Because Mary Lyon is one of the older buildings, the room and window sizes vary a great deal. View this list of dimensions by room number (pdf). All Rooms Provided with Shades.

Microwaves: Only small microwaves are allowed.
Please use only power strips equipped with a circuit breaker rather than extension cords.
For fire safety reasons, the following are not allowed:

- Leave your candles at home. They will be confiscated even if you don’t plan on lighting them.
- Halogen lights / lamps of any kind.
There is NO STORAGE available in the Residence Halls. Please only bring what will help you in transition.
Can I Move-in Early?: During the summer Plymouth State operates many conferences, events, and special functions that utilize the residence hall facilities. In addition to these functions we also take this time to renovate, repair, and clean the facilities. As a result, it is typically not possible to move in to your residence hall before the published opening day / time.
