Each floor has two bathrooms at opposite ends of the hall which are cleaned daily by Housing Facilities staff. Bathrooms are equipped with multiple sinks, private toilets and showers. Paper towels, hand-washing soap and toilet paper are regularly stocked so you don’t have to buy your own.
There are many dining options available for you at USU. The Junction and the Marketplace, located in the Taggart Student Center (TSC), are two very popular places for residents. There is a wide variety of food options everything from home-style cooking, salads, pasta to a Mongolian grill.

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
- 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 may want to bring the following. 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:
- Small refrigerator
Please Note: If you choose to bring a small refrigerator and/or microwave make sure that you get one with a long cord as the electrical outlets are inconveniently located and these appliances must be plugged directly into the wall outlet, not into an extension cord or power strip, as per the USU Fire Marshal.

Bathroom and common areas are regularly cleaned by Housing Facilities staff. Residents are responsible for the regular upkeep of their rooms and should stock simple household cleaning supplies. 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.
