Beachcomber is designated for undergrad students who are 20 years or older by the first day of fall classes. It is staffed by a paraprofessional resident coordinator.

About Beachcomber Apartments

Beachcomber contains one- and two-bedroom apartments. There is one laundry room on the ground floor. Beachcomber is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate apartments. While there is no lobby or lounge per se, there is a large central courtyard that provides social space.

Beachcomber Apartments' doors are secured by a key access system, so only residents can access the building. Each individual room is key-locked for student security. Security cameras in outside and common areas are monitored 24 hours per day, and Campus Safety patrols campus regularly to ensure student security at all times.
