College-Owned Apartments

The on-campus Coe apartments offer a variety of options for students to experience nontraditional campus living while still being members of the Coe community.

Primarily made up of upper-class students, these living options feature apartment-style living to help transition students to life after Coe. Students are able to prepare their own meals or eat in the dining hall.

Located on the expanded east campus, the 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, as well as a refrigerator, microwave, oven/stove and dining room table with chairs. Each apartment has a computer lab located in the basement. And Morris and Schlarbaum Houses have classrooms located on their lower levels for interactive learning.

The Coe apartments were built thanks to the generosity and vision of 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
