Welcome to your home away from home.
We are committed to creating an environment that provides each resident the best possible opportunity for academic and personal growth.
Please read our Housing Handbook for information on dorm policies and procedures.
Roommate assignments are made by the Residence Hall Director with the assistance of college staff. Students who wish to request a specific roommate may do so when they complete the housing contract. These requests are taken into consideration but cannot always guarantee that’s who your roommate will be. All room changes must be cleared with the Residence Hall Director. If you have problems with a roommate, please contact the Residence Hall Director to work out the problem or to make a change.
Otero College reserves the right to change any room assignment without notice.
The following furnishings are provided by Otero College for the students of Otero Housing: drapes, desk/chair, bed, dresser, and a closet. Mattresses provided are twin x-long.
