Canyon

Canyon

The Canyon consists of eight separate buildings: Alder, Cedar, Chinquapin, Hemlock, Madrone, Maple, Pepperwood, and Tan Oak. Each building has three levels of residents and is home to approximately 50 students. Each building has a kitchen, laundry room, and a TV/study lounge on the ground floor.

There are either two floors of men and one of women, or vice-versa, in each building. There is a bathroom on each floor; bathrooms are single gender. All rooms are furnished with a bed, dresser, desk and closet or wardrobe for each resident. All beds are twin extra long. Every student in the Canyon has the ability to access the internet through wired or wireless connections. The rooms are wired for optional telephone service and cable T.V. service. Canyon halls have singles, doubles, triples and 4-person suites. Triple rooms are the same size as the double rooms. A 4-person suite consists of two bedrooms joined by a common living room. Each suite bedroom has bunk beds for two students. Those living in suites share a bedroom with one other person and a living room with three others. Custodial services clean hallways, bathrooms, and lounges.

One microwave and one mini refrigerator is provided per room for the residents of Alder, Cedar, Chinquapin, Hemlock, Madrone, Maple, Tan Oak and Pepperwood. Only one microwave and one mini refrigerator is allowed in each room.  Students should not purchase and bring these items from home. Students with medical needs requiring additional refrigeration space need to contact the Student Disability Resource Center at sdrc@humboldt.edu.  If approved, the refrigerator must be kept in an open space that allows ventilation.  Refrigerators may not be placed in a closet or under desks.

Outside you'll find a lawn for playing frisbee, sunbathing and barbecuing. The buildings are located next to the Arcata Community Forest which offers a variety of trails to explore.
