To add to all of the amenities available in Florent Gillet Hall, we are proud to have a regulation size sand volleyball court where we play our men's, women's, and co-ed 4-on-4 and 6-on-6 outdoor intramural sports. We also have a basketball court, where we play our men's, women's and co-ed 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 outdoor intramural sports. Both courts are available for recreational use during daylight hours, seven days a week.

Laundry & Vending Machines

Laundry rooms are located on every floor of the residence hall. The washers are front/top-loading units that use far less water and, as a result, use less detergent as well. The cost to do laundry is $0.75 per load to wash and $0.75 per hour to dry. The machines are coin operated (quarters only). Residents should report any malfunction of laundry equipment directly to Residence Hall Staff.  Facilities work orders/tickets should not be submitted.

If you are looking for a quick snack while you do a load of laundry, vending service is available in the community room.


All rooms are equipped with multiple data jacks to ensure 24x7 access to the Internet. We're proud to offer a data connection for every bed, as well as one in each living area. Adding to individual room capabilities, two computer labs and a large study lounge are located in the hall for students' technology needs.  Residents may want to consider purchasing wireless routers to enhance their Web experience. Both the cafeteria and Community Room have wireless access.

Florent Gillet Hall has nearly 30 computers with printing access located on the first and second floor. The first floor's printer is a multifunctional color printer with the capability of copying, printing and scanning. The third floor boasts a spacious study lounge with multiple dry erase boards that help bring the classroom experience to life with large study groups.
