Commons West

Commons West (CMW) is a five-story traditional residence hall of double-occupancy and single-occupancy rooms, which open into a common hallway with two community bathrooms shared by each floor community. Adjustments related to COVID-19 will see Commons West double-occupancy units reduced  to single occupancy for Fall 2020 in an effort to reduce occupancy density in the community. This will also allow residents of Commons West the benefit of a room design appropriate in size for two occupants all to themselves. All residents assigned to a Commons West Double will be charged the Double Room rate.
