Public kitchens are available for residents to use in Cambridge Commons, RiverView Residence Hall, and Sandburg Halls. They include full-size refrigerators, stoves, ovens, and sinks.

Cambridge Commons kitchen lounges are located in the center for each floor. RiverView kitchens are located on the end of each wing, with an additional large kitchen on the 2nd floor. The Sandburg kitchens are located on the third floor of South and North Towers, and were renovated in 2019 and 2020 as part of the Sandburg Renovation Project.

Use of the Sandburg kitchens is available by asking Security and Service Desk Staff for key-in access. By using the kitchen, a resident is responsible for turning off the oven, stove, and sink, along with cleaning the space.

Residents must provide any and all cooking utensils, as University Housing does not provide any. Also, items may not be stored in the kitchen. Students that don’t clean properly will be assessed a cleaning fee.
