Burrstone House is located across Champlin Avenue. Transfer, upperclass, non-traditional, and international students make up the residential population in this residence hall facility. Students gain a unique living environment with an off-campus "feel" while still having the convenience of residing near campus.
Formerly a hotel, Burrstone House offers 78 residential rooms, a television room, a study lounge, and a hotel-style lobby. Like the other residence halls, there is a resident assistant living on each floor to promote student safety and support. Rooms ordinarily house two students and are equipped with private bathrooms, cable and phone access, air conditioning, and other personal amenities. The rooms are also equipped for modem access, including Internet capabilities.Please note that all Residence Halls are smoke free.

The Gay Alliance
The SafeZone program was created to develop, enhance and maintain environments in workplaces, schools and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion.
What is a SafeZone?
A safe zone or a safe space is a place where all people feel welcome and safe. It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus. The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends and co-workers. Creating safe zones or safe spaces is a proactive step that schools, agencies and corporations can take to create welcoming, inclusive spaces so that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.
