Centrally located, Maple is the ideal location for those who want to be right in the middle of the campus life.
Living at Maple
- Situated near the center of campus, Maple Hall is the ideal location for those who want a short walk to Lower Commons for a late-night study break or prefer a quick commute to the classroom.
- Maple's living areas are structured as small units of 17 rooms centered on a lounge with several couches, tables, chairs, and a flat-screen TV.
- Every room in the building is furnished with a bed, bureau, desk, chair, and closet or wardrobe suitable for the number of people in the room. Each room comes equipped with cable and data hook-up and the whole building is wireless-ready.
- Each restroom is designated as a single-use restroom, which means you can close the door and lock it behind you. It’s kind of like being in the comfort of your own home.
- There are two laundry rooms, located in the basement of the 4/5 tower and the basement of the 9/10/11 tower. There are also vending machines located in the 4/5 and 9/10/11 towers.
Maple has ten identical units. Most units' living areas house 26 residents in eight single and nine double rooms. The unit is divided into four sections, three with two singles and two doubles and one with three doubles. There are two sections on the left of the common room, and two sections on the right. There are also two singles on the same level as the common room. Each unit has its own common room with a large TV that is connected to the campus’ cable TV network.
Maple Hall is home to the campus Intercultural Center, the Gender & Sexuality Center, and the Women’s center.
The Intercultural Center is a resource we offer that gives life to that vision by providing a student-centered space with the motto “Welcoming people of all nationalities, faiths and personal identities.” Distinct from universities that organize their offices around separate social identities, the Intercultural Center provides a common space that houses staff with expertise in multicultural, international and LGBT student affairs. The Intercultural Center also houses the Spiritual Life Office with the University Multifaith Chaplain and several affiliated chaplains. Together this group offers interfaith activities to help students receive spiritual support and gain religious literacy.
The Gender & Sexuality Center houses our LGBTQIAP+ student club, Sexual Advocacy for Everyone (SAFE) and two clubs that are committed to various issues facing women in the world, FEM Society, and the Women's Collective.
The Women’s Center serves as a support and resource area for all students. Members of the Women’s Center meet weekly to engage in feminist discussion, explore current issues facing women and to develop awareness programs and other educational opportunities for the Roger Williams campus community. This group also serves as a support network.
