From its completion until the fall 2009, Flippen-Perrin Hall has housed women. But in the fall of 2009 freshmen men moved in; the move has resulted in a new kind of freshmen community sometimes referred to as “FRESHMEN ISLAND.” Because freshmen men and women (housed in Frances Crawford Hall) are now next-door neighbors, it’s easier to catch a movie in the lobby with friends, participate in open hall, meet up with a group for dinner, or throw a disc on the Cone Bottoms lawn.
Each of the two wings house 80 students. The rooms are arranged in suites, each room sharing a bathroom with two sinks and vanity, a tub/shower, and a toilet.
13’5″ x 17’4″
51″ x 45″
13’8″ x 17’9″
51″ x 45″
*While there are 2 windows, they share the same 51 x 45 opening.
Two bunkable twin beds are furnished in each room. The mattresses are extra-long, 80″. Each student has his own shelving, drawers and closet. One night stand is also provided. Additional storage is available above the closet area.
Carpet may be placed in the room but may not attached to the floor. Other alterations to the room, such as ceiling fans, are not permitted. University owned furniture (beds, desks, shelving, etc) may not be removed from the room.
3M Command Strips and white sticky-tack are the only acceptable way to secure anything to the walls in Flippen or Perrin.
