Office Location & Hours
The Housing and Residence Life is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am - 4:30pm when the University is open. We are located on the first floor of Reese Hall, located in Rector Village.
The Housing and Residence Life Office is the central location for floral deliveries to residents in all university owned housing. Deliveries should still be addressed to the student and their current living unit. Our address is 413-1 South Locust, Greencastle, Indiana 46135.
Our office issues and tracks the keys to all rooms, apartments, and houses. Lost or stolen keys should be reported to the Housing and Residence Life Office or Public Safety immediately. A lock change will be requested and new keys issued. The resident who lost the key will be charged for the lock change ($75.00).
During office hours, residents who lock themselves out of their rooms should go to the Housing and Residence Life office to borrow a temporary key. A temporary key may be used for no more than a 24-hour period. After 24 hours, a lock change will automatically take place at the resident’s expense. Lock changes cost $75. After the Housing and Residence Life office closes, residents who are locked out of their room should contact Public Safety at x5555 to contact the student staff member on duty. Residents will be charged $10 for the second and third lock out each, and $20 for any lock out after that each time (after the first) an FYRA or CRA has to let them into their rooms.
Housing and Residence Life is responsible for the distribution and maintenance of vacuums in our First-Year and Upperclass residence halls. Students who live in Rector Village and University-owned Apartments and Houses are responsible for their own equipment.
If your community's vacuum is in need of service or repair, please contact our office via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each student’s ID card provides access to the residence hall in which they live and is also used for the University meal plan. Replacement ID cards can be obtained from ID OneCard Office (located on the lower-level of the Memorial Student Union Building) during it’s regular hours. Lost or stolen IDs should be reported to Public Safety immediately to ensure the safety of your meal plan and your residence hall.
LOFT KITS & LADDERS
In most of our buildings, you can loft without any additional equipment. For residence halls that require loft kits or ladders (based on the type of bed), requests can be made online through Facilities Management. Loft kits are $75 and are first-come, first-serve. Requests for loft kits must be received by August 1. Requests after that time cannot be guaranteed for your arrival. Ladders for beds in Longden are also available by request. To request a loft kit or ladder, please visit the Facilities Management page or log in to your e-services portal to submit a request.

Residents of Holmberg and Strasma Halls will have access to the laundry facilities on the first floor of Reese Hall. Students residing in apartments and houses will have access to non-coin operated washers and dryers either within their unit or in Reese Hall. Each resident of a house or apartment with a washer and dryer will be charged $75 per semester for laundry use. Those without a washer and dryer will be charged $25 per semester for laundry use.
