Summer Housing

  1. A residence hall is a facility designed for university students. It does not offer hotel accommodations and services, but you will find comfortable rooms in a pleasant environment. Each floor or wing has a central washroom with shower facilities. Since most rooms are not air-conditioned, guests may wish to bring a small fan. Air conditioning units are not allowed. It is recommended that guests bring their own alarm clocks since there is no wake-up service.
  2. The residence hall conference staff consists of the Office of Conference Services personnel, live-in Conference Assistants and custodial staff. Should problems arise such as breakage or malfunction of equipment or facilities, please advise a member of the staff.
  3. A member of the Kutztown University Conference Services staff will assign rooms and provide room keys to each guest as he/she arrives for the conference (note - usually the conference group registration will take place in a residence hall lobby. The Conference Services staff will work with conference representatives in assigning rooms if so desired). Upon check out, conference guests must return room keys. The conference group will be held responsible for all keys not returned and charged accordingly. The charge for lost keys is $60.00 per key.
  4. Linens may be provided for a designated fee. Furnished linens consist of two sheets, two towels and one washcloth (pillows or blankets can be specially ordered at any additional cost). Clean towels and linens may be exchanged for extended stays. Linens are to be deposited in the linen bin (usually in desk area) upon check out. A guarantee number for linens will be required. The guarantee number is then the amount of linens that will be ordered and, in turn, will be billed to the conference. Additional linen, above the guaranteed number, will not be available. Please plan your number carefully.
  5. Coin operated washers and dryers are located on the ground or basement floors of residence halls. Other residence hall facilities such as floor lounges and kitchens are normally available for conference groups. Televisions or recreation equipment are not normally available for use by conference groups.
  6. There are no phones in the rooms. Staff may choose to bring phones for use in their rooms. Conferees are not encouraged to bring phones. Only credit card, collect and local calls may be made. A pay phone is available on the first floor of all the residence halls.
  7. Furniture and furnishings should not be rearranged or removed from rooms or public areas. Report breakage to the Conference Services staff. Furniture is placed according to maintenance needs and building and fire codes. Please respect these placements. If furniture is rearranged or moved, the conference group may be billed for the labor needed to return it to its original place.
  8. Fire, safety and hygienic standards prohibit the use of the following equipment in residence hall rooms: heating and immersion coils, space heaters, air conditioners, toasters, electric cooking devices (ie. skillets, hot plates or popcorn poppers), sun lamps or any electrical items with frayed wires.
  9. The following are also not permitted on University property.
    1. The possession and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs.
    2. Firearms, weapons, fireworks or explosives of any kind
    3. Pets
  10. Room windows should not be left open when checking out and screens should NEVER be removed except in extreme emergencies.
  11. The residence halls are usually locked from approximately 12:00midnight - 7:00am unless other arrangements are made in advance with the Office of Conference Services. Access to the residence hall can only be gained from the front entrance. All the secondary doors are exit only and alarmed 24 hours. Special arrangements within your conference group should be made if conferees or counselors plan on returning after the locked hours.
