of the Cottage Lange duplex buildings opened in the fall of 2012. The other four opened in the fall of 2013. They were built and are owned by a local contractor, but have been leased by the college since their construction.
