What is FLEX?
Flex is preloaded money on your SHU ID Card that can be spent in both of our dining facilities. It’s like a debit card for food. Each time a purchase is made, the sale amount is deducted from the account balance. You can add to your Flex account at any time by making a payment in our Student Accounts Office. (All deposits have a $25 minimum.)
Flex can be used in multiple ways:
Flex is a great way to make sure you are not caught short for a meal or snack! It’s simple and convenient.
Flex Dollars carry over semester to semester if you carry over the same meal plan, but are not refunded at the end of the academic year.
Seton Hill takes the safety of its students very seriously. The Residence Life staff works hand-in-hand with Campus Police to provide a secure, supportive environment for student residents.
Each resident is given a key card (also referred to as a swipe card) to access his/her residence hall. This prevents outsiders from entering the halls. Visitors must be with a resident while in the building. Residents may request to have overnight visitors through the Office of Residence Life (for more information, contact the Office of Residence Life).
Each residence hall on campus is equipped with a fire alarm system. Residence Life reserves the right to hold a fire drill at any time to assure that residents follow procedure correctly. The Resident Assistants will go over proper fire exiting procedures during their first floor meetings and each room has fire exiting procedures on the inside of the door.
Community Standards are implemented on campus in the residence halls at Seton Hill. Each floor will set up their own standards for living (visitation, alcohol, and fire procedures are non-negotiable) which usually include keeping the lounge and kitchen areas as well as the bathrooms in proper condition.
The Office of Residence Life has found a convenient, affordable way to ensure that you have sheets that will fit the extra-long mattresses in our residence halls. The Residence Hall Linens program has all your campus living needs, from extra long twin sheets and comforters to matching towels and storage items. Free shipping is available on all Value Pak orders, and there are more than 40 color combinations to choose from. Proceeds from this program are used for programming in the residence halls at Seton Hill. Please visit the RHL website for more information.
