Are you are returning student looking for an on-campus apartment but not sure which one is right for you? Merrill Hall is a great option as the west wing is reserved just for returning students who are looking for a freshman-free apartment. Just think... you could be living in your own West Wing.

The Merrill-Crazier Library is nearby so you’ll always have an escape if you’re looking for a new place to study or just to get away. Merrill Hall is also near the Kent Concert Hall and Fine Arts building so you can easily catch all the great drama and musical events that are offered throughout the year.

Merrill Hall has a full kitchen, living room and one bathroom. There are three bedrooms split between six roommates.

If you get tired of your own cooking or you just want a quick snack stop by the awesome food hot spots located right on campus. You will want to check out the block meal plan options (make this a link) available through USU Dining Services to apartment residents that will save you time and money.

What To Bring

Make your "home away from home" with this basic list of essential items:

  • Bedding: Sheets, blankets, pillow, pillowcases, and bedspread. Mattresses are 36” x 80” which are longer than a regular twin.
  • Alarm clock
  • Stereo, radio
  • Computer
  • Towels and toiletries
  • Laundry basket
  • Television (each apt. has cable TV hook-up)
  • Wall decor, throw pillows, various decorative items as desired.

(Please do not use tape or other types of adhesive for wall décor and make sure that they can be easily removed. A suggestion for hanging posters, pictures, etc., is white Plastitack and Command Hooks from 3M for putting things on the walls.)

In addition to your personal belongings, you will need items for your kitchen. Since you need only one of many items, check ahead with your roommate(s) if possible to avoid duplication. You may even want to wait until you get to Logan and purchase items here after consulting each other. The following is a list of possibilities:

  • Dishes, silverware, glasses, serving dishes
  • Mixing bowls, hand mixer
  • Cutting board, measuring cups and spoons
  • Salt and pepper shakers
  • Dishtowels, dishcloths, hot pads
  • Frying pan, pots and pans
  • Dish drainer
  • Egg beater, strainer, can opener
  • Cheese grater, vegetable peeler
  • Clothes iron, small kitchen appliances

Storage space in all buildings is extremely limited, so please plan accordingly.

Housekeeping and Maintenance

Residents are responsible for cleaning their apartment, which includes the bathroom and should stock household cleaning supplies and toilet paper. Vacuum cleaners can be checked out for temporary use at the area office. Repairs and regular maintenance of residence halls is done by Housing Facilities staff. Residence may submit maintenance requests online at http://fixit.housing.usu.edu
