Because of increased enrollment and the number of students requesting to live at the W.A. Lettinga Campus, every four bedroom suite in South Hall will extend to house five people instead of four. Now, in each four bedroom suite, one of the bedrooms will be shared between two students. The students chosen to live in the double occupancy rooms were based solely on the date of their housing application to ensure fairness for all. Because of the unexpected doubling, those students sharing a bedroom will receive a 25% discount in room fees.Please keep an eye on your Davenport University email to find you if you have been placed with a roommate.
