Forest Halls

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

Every floor in Alder, Manzanita, Spruce, and Ponderosa includes a small kitchen, as well as a lounge used 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 Hall must have junior class standing or above, be at least 21 years of age if not a junior or above, and have lived on campus for four semesters. 

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.  Upper Tamarack — in addition to the AD office — 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.

Take a look at a typical room layout for a QUAD or a DOUBLE occupancy room. You can download either page for a closer look but keep in mind, especially for a quad, this is just a sample. Of course, every four-person room has four beds, desks, closets, dressers but the layout might be slightly different.
