Most hall floors have central common areas and study rooms. Each floor is staffed by two live-in Resident Assistants who monitor the halls and promote community engagement. There are four residence hall room options:

  1. Washakie Suites

  2. Single Rooms

  3. Double Occupancy Rooms

  4. Triple Occupancy Rooms

ABOUT JUNE ETTA DOWNEY

June Etta Downey was an American psychologist who studied personality and handwriting. Downey was born and raised in Laramie, Wyoming, where she received her degree in Greek and Latin from the University of Wyoming. Throughout her life, Downey wrote seven books and over seventy articles. Included in this work, Downey developed the Individual Will-Temperament Test, which was one of the first tests to evaluate character traits separately from intellectual capacity and the first to use psychographics methods for interpretation. In addition to her many published works, Downey held several prestigious positions. She chaired the Department of Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Wyoming and in doing so became the first woman to hold a head position at a state university.
