One of the best parts of college is the experiences you'll have while living on the dorms, and that's no exception here at Emmaus! 

Nearly all of our dormitories are single rooms, with the exception of two- to four-person suites available in Smith Hall.  Each single room is outfitted with a bed, desk, desk chair, dresser, sink, and medicine cabinet, as well as a closet and room for storage above the closet (click here for the dimensions of our single rooms).  In Smith Hall, suites are equipped with beds, dressers, desks, desk chairs, and closets. Smith Hall suites are air conditioned, as well as each dorm room/suite has its own heating register and window.

Each hall has a common restroom facility including individual showers, toilets, and sinks. In addition to this, we have a fully-equipped, non coin operated laundry facility that is available for resident use. 

Check out our virtual tour to see the dorms (and the rest of the campus) for yourself!
