St. Ambrose University's Residence Life Department works with selected vendors, external to the institution, to provide additional amenities to our residents.
We work with Basket Bowtique, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to provide a great way for you to let your student know you are thinking of them. Care packages are available for move-in day, Halloween, Valentine's Day and finals week, for the fall and spring semesters. Check out the Care Packages page for more information. You will receive a letter and order form in the mail during the summer that describes the packages available, order by the deadline so your student is sure to receive their care package.
Residence hall rooms contain extra-long beds (36" x 80") which require extra long linens to comfortably fit the mattresses. Student Services has an agreement with an outside vendor to provide these linens through www.rhl.org/sta. Students will receive a letter and order form in the mail during the summer that describes the products and special packages available. Make sure to order by the deadline to ensure linens arrive at home before departing for campus.
If your student would like extra space in their residence hall room, consider renting a loft. Lofts are a great way to maximize space and they are delivered to your room so they're waiting for you when you arrive on move in day. Students wanting to loft their beds in single rooms in Davis, Hagen or North Hall must use the materials provided in their rooms. Students living in all other University housing must use lofting materials rented from College Products at www.collegeproducts.com/bees. College Products also sells durable futons and safes with delivery for all residence life buildings on campus.
