All beds in men’s residence halls are extra-long twins, except in Allen where they are regular twins. Each bedroom has a separate connection for the campus DormNet system for each occupant and one cable television connection. Some items may be put on the walls. What they may be attached with is different for different facilities, but usually Command-style hooks can be used. The Residence Life Coordinator for each facility will tell occupants when they move in what may be used in that facility.
