Deacon Hall is an air-conditioned co-ed residence hall that can accommodate approximately 90 residents.
Although Deacon is home to our Greek organizations, there are unaffiliated wings and non-Greek students who live here.
Most rooms in Deacon are designed for semi-private occupancy, although private occupancy is permitted when space is available.
Eligibility for private rooms is based on activation or badge number within the respective chapter. An additional charge is assessed for private room accommodations.
Each residence hall room, unless designed as a private room, has two twin-size beds with mattresses, two dressers, two desks, two chairs, two desk lamps, and ample closet space.
All residence hall rooms are equipped with cable TV, a direct phone line, smoke detectors and computer network and Internet access. In addition, the campus is smoke-free.
Linens, blankets and pillows are not furnished. Approved appliances for use in the residence halls include: small refrigerators, small microwaves and iced tea makers.
Each residence hall has laundry facilities for resident convenience. A laundry card will be issued during check-in. A $10 refundable deposit is required.
Items not permitted due to serious fire hazard include, but are not limited to:
- Hot plates
- George Foreman grills
- Power tools, saws, large mowing blades, etc.
- Toaster ovens
- Crock pots
- Space heaters
- Candles, candle burners or oil burners (not allowed in the halls, even if they are not or have not been burnt)

All of the residence halls are staffed with a Resident Director, who has at least a bachelor‘s degree. There also is a Resident Assistant assigned to each corridor. The residence hall staff is there to assist students in developing a positive living-learning community. In that community, it is expected that students respect each other‘s rights and adhere to College standards of conduct.
