Community/ Duncan Dunn (CDD) Residence Hall is a newly renovated coed building with a central location to campus. This vibrant, innovative and fun hall encourages an interactive environment where many of the residents use the common spaces to interact with each other. Its location on Hillside is convenient for accessing the Greek community, the CUB, many academic buildings, and the Holland Terrell libraries. CDD is connected to Hillside Café and Market, making it extremely easy to grab breakfast, lunch and dinner on the way to class.

Key Events:
• After each semester there is a CDD Bucks Raffle. Residents can acquire CDD “bucks” for studying, helping fellow students in the hall and other supportive hall tasks. Students who enter the raffle with their accrued CDD bucks have the chance to win various prizes and gift cards.
• Opening Hall BBQ
• Service Projects

FAQS
What furniture comes with the room?

All rooms have closets, twin beds, a 3 drawer stacking dresser, and desks with a mobile pedestal file.

What size sheets should I buy for my bed??

The extra long beds are 36" by 80" with deep pockets.

How long are the bed frames? What is the size of the mattress?

The bed frames are 85" L by 38" W. The mattresses are 80" L by 36" wide. Sheets with deep pockets are advisable.

Can I loft or bunk my bed in this hall?

Yes, you can do both.  Keep in mind, however, that this is a renovated building, so floors 1, 2, and 3 have lower ceilings than you will find in a new hall, so while you can loft or bunk the bed as you wish, there is a ceiling you might hit if you sit up too fast.  The lofting kits, if not used, must stay in the room as there is no additional space in the hall to store them.

How much space is under the bed?

Varies, the beds can be lofted. The maximum space under the bed when lofted is: 56 ¾"; however, because the hall is renovated and dates from the 1920's, if a resident lofts their bed, it won't be at the theoretical maximum given here.  The maximum space under the bed in the unlofted position is 27".

Can I use a bed riser in my room, to raise the bed off the floor to gain storage space under the bed?

Yes

Yes

What are the dimensions of the desks?

Should I get renter's insurance when I live in University Housing?

Yes!  While you may be covered under your parent’s homeowner’s insurance, claims against homeowner’s insurance can be expensive, especially compared to renter’s insurance.  Personal property insurance is recommended by WSU.   This insurance will cover your belongings if they are accidentally damaged, stolen, vandalized or suffer a loss from water, fire, smoke, etc.   It’s very important to purchase coverage (starting at $65 for the year for $2,000 worth of coverage) so that in the event an emergency arises, you will have the funds to replace your items.  If a loss occurs, WSU is not responsible.  We strongly encourage all students to purchase this insurance as unfortunate situations can and do happen.  Here are some common situations that can occur:

1. Water damage from sprinklers going off
2. Fire, smoke, explosion, windstorm
3. Theft
4. Accidental damage
5. Vandalism
 
To purchase this coverage, please visit www.studentinsuranceprograms.com/pp . You can also reach our broker that handles this plan (Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc), at 866-535-0456 or student@haylor.com and they’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you enroll.

What can I use to hang posters and pictures on the walls in this hall?  What can I not use?

In Community/Duncan Dunn please use the push pins we distribute during move-in.  Please do not use 3M mounting products, double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, masking tape, or duct tape.
