[00:00:07.350]Hey everyone, my name is Alair,
[00:00:09.010]we're standing outside of the university suites.
[00:00:11.540]This is one of two types of residence halls
[00:00:13.580]that first year students can live in,
[00:00:15.260]so let's go check it out.
[00:00:19.580]The university is very concerned about
[00:00:21.450]every student's safety on campus.
[00:00:23.317]So, only residents can use their N card
[00:00:25.880]to get into the residence halls.
[00:00:27.260]Every resident has access to every residence hall
[00:00:29.690]up until midnight.
[00:00:31.120]After midnight, you only have access
[00:00:32.900]to your own residence hall.
[00:00:37.900]this is one of our typical suite style residence halls,
[00:00:41.280]you do have to get in with a key card,
[00:00:43.640]it's not the same as your N card
[00:00:45.210]so you always have two cards on you.
[00:00:50.450]In the suite style residence hall
[00:00:51.740]the floors are co-ed, but separated by suite.
[00:00:53.710]So the suite that we're standing in right now
[00:00:55.840]could be a suite of all females,
[00:00:57.340]and the suite next to us could be a suite of all males.
[00:00:59.770]There's also an RA of each gender one each floor,
[00:01:02.240]and we also offer gender neutral housing.
[00:01:05.760]So as soon as you walk in
[00:01:06.890]you do see that we have a little lounging area,
[00:01:09.360]it does come completely furnished
[00:01:10.990]so you have this little TV stand,
[00:01:13.190]you have a loveseat,
[00:01:15.240]and you have a side table,
[00:01:17.400]as well as a regular couch.
[00:01:19.300]You can hang stuff on the walls
[00:01:20.810]just make sure that you don't use things
[00:01:22.750]that will take off the paint.
[00:01:24.210]Otherwise you would get a charge for that.
[00:01:26.060]I always encourage students
[00:01:27.310]to use the teacher tape,
[00:01:28.470]you can just get it on Amazon for pretty inexpensive.
[00:01:31.200]If you wanna bring a TV to use on the TV stand
[00:01:33.920]you totally can.
[00:01:34.947]You do get basic cable on campus
[00:01:36.920]and you also get access to an RHA movie channel
[00:01:39.820]which is through the university wifi.
[00:01:43.800]So this is one of the bedrooms
[00:01:45.360]in the suite style residence halls.
[00:01:47.780]One suite has four people and there's two bedrooms.
[00:01:50.600]So this is one of the two bedrooms in here.
[00:01:52.870]It does come with a bed on each side,
[00:01:54.630]you can loft it high or low, or in the middle,
[00:01:57.280]however you want.
[00:01:58.380]You can bunk the beds if you would like.
[00:02:00.010]You do have your own desk in here,
[00:02:01.670]you have a desk chair,
[00:02:03.700]you also have your own closet space and a dresser.
[00:02:07.260]Some students like to put a little curtain
[00:02:08.970]to cover their clothes,
[00:02:10.380]but it's definitely just what you prefer.
[00:02:12.430]You can bring in whatever furniture you would like,
[00:02:15.070]you just can not take any furniture out of the room.
[00:02:17.540]So it all has to stay in here.
[00:02:20.340]So the suite style residence halls
[00:02:21.850]also come with a kitchenette.
[00:02:23.220]You get a full size refrigerator,
[00:02:24.740]you get a microwave,
[00:02:26.790]but it does not have a stove top or oven
[00:02:28.600]so you're still required to have a meal plan
[00:02:30.770]in the suite style residence halls.
[00:02:34.020]Our suite style residence hall
[00:02:35.220]also has their own bathroom and shower,
[00:02:38.340]you have a separate shower over here
[00:02:40.760]and you have a toilet as well.
[00:02:42.430]So if your roommate is showering in the morning
[00:02:44.370]and you gotta use the bathroom,
[00:02:45.590]that's not a problem at all.
[00:02:47.290]So these bathrooms are cleaned bi-weekly
[00:02:49.150]by University Housing staff,
[00:02:50.700]so it's just up to the student
[00:02:51.960]to make sure that it doesn't get completely ruined.
[00:02:55.710]Every floor on the suites has a laundry room as well.
[00:02:58.313]So it is $2.25 a load to wash,
[00:03:00.960]and free to dry.
[00:03:02.010]So if you wanna throw your comforter in there before bed
[00:03:04.680]and be all cozy, you totally can do that.
[00:03:07.360]The washers do not accept change or N cards
[00:03:09.730]so it does have to be a debit or credit card.
[00:03:12.243]You can even go online to see when the washers and dryers
[00:03:15.250]are busy, so you don't even have to walk back and forth
[00:03:17.560]to check on your clothes.
[00:03:19.100]Now we're gonna go check out
[00:03:20.170]one of the lounges in the suites.
[00:03:26.410]So this is one of the TV lounges
[00:03:28.040]that we have here in the suite.
[00:03:29.703]We also have one of these on every single floor
[00:03:32.130]so any resident can come and use these
[00:03:33.890]whenever they would like.
[00:03:35.150]They're open 24/7 and they are first come first serve.
[00:03:38.360]So you can not reserve them ahead of time.
[00:03:39.803]It's very typical to see students using these
[00:03:42.250]to have a movie night, or a game night,
[00:03:43.903]and we also have a study lounge right next to here,
[00:03:46.980]it's basically the same thing
[00:03:48.330]just without a TV.
[00:03:49.350]Next let's head over to check out
[00:03:51.000]one of the convenience stores in the residence halls.
[00:03:54.450]So this C-store is a convenience store
[00:03:56.190]for every student who lives in the suites.
[00:03:57.860]There's also a convenience store in every resident area.
[00:03:59.873]So if you ever need like a snack
[00:04:02.063]or a toothbrush, or a TV dinner,
[00:04:04.333]you can have that conveniently located right here.
[00:04:06.870]All the convenience stores accept any kind of payment
[00:04:09.170]including your N card as well.
[00:04:13.350]In the game rooms we have ping pong tables,
[00:04:15.283]we have pool tables,
[00:04:16.820]we have plenty of TV,
[00:04:18.020]so if you ever wanna have a gaming night
[00:04:19.663]you can bring your Xbox or PS4
[00:04:22.470]or whatever it is you use to hang out in here.
[00:04:25.063]And these are accessible for all students
[00:04:27.050]who live in the suites as well.
[00:04:29.800]So that concludes the tour
[00:04:30.670]of the University Suites,
[00:04:31.833]please come visit me for a real campus tour.
[00:04:34.410]You can schedule one at go.unl.edu/visit
[00:04:37.600]and I hope to see all of you here soon.
