Residents on floors 1-3 in the courtyard buildings also have the option of renting a lofting kit for a fee. Lofts raise standard beds to a maximum height of 72″ which allows residents to put other furniture such as desks and couches underneath. Bunking kits are available at no extra charge.

Each floor has a parlor (lounge) with study space and a television. Kitchens are located only on the 1st floors.

Rooms on the 4th Floors

There is no one standard floor plan for 4th floor rooms. Although the 4th floor rooms are all unique in their floorplans, they do share some common features.

  • All rooms on the 4th floors have the same furniture as rooms on floors 1-3.
  • Due to the sloping walls, loft kits cannot be used in 4th floor rooms.
  • Rooms have dormer windows measuring 35” wide by 48” high. Most rooms have two dormer windows, while a few have one.
  • Most rooms on the 4th floors of Vann, Stringfield, and Brewer are suite-style with a bathroom connected to two rooms. A few rooms do not have bathrooms connected to them. Those residents share a bathroom across the hall with two other rooms, and those bathrooms have extra facilities in them.
  • 4th Brewer has triple-occupancy rooms in addition to traditional double-occupancy rooms.
  • 4th Vann and 4th Stringfield only have double-occupancy rooms. They also have wardrobes rather than built-in closets.
“It is so convenient to be close to everything! Living on campus has allowed me to become much more independent and to form intimate relationships with my classmates. My family is within commuting distance, but I know that I would not get the fullness of the experience that I have had at Meredith if I lived at home.”

“I enjoy living within a walking distance to all of my classes and the safe atmosphere it entails. Living on campus has made my experience the best because it allows me to be active in so many ways. I am always surrounded by friends and feel like I always know what’s going on around campus.”

Junior - lived on campus three years
“I have lived on campus all four years. It helps a lot as an athlete. We have late nights when we come home at 1 or 2 in the morning. Luckily for me my "commute” home is really short and quick. I think living on campus has also given me an opportunity to get to know my class, as well as the younger classes, through the face-to-face interaction. It has allowed me to fall in love with the school more, especially walking back to the Oaks after Cornhuskin’. That's always fun because we all end up going back around the same time and it's like extra bonding.”
