Across Eighth Street, east of the main part of campus, is East Complex, which was completed in 1968. It is composed of Hallett Hall and Erickson Hall, which each house 231 men and women on separate floors. Hallett Hall is named for Jessie Fern Hallett. She and her husband, Ernest, of Crosby, Minnesota, were major benefactors of the college. Hallett contains its own lounge and recreational facilities as well.
Rooms: Most of the rooms are for two individuals, although there are a few rooms for one person. Each room is furnished with beds (80'' x 39''), a built-in closet, dressers, mirror, fixed desks, chairs, bookshelves, study lamps, curtains and a private telephone. The beds are able to be bunked, or lofts may be rented from College Services.
Information desk: The hall information desk is located in the main lobby and is open from 12 p.m. - 6 a.m. each day. In addition to providing student phone numbers, the desk staff also makes change and checks out equipment, such as ping pong equipment, limited cooking utensils, vacuums, DVD players, and movies.
Coed facilities: Residents have 24-hour access to Grant Center, which contains a coed lounge with a fireplace and TV.
Recreational area: A lounge is located in the lower levels of both halls. The Erickson lounge is divided into a TV room, computer lab, Ping-Pong area, and study area. The lounge in Hallett includes a TV viewing area, Ping-Pong table, study area, computer lab and kitchen.
Chapel: There is a small chapel located in each lower lounge.
Laundry facilities: Located in the lower level of the residence hall, the laundry facilities include commercial automatic washers and dryers, clotheslines, and folding tables. Laundry machines are activated by funds from your student ID card. Students must furnish their own irons and ironing boards.
Cleaning equipment: Assorted cleaning equipment is available in the utility room on each floor. Vacuum cleaners may be checked out at the desk.
Storage room: A storage room is located in the lower level of the residence hall for storage of suitcases and other seldom-used items. Contact a staff member to make arrangements for its use. The college does not assume liability for items stored in the storage room. Also, items which are unmarked, or unclaimed for two years, will be donated to local charities or otherwise disposed of.
