Residence Halls Info
What is Furnished?
Each room has a bed, desk and chair for each student, plus a dresser to be shared. Every hall, except Bowen, has a lavoratory/medicine cabinet in each room. All halls have multiple rest rooms/showers on each floor.
What Should Students Bring?
Specific items needed are towels, wash cloths, pillows, linens, (mattresses are 36" by 80"), blankets, spreads, curtains, and personal items. Small television sets, stereos, radios, study lamps, and small appliances (popcorn poppers, coffee pots, hair dryers, electric irons, etc.) are allowed. Do not bring equipment that would require alterations in electrical hookups. Large appliances such as roasters, ovens, fry pans, that require heated oil or large console type entertainment units are not allowed. Only one refrigerator per room is allowed. A refrigerator rental service is available.
Refrigerators must be UL approved and cannot exceed 5 cubic feet or operate on more than 120 volts.
Because of possible structural and water damage, the use of water beds is not allowed.
As soon as room assignments are received, it is suggested that roommates contact each other to determine what each will bring to avoid unnecessary duplication.
State Fire Marshal Regulations:
All residence halls are equipped with coin-operated automatic washers and dryers. Any malfunction of laundry equipment should be reported immediately to the Assistant Director of the hall. Ironing boards are available in each residence hall. Students are to furnish their own irons and laundry detergents. Students are not to dye fabrics in the washing machines.
Each student will be issued a room key when checking into the residence hall. BOWEN, TERRACE, MOREY, PILE, and NEIHARDT residents will also receive a mailbox key. All other residence halls have combination lock mailboxes. The replacement cost for a room key is $30.00 and for a mailbox key the cost is $1.00. The replacement will include the repinning of the door lock and the issuance of new room keys. After a lock is repinned, the original key will not open the door. Duplication of any college key is prohibited by state law. Students locked out of their room must have a staff member unlock the door. Residence hall main entrance keys, corridor keys, or wing keys must be kept especially secure because of their necessarily high replacement cost. Replacement of these keys will cost $100 for front door keys and $50 for wing or corridor keys.
Each hall has a reception desk near the main entrance of the building. Student workers operate it during several hours of the day and, depending on individual hall policy, check out games and cooking utensils, make change, take phone messages, contact the hall staff when needed, answer questions and give information to the general public, etc.
Mail to the residence halls is picked up by authorized personnel only and distributed in the students' mailboxes in the halls. Students receiving registered, certified special delivery, or postage-due mail will be notified and asked to call personally at the college mail room in Hahn Administrative Building. Security of the mail is of great importance and every effort is made by all concerned to handle mail carefully. Outgoing mail may be deposited in one of several mailboxes on campus.
The correct mailing address for your incoming mail is:
Residence Hall Name, Room Number
Wayne State College, 1111 Main Street
Wayne, NE 68787-1172
All delivery services (UPS, Federal Express, Floral Shops, etc.) are required to stop at the front desk. Students receiving or sending packages must coordinate the service through the front desk.
