Living Arrangements

Carman is suite (sort-of) style living, with two doubles per suite. While the overall size of the A versus B suites varies based on the particular suite, the B lines generally feel larger and offer more options for furniture arrangement. A line rooms generally feel long and narrow, and the furniture generally fits best with a bed and desk on each long wall.

Each suite has its own bathroom consisting of two sinks, one toilet and one shower.

Each floor has a common area with a couple chairs and a cable television.

The laundry room has 14 washers and 14 dryers, but at peak usage times, this often isn't even enough. The basement lounge has a non-functional pool table, along with chairs and tables. The sole kitchen in the entire building is located in the basement as well. It contains a microwave, a questionable mini-fridge, and two oven ranges/stoves, as well as plentiful cabinet space.
