After finals come to a close at UNT, most dorm residents are required to pack up their things and either head home or find a new place to live. But, there is still a handful of students who choose to stay on campus while they take Maymester and summer classes.

For those students, Legends and College Inn remain open.

Nine months at Legends Hall is $5,960, while a room during the Maymester costs roughly $430 and about $840 for the summer sessions. At College Inn, the nine-month fall and spring semesters cost $5,080, while during Maymester a room is either $307 or $360, depending on the size of the room, and $613 or $720 during summer sessions. Meal plans are only available during the two summer sessions, and like fall sessions, flex dollars do not roll over from session to session.

Computer science student and Legends Hall resident Allison Goins said she chose to live on campus through the summer because she does not have a car and lives too far away.

“I am from Austin and I will be here for the Maymester and Summer 1 sessions taking classes,” Goins said. “After that, I will be going home when I am done with those classes. My roommate won’t be here until Summer 1 starts, so I will be by myself most of the time.”

College Inn Residential Assistant and Speech and Language Pathology student Briana Rena is going on her fourth year of being an RA and said the demand for students living on campus is lower during summer time than during the fall or spring semesters.

“There are a lot of empty rooms in this hall, but we are also hosting staff members like me,” Rena said. “Private rooms are usually the first rooms to go. This is a unique building, with the outside style rather than inside like the rest of the dorms. It kind of always seems quiet.”

Legends Hall and College Inn will also be hosting programs every month for the RA’s.

Cheryl Elliott is a desk clerk at Legends Hall and said the hall is quiet now, but she doesn’t think it will be as quiet when the athletes come back to campus for training.

“Student athletes will start coming in during Summer 1,” Elliott said. “It’s quiet anyways since we have mostly upperclassmen, but I am looking forward to meeting the new football players and watching the games this fall.”

In Legends Hall there is a total of 276 beds, but currently there are only 50 in use.

“When the fall semester starts, football players will go back to Victory Hall, and basketball players will go back to Mozart Hall,” Elliott said. “And the swimmers will stay here.”

German and Psychology student Kiana Moore is an RA at Legends and said she will stay in Legends all summer to avoid making the long commute back to her home in Arkansas.

“I just didn’t want to go all the way home and come back,” Moore said. “It’s really quiet right now. There is usually a few people hanging out in the lobby, but now I never see anyone.”
