Lockwood Hall is a co-ed, cooperative living environment for juniors and seniors. By cooperative living, we mean apartment-style living where residents are responsible for the daily running and upkeep of the building. This predominately single-room housing option allows students to reside on campus with the added benefit of being close to classrooms and campus events and the freedom of apartment-style living.
Lockwood residents make the decisions for the building, do programming, set standards and, if needed, hold each other accountable. Residents living in the building are not required to have a residential meal meal plan, but can have one if they would like. All Lockwood students sign a community living agreement. It is up to the community to form their own constitution and bylaws for the cooperative environment.
Residing in this building is a professional staff member (called a Graduate Area Coordinator) who assists in the development of communal living. This staff person is responsible for enhancing residents’ college experience by assisting in promoting programs within the hall.
Programs designed by the Community Coordinator in the hall promote the development of both academic and social skills. A Community Coordinator is an upper class UMF student who assists in building community within their areas, as well as help residents get involved in the campus community through various programming initiatives.
A meal plan is not required for residents of Lockwood Hall. Instead, the building has a large communal kitchen with a dining area.
