College Owned Apartments
Located on the expanded east campus, the new Coe apartments (Brandt, Morris, Schlarbaum and Spivey Houses) are reserved for juniors and seniors, who meet and maintain qualifications.
Room assignments for the apartments are made through a number-draw system based on upper-class seniority. These apartments can accommodate up to 32 students, and most suites include four single bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a shared kitchen and living space. Providing all the comforts of home, the Coe apartments come equipped with modular furniture such as a bed, desk, and armoire; refrigerator, microwave, oven/stove, and a dining room table with chairs. Students also have the option of eating meals in the dining hall or preparing their own meals. On top of all this, each apartment also has a computer lab located in the basement. Morris and Schlarbaum Houses have classrooms located on their lower levels for interactive learning.
Coe's new apartments are less than four years old, but some of the organizations and activities that other housing has developed are not yet a part of apartment living. BOD (Board of Directors) is a student organization that allows residents to become more involved and informed with the decisions and activities that their housing participates in.
The Coe apartments were recently built thanks to the generosity and vision of the following alumni:
- Morris House — named after alumnus Merlin E. "Curly" Morris, '36
- Schlarbaum House — named after donors Gary '65, and Ruthanne '67 Schlarbaum
- Brandt House — named in honor of the parents of Joan Brandt Ringoen '50
- Spivey House — named in honor of the family of Bruce Spivey '56
"The on-campus Coe apartments offer of variety of options allowing students to experience non-traditional campus living, while still being a member of the Coe community. Primarily made up of upper class students, these living options include: two, three and four bedroom apartment style living. The experience of Coe apartment living offers experiences that are important to transitioning to life after Coe."
