The University of Scranton offers a wide variety of student housing options. Please refer to the information below to get a general idea as to what you can expect in regards to air conditioning.
Typically, first-year students live in traditional residence halls without air conditioning. It is recommended that students bring fans to use in their individual rooms. Students are permitted to open their windows but may not remove the screens.
Sophomore students are typically assigned to suite-style housing (quads) in Condron, Gavigan, and Redington Halls, all which have have central air and allow for minimal temperature control in each room.
Upperclass & Graduate Housing
The majority of our junior/senior housing is air conditioned, with the exception of the University-owned houses and the Linden Street apartments, which are not. Graduate housing in Herold Apartments does not have air conditioning, but the new Quincy Apartments will.
In Northeastern PA the weather has the ability to change significantly from day-to-day in the Spring and Fall months. Facilities Operations uses their best judgment, taking into consideration energy efficiency and student comfort, when to switch between heat and air conditioning (most of our buildings cannot run both simultaneously). Air conditioning is typically operational from mid-April to mid-September. It is challenging to accommodate the temperature preferences of each individual student, though every effort is made to maximize comfort for each residence hall community.
We utilize air conditioned buildings to house students on-campus for the summer months.
