How are the IPP housing units configured?

All IPP housing units consist of two-bedroom apartments. Each unit's bedrooms may be occupied by one student (designated "single room" on the Housing and Meal Plan Agreement) or two students (designated "double room" on the Agreement), so that each apartment can house a minimum of two and a maximum of four students per academic session.

Each IPP housing unit has one bathroom with two sinks. If both bedrooms are occupied by one student, then two people share a bathroom. If both bedrooms are occupied by two students, then the bathroom is shared by four students.

Does Saguaro Hall have kitchen facilities? Yes. There is a common kitchen on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors of the building for use by the residents of each floor. Each kitchen has a refrigerator, stove and sink. Residents must supply their own cookware and utensils for use in the common kitchen.
Are laundry facilities available? Yes. There is a laundry room with coin-operated washing machines and dryers on the first floor of Saguaro Hall.
