Lounge/Recreation/ Study Space
Centrally located spaces for relaxing and studying with friends are located throughout the complex. ROTH Complex has an exercise room with a treadmill, recumbent bike, elliptical and small weight set. A sand volleyball court, outdoor grills, and picnic tables are also available.
No Big Deposit
Unlike many apartment renters, ROTH Complex residents are not required to provide, in advance, a deposit equal to the first and last months rent. A $200 prepayment and $25 residence application fee is required for those who complete a contract to live in ROTH. The $200 prepayment is applied to a student's first university bill after residency has begun.
Laundry facilities
Eight washers and eight dryers are located in the commons and are accessible to all residents 24 hours a day. ROTH has two computer terminals located in the laundry room exclusively for e-mail communication.
No Extra Monthly Bills
All costs are included in ROTH Complex rates, with simple payments through your university bill. ROTH also has no connect/re-connect charges or monthly bills for local phone, utilities or cable access.
Accessible Parking
There is plenty of "C" parking adjacent to ROTH for residents and their guests.
Stay Over Breaks
Need or want to stay put during academic breaks? There is no problem and no extra charge to stay in your ROTH apartment or suite during the academic breaks.
Handicapped Accessible
The entire complex is accessible.
Mail Room
Mail is delivered daily, except Sundays, in the commons building. Each resident is assigned a mailbox according to their living space. Your mailbox is accessed with your room key. Stop by the mail room often to make sure your incoming correspondence doesn't pile up.
Office Services
The office is located in the central commons building within the ROTH Complex. A variety of services are available for ROTH residents: equipment check-out, copy machine, change, lock-out keys, maintenance issues, out-going mail drop-off, stamps, plus check out of movies, tools and cleaning equipment.
Staff
Residence staff consists of the Residence Life Coordinator and four Resident Assistants (RAs). Other important staff provide custodial, secretarial, and office support services.
Residence Life Coordinator
The residence life coordinator is a full-time staff person with a master's degree in college student personnel or a related field. The residence life coordinator supervises the RAs and office staff, advises student groups and oversees the
management of the building.
Resident Assistants
Resident assistants are full-time students. The RAs are carefully selected and trained to be knowledgeable about university services and opportunities. The RAs are here to help residents adjust to living in an apartment or suite or to college life in general. Their role is to keep residents informed and, most importantly, lend an ear to those who need advice or assistance.
