Each unit is furnished with two beds, chairs, dressers, and closets. All rooms are air-conditioned and are provided with high-speed internet access and basic cable at no additional charge.

What to Bring
Putting together a room with your roommate can be exciting and rewarding. There are many ways you can make your new residence feel like home. We allow decorations and furnishings that do not deface the room or create hazards for you and your hall mates. The following is a list of what you need or may want to bring to your new room. If possible, check with your roommate to avoid any duplication, which might limit space.
Pillows ~ Linens (twin size) ~ Blankets ~ Comforter/bedspread ~ Clothes hangers ~ Laundry basket/bag ~ Laundry supplies ~ Iron ~ Lamps ~ Wastebasket ~ Alarm Clock ~ Stereo ~ Television ~ Personal computer ~ Dishes ~ Desk references ~ Personal toiletries ~ Silverware ~ Pictures/ posters (no nails allowed in walls) ~ Fun-Tac (to hang pictures/posters)
What Not To Bring
The following items are NOT allowed in individual rooms:
Alcohol Bottles (full or empty) ~ Tobacco (smokeless included) ~ Candles/incense/candle warmers ~ Microwaves (these are provided) ~ Fire arms/explosives/weapons ~ Hot plate/grills ~ Coffee Pots ~ Pets (fish are allowed but only in less than a 10 gallon tank)
Have Some Fun
Brooks Hall also offers students a way to socialize and have fun together in a diversified, safe college atmosphere. Floor meetings and activities are planned each month so that students get to know one another and learn from each other's personal experiences.
Break and Summer Housing
The residence hall is closed for Winter break. Housing occupancy during Thanksgiving and Spring Breaks may be arranged with approval of the Student Life Staff on each campus at no additional cost. Board plans are not available during Break periods.
Note: If a student attended MPCC during the spring semester and is registered for the fall semester, he/she is not required to be enrolled in summer classes to be allowed to stay in summer housing. However, please keep in mind that if an extraordinarily large number of students request summer housing which causes room availability to be tight, assignment priority will be given to those students who are enrolled for the summer sessions.
