Common Room

All SMUSH residents have access to the common area. The large HDTV and couches make this area a perfect place for lounging, hanging out, or watching a movie. Two separate areas of couches provide plenty of seating.

Chapter Room

Prior to being the Service House, the building served as a fraternity house. The former chapter room has been converted into a study hall and space for general relaxation and reflection. Provided that the room has not been reserved for exclusive use, any resident of the Service House can use the chapter room to get away from their room or other common areas for more quiet.

Organizations or students wishing to gain exclusive use of the chapter room, or any other part of the Service House, must present their request to the residents of SMUSH at one of the weekly house meetings. At that time, all members of the House in attendance will take a vote to either grant or deny use of Service House facilities.
