Housing and Dining Facilities

 

Housing Availability

Residence hall facilities are available on the Thatcher campus for both men and women. A tour of these facilities can be arranged when you visit our campus. Preference will be given to full-time students for College housing. Our Student Life Office also maintains a directory of off-campus housing facilities available for rent.

We reserve the right to deny campus housing, change room assignments, or remove a student from College housing if it is felt to be in the best interest of the student and/or the College. We cannot be responsible for loss, theft, or damage to personal property. Firearms, other weapons, explosives of all kinds, intoxicating liquors, and illegal drugs are prohibited in the residence halls and elsewhere on college property.  If found, they will be confiscated and violators subject to disciplinary action. Pets are not allowed in the residence hall areas or rooms.

 

Room Reservations

Returning students have priority for College housing; however, if you're a returning student, you must have a full room deposit and current housing contract on file by the end of the previous semester or lose your priority.

To make a room reservation, submit to the Housing Office a completed Residence Hall Application and License Agreement and a $150 housing deposit. Priority will be granted on the basis of the date the application and deposit are received.

 

College Housing Deposit

A $150 housing deposit and a declaration of your intent are required to reserve space in College housing. Upon check-in, the funds become a deposit against loss or damage to College property. Housing deposits may be left on account between semesters. Individual and communal damage expenses will be charged as they occur. A full deposit of $150 must be maintained in your account in order to maintain your reservation between semesters.

 

Housing Cancellations and Refund Eligibility

In order to meet the demand for housing and provide rooms for those students who really need them, there are firm cancellation and refund policies in effect.  If you wish to cancel your housing reservation, you must notify the Housing Office at (928) 428-8605. Cancellations on or before July 15 for the fall semester or on or before December 15 for spring semester will result in a full refund of your $150 Housing Reservation Deposit.  Cancellations after these dates will result in loss of your deposit.  Your room payment must be made on or before the first day the residence halls open for the semester.  If you do not pay by this date, your reservation will be cancelled and your deposit forfeited. If you move out of the residence hall prior to the end of the academic registration period, your deposit will be forfeited and you will be eligible for a 50% refund of your room fee. After the end of the registration period, there will be no further room fee refunds.  Housing Deposits will be refunded minus individual and/or communal damages.  Petitions for a waiver of the Housing Refund Policy may be filed in the Student Life Office.

What About Dining Facilities?

All students living in residence halls are required to purchase one of the meal plans described below.  Small refrigerators and locking cupboards are provided in Residence Towers so students may prepare snacks to supplement their meal plans.

Campus food service is available 234 days per academic year. There are approximately 118 days in fall semester and 116 in spring semester. Students may choose to eat in the Dining Room or the more casual setting of Gila Hank's Cafe. Dining Room meals are cafeteria-style and feature "all you can eat" (unlimited seconds). Three meals per day are served Monday through Friday. Brunch and dinner are served on the weekends.  All meals must be used within the week or they are lost (“Use or Lose”).  Only one meal can be used per meal time. Sack meals can be ordered 24 hours in advance.

Gila Hank's Cafe is open 6:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. weekdays with afternoon and evening hours on weekends during the Fall and Spring semesters. In Gila Hank's Cafe students may order from the menu and pay on a per-item basis (a la carte).
