Facilities and Amenities
YMCA offers many unique advantages. The facility can house up to 12 students; the perfect amount to capture a family-like atmosphere. The Third Floor Residence consists of 2 triple rooms and 3 double rooms. Each room has a high-speed internet connection, and each resident also has access to extra storage space in a walk-in-attic. For recreation and relaxation, residents can take advantage of the large lounge. This has been the home to Ping-Pong tournaments, Super Bowl parties and many other activities. The lounge is also equipped with a cable television and a computer for checking email and writing papers.
Each room is furnished with:
- A bed
Included in the reasonable monthly rate is:
- Free local calls via the hall telephone
- Air conditioning
- Basic cable in lounge
- All utilities
Limited parking is available for an additional monthly charge. Laundry facilities are available in the building. The YMCA meets all University Certified Housing standards.
Meal plans are available through the University Residence Halls and some certified housing, like Bromley Hall or Illini Tower. While we do encourage the purchase of meal plans, the YMCA does have kitchen facilities: stove, sink, refrigerator & microwave. Residents only need to provide their own food, utensils, and cleaning equipment. In addition, there are many restaurants and fast food facilities in Campustown.
Residents may have the opportunity to work at the YMCA information desk located on the first floor. Deskwork provides students with an efficient way to earn extra money, and get a little studying done during the non-busy periods. The "Y Thai Eatery" as well as other offices located within the YMCA often hire students.
