Sitting at the crest of Sutton Hill, Sutton Hall commands a view like none other. It also houses the McCormick Dining Center on its ground level, making it the busiest residence hall on campus. Residents of Sutton enjoy easy access to the McCormick Dining Center on the ground floor, and laundry services are available in the lower level.

- Laundry Facilities
- Furnished (Desk & Bed)
Like all rooms at Milligan, Sutton rooms are suite-style with private bathrooms shared by no more than four people. Each room is furnished with an appropriate number of standard single beds, mattresses, desks, vanity with drawers, chairs, and closets. All beds can be stacked into bunk beds if desired. You are encouraged to make your room a comfortable living environment. Bring plants, posters, chairs, tables, lamps, shelves, game systems, TVs, and more!
All residence halls at Milligan are single-gender. There are a variety of open hours throughout the week but dorms are closed to the opposite sex at all other times.
The Sutton Residence Hall staff maintains and promotes all areas of student development within the residence halls. Each Residence Hall has a Resident Director (RD) and Resident Assistants (RA) on staff to help residents with academic, housing, and personal problems, and to provide leadership, supervision, and programming for students.
- Command strips or sticky tack putty
- Tacks, tape, and nails are not allowed, so planning ahead to bring décor and shelves that will hang with either command hooks, strips, or putty will save at least an hour of frustration on move-in day.
- Plan to work with what is included
- Since you won’t be able to take any of the provided furniture out of the room, do what you can to make it your own and fun! You could make seat covers and cushions for your desk chair, play around with height and lofting of your bed, buy or make a mini shelf for your desk, or a number of other things.
- Power strip/ extension cord
- Curtains for window (also helpful for closet if staying in Hart)

- Microwave (700-watt max), mini fridge (max cu.ft.), and coffee maker/tea pot

- Pinterest it up or just take the sweetly sentimental items of home. Please keep appropriate since your room is still Milligan property.
