Each suite in the First Street Residence Hall is fully furnished and below you will find specific information on bedroom, living room, and dining room furniture. All rooms have overhead lighting, but residents can bring additional lights for studying if needed. Blinds are installed on all the windows.
Please remember: it's up to you and your roommate/suitemates to give your room a personality and make it your own. Bring pictures decorative items from home to make your room more comfortable.
All of the residence hall suites are outfitted in a new, versatile furniture called Lifespace. It allows residents to maximize space and customize their rooms with a variety of configurations — including loft options. The bedroom is furnished with a desk with attached organizer, desk chair, chest of drawers, bookcase, ladder, bed and mattress.
Housing and Residential Life provides mattresses that are fire and flame-resistant. Residents may not substitute another mattress. When you are purchasing linens and bedding to bring to campus, you should look for extra-long styles. Standard twin size sheets will NOT fit your bed. Sales staff at department or linen stores will be able to help you determine what linens and bedding to purchase for the 36'' x 80'' mattress. You will receive a letter from UM-Flint Linen options which is provided by a company that Housing and Residential Life is working with. They will give you information for purchasing bedding and other items for your bedroom that are guaranteed to fit.
You may be happy with the configuration of the modular furniture you find in your room at Move-In, but if you want to change it we can show you how to do it safely and easily. You won't need any tools or training. You can find information on various designs by following the link below or reading the information brochure attached to your furniture.
This furniture may be configured into one of three basic designs the loft, the bunk or the single bed. Visit Loft Your Furniture (PDF) to view different configurations.
Please note that since the loft configuration is available with modular furniture, no custom-built, leased or individually owned lofts may be installed in rooms.
