Each 6-person apartment shares a locked mailbox in the lobby and packages sent to the building can be picked up from hall staff (make sure your apartment number is on all your mail).
Each apartment has a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, and microwave. There is ample storage space in cabinets for food items and plateware. Dishes, bowls, glasses, and silverware are provided, though some past participants have also used disposable supplies to avoid cleaning dishes every day or so. Obviously, your experience may vary.
There are two full-bathrooms in each apartment. You will need to supply your own toilet paper, soaps, rugs, and towels. WISH Woodly Park will supply shower curtains if they’re not already there when you move in.

There is an elevator in the building. It won’t break any speed records, but it’s great when moving heavy or large items or when you come back from an exhausting day and don’t feel like trudging up the stairs.
The Center supposedly has WiFi, but you’ll need a miracle to get regular access, especially above the second floor. Each bedroom and the common room in every apartment have ethernet jacks and you can set up your own wireless router if you are desperate for good mobile access.
In the basement there is a coin-op laundry room (beware of the phantom dryers that spin, but don’t heat up; if you are unlucky enough to use one of them, post a note on the machine so other residents know), basic vending machines, and a computer center. The computer center is great for students who don’t have a laptop since bringing a desktop PC is awkward (each apartment has two desks, total, and they’re in the common room not always in good computing locations) and is al
