Governor's Corner Suites for Graduate Students

The Suites

Information on this page:


For Autumn Quarter, 2016, Jenkins House is being offered as an option for graduate students. One four-bedroom suite and three six-bedroom suites are available, all on the third floor.  Each student within the suite is assigned a single room and each suite includes a furnished common area and one bathroom. The units are similar to apartments, but do not include kitchens. On the 1st floor of the building, there is a laundry room and kitchenette. The remainder of the students living in this house will be upperclass undergraduates.

Governor's Corner Suites
The Suites are housed in four buildings on the west side of campus (Jenkins, Griffin, Anderson & Marx).  

Dining Societies
All students assigned to the Suites are required to take a meal plan at one of the Dining Societies—Avanti, Beefeater, Bollard and Middle Earth. The meal plan charge is approximately $2281 for Autumn Quarter, and provides 10 meals per week, which must be taken at your assigned Dining Society location adjacent to the suites. There is also an open kitchen option available outside of meal times. There are no exceptions to the meal plan requirement.
