On the main level of the Mallett Hall is a large study lounge and game room. It also has a working piano, and yes, it actually gets played! The lower level of Mallett has a large laundry room and a full kitchen.

The University allows students to choose a “gender-inclusive” placement in this hall.

Because restrooms are community-style, during the first floor meeting an anonymous vote occurs where students can voice their thoughts on restroom designations. If a resident would like restrooms to be gender-specific, then restrooms are designated as such for the floor.

The residence hall is overseen by an Area Director who assists in the development of communal living. This professional staff person is responsible for enhancing residents’ college experience by assisting in promoting holistic community development.

Programs designed by the Community Assistants in the hall promote the development of academic, personal, and social well-being. A Community Assistant is an upper-class UMF student who assists in building community within their areas, as well as helping residents get involved in the campus community through various programming initiatives.
