Ridgewood is an apartment-style housing option for juniors and seniors. Ridgewood, which opened in 2009, accommodates approximately 180 students.
Ridgewood has three Community Advisors (CAs) who engage residents in establishing active living and learning environments where each individual is invested in promoting the success and safety of all members of the community. The CAs create and execute programs, address student concerns and support the community when issues arise.
Ridgewood shares an Area Coordinator (AC), a live-in full-time professional staff member with Ziv, 567 South Street, and Village. The AC supervises the CAs, manages the residence halls, and holds regular office hours in the Community Living office.
Ridgewood is comprised of primarily four-person apartments, with a few six-person apartments located in Ridgewood B. All bedrooms in Ridgewood are single person, and all apartments are gender neutral. Each apartment has a private bathroom, kitchen and common area. Kitchens are equipped with a stove, oven, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator and microwave. Common areas are equipped with bar stools for the kitchen island, two chairs and one love seat. Six-person apartments have two additional chairs.
