The Pierson Center is the largest of Indiana Tech’s residence halls. Designated as the primary residence hall for freshmen, the building houses 251 students in suite-style rooms. The suites contain a small shared entryway which acts as a divider for both sides of the suite. Each student is assigned to either side A or side B, with each side accommodating two students. Each side has a bathroom separated by a shared bathtub/shower.
Amenities for each student in a suite include:
- Bed containing a twin long (80-inch) mattress
- Two-drawer file unit under the desk
- Desk chair
- Large 2-drawer dresser
- 3-shelf/3-drawer bookcase
- A wardrobe (with affixed bulletin board)
- High-speed Internet access
Additional suite amenities
In addition to wired connections in each suite, the Pierson Center also has wireless access for those students with wireless network cards in their laptops (Note: The student must be logged into the Indiana Tech network). There is also a cable television jack for digital cable. All services are active throughout the year. Students must provide their own television and register for their student account to access the network. Telephone service inside the rooms is not active by default. Any student wishing to have telephone service in their residence hall room may lease an IP phone from the information technology office.
Pierson Center is staffed by eight resident assistants and security officers at the main entrance. The main entrance to the building is controlled by card access and only permits students living in the building unrestricted access. Each floor in the Pierson Center contains a lobby with furniture and a big screen television. Laundry facilities are located on each wing and contain two washers ($1.25) and two dryers ($1.00). The facility is monitored by closed circuit cameras internally and externally.
Students living in the Pierson Center are required to purchase the meal plan.
