Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a parking permit?

Complete the online parking request form when it becomes available in August. Specific information will be sent to your ESU student e-mail regarding parking permit dates and process. You can pick up your parking permit at Police & Safety during move-in days.

What furniture is already in my room?

Each resident is provided a bed, extra-long twin mattress, desk, desk chair, and closet or wardrobe. you can check out floor plans of the different rooms by clicking "Living On Campus" at the top navigation and selecting either "First-Year Residence Halls" or "Upper-Class Residence Halls".

What is a Resident Assistant?

Your Resident Assistant (RA) is a student just like you. Each RA lives on a floor and is responsible for creating a good community and planning events for the floor. You should talk to your RA first with concerns or questions!

Can I bunk or loft my bed?

To have your bed bunked or lofted prior to your arrival, complete the request form in the Residential Life Portal. If bunking, your roommate will also need to complete the form to ensure the request is mutual. Bunking is available in all buildings. Lofting is available for students in Singular, Trusler, North Tower, and South Tower. We will not process loft request on move-in days.

How do I get cable?

Each room is cable-ready and you can purchase cable through Cable One by calling 620-342-3535.

How do I access the internet?

Good news! Our residence hall network finished a major update during summer 2017. Residents can access the Hornet Hall wireless network anywhere in our residence halls by following the instructions provided by Residential Life staff. In addition, residents can connect via Ethernet ports in each residential room.
