FAQ

What size are the beds?

The dorm room beds are Twin XL. Some stores have the opportunity to buy where you are and they will be in a store here, when you arrive (Ship to Store). For example, you go on-line with WalMart to order some bedding or dorm supplies. There will be an option for you to choose to have it shipped to the Henrietta, NY store. Simply pick it up when you arrive or during your stay.

Will my academic counselor be available?

You will have two different counselors – one for SVP (Career Seminar Instructor/CSI's) and one for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters). Your CSI will have time to chat with you about any questions or concerns you may have during your class time. Your academic counselor won’t be assigned until you are accepted into a major at the end of SVP. Each counselor supports a specific major.

Where can I borrow a laptop computer?

You can borrow a laptop computer from the Resource Desk in the NTID Learning Center (LBJ 2450) or from the Wallace Memorial Library. Both locations allow you to reserve in advance.
