Students will be housed with a RiceEDGE roommate in double occupancy rooms with their own bathroom.* Every room is equipped with a twin bed, desk, chair, and a dresser or closet per student. Common areas for studying, socializing, and living (laundry, kitchens, etc.) are located within the building.
