Forest Residence Hall Complex

The Forest Complex, located at the southwest corner of campus, consists of five independent residence halls (Alder, Manzanita, Juniper, Spruce, and Ponderosa) and a sixth central building (Tamarack) that serves as a main lounge area. Each of the five residence halls has two stories, housing 25 to 60 people.

Every floor in Alder, Manzanita, Spruce, and Ponderosa includes a small kitchen, as well as a lounge for relaxation and study. Single, double, and quad occupancy rooms contribute to the comfortable small group living atmosphere.

Juniper, renovated during the summer of 2014, contains 29 singles with full-size beds and individual room heat controls. Students wanting to live in Juniper Residence Hall must have junior class standing or above (or be at least 21 years old) and have lived on campus for four semesters.

Take a look at a typical room layout for a single, double, or quad occupancy room. Keep in mind, especially for a quad, this is just a sample. 

While taking advantage of the opportunities offered by our smaller, independent halls, we still take care to offer the amenities of a more traditional, larger living environment. In addition to the AD office, Tamarack contains a large lounge with a fireplace, kitchen, piano, and big-screen TV with VCR and DVD players.

Manzanita is home to the Environmental Action Living Learning Community as well as the Outdoor Pursuits Living Learning Community. Please visit the respective LLC webpages for more details as well as the application.
