AC approval & installation
Students residing in non-air-conditioned facilities are not permitted to bring their own air-conditioner unit to campus. However, students with a documented medical condition or disability may be approved for air conditioning by submitting documentation from the student’s family doctor to the Bailey Health Center. Once approved, the student will be directed to Facilities Operations to complete the process. Only Facilities Operations Staff is permitted to install AC units in college-owned properties.
The College has partnered with local companies for approved appliance rentals.
To prevent electrical circuitry overloads, the only microwave permitted in residence hall rooms is a microfridge. A microfridge is a combination refrigerator/microwave that regulates its power supply. Microfridge units may be purchased or rented from this vendor.
Small refrigerators are permitted in the residence halls. You may bring your own refrigerator or rent a unit through this vendor.
Service Electric Cable TV is contracted to provide basic cable services on a subscription basis to student residence hall rooms. Sign up online to order cable television. To upgrade to an HD signal, you must contact Service Electric directly at 610-865-9100 to arrange for a special box to be supplied, installed, and billed by Service Electric. Technical questions regarding cable service should be directed to Facilities Operations at 610 330-5373.
*Television lounges in most residence halls are equipped with cable.

Student or Personal Property Insurance
Personal items in student rooms and residence halls are not covered under the college’s insurance policy.
Students may wish to check a family member’s homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy to determine if coverage extends or can be extended to these items through an addendum.
Students may also obtain personal property insurance through companies like NSSI. The college does not endorse a specific personal property insurance provider, but they are one example of a policy tailored for this purpose.
Facilities Operations custodians clean residence hall common bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas. Students are responsible for cleaning individual bedroom (and suite/apartment bathroom and common areas).
Report a Facilities Problem
The Facilities Operations department is responsible for cleaning and maintaining the residence halls. Our office acts as a liaison between students and Facilities Operations. Students are prohibited from doing their own repairs.
Non-emergency repairs should be submitted through a work order request or by informing your RA. Emergency requests should be reported immediately as follows:
- Weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., call Facilities Operations at 610-330-5373.
- After 4:30 p.m. and on the weekends, call Public Safety at 610-330-5330.
For concerns about laundry facilities please submit a work order request. Please include the following information so that your request can be processed quickly:
- Location of the laundry room (building and floor)
- Exact location of machine that is malfunctioning (ex. 1st washer on the left)
- Specific description of the problem (ex. washer fills with water but does not drain)
Trash and Recycling
Each floor contains a central trash can and recycling container for small items. Custodians empty hallway trash and recycling containers. You are encouraged to take your room trash directly to the exterior dumpster located near your building.
