Morrison & Rauenhorst Information

Welcome to Rauenhorst and Morrison Halls! This page outlines all of the amenities, services, and community policies that you need to know about before moving onto campus.

Emergency Procedures

Suggested Packing List 

Cable Television

Your suite/apartment living room comes with cable service, at no additional cost. Cable service is not available in individual rooms. You do not need to sign up for service, but you do need a gold-plated coaxial cable to plug into the cable outlet from your TV. You can purchase coaxial cables from electronic or discount retail stores for around $10-20. Once you get to campus and plug into cable it may be necessary to re-program your TV with your remote control. If you have an older television and it does not have a digital tuner, you will need to purchase a digital converter box to access local channels. If you experience problems with your cable service, please contact the Help Desk at 651.690.6402 or submit a Work Request Ticket.
