All students will be placed in single rooms, sharing a suite style bathroom with one other person of the same gender. Rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, chair, and dresser. Bed linens, pillows, and towels are provided by the residence hall and can be exchanged for clean linens weekly. Washing machines and dryers are available for free for your use, but you must purchase your own laundry detergent. Owen Hall has several common spaces including a take-out style restaurant and convenience store, cafeteria style seating, a media room, community kitchen, study rooms, a computer lab, music practice rooms, and a large outdoor patio. Air conditioning is not available in individual rooms, but all common spaces are air-conditioned. Students are provided with box fans in their rooms.

It is possible to request another participate on an ASP Short Course as your suitemate (the person you will share a bathroom with). To request a suitemate, make sure you complete and submit your Housing Form in your Traveler Dashboard by the deadline. ASP Staff will try to accommodate your request, but cannot guarantee the request will be fulfilled.
