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.
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 experience problems with your cable service, please contact the Help Desk at 651.690.6402 or submit a Work Request Ticket.
There are multiple computer labs in each building. The lab printers are networked, so you can send print jobs to the printers from your personal computer from anywhere in the building. Instructions for connecting to the printer in your building are available in the computer lab or through the Help Desk online guides. To report a computer or printer problem and to request ink or paper for a computer lab printer, please call 651.690.6402 or submit a Work Request Ticket.

It is your responsibility to read and follow all University policies, including those specifically for the residence halls. The Student Code of Conduct and the Residence Life Community Policies outline your rights and responsibilities as a student.
Duty Staff - On Call Resident Advisors

Students are responsible for reporting problems with the machines. Please call MacGray at 800.MAC.GRAY and use their online maintenance ticket system to report issues.
Lofting and Bunking
The University provides lofting and bunking equipment at no additional cost. The use of personally constructed lofts or alternative lofting equipment is not allowed. Loft and bunk kits include bed ends, stabilizing bar, ladder, and safety rail. Lofting and bunking equipment is available for residents on opening day. Signs will be posted in your building informing you about loft/bunk kit storage hours. Once equipment has been checked out to you, you are responsible for returning the kit upon moving out. You are responsible for assembling the loft or bunk. Using less than two people to set-up your loft or bunk may result in bent equipment and damage charges. Please speak to your Resident Advisor if you have questions about lofting or bunking. Students are strongly encouraged to use ladders and safety rails.
Mail will be delivered to your Coeur de Catherine mailbox. New students will receive their mail box number and combination at Orientation.
