Are there studies on each floor?
No, there are not studies on each floor. However, there is a large group study located on the first floor that is available for group or individual study. The lobby is also open for studying purposes. 

Is the basement off limits?
Yes, the basement is off limits. However, residents who choose to loft their bed pick up the additional loft pieces found in loft storage located in the basement. International storage is also located in the basement in which out-of-state residents (excluding Minnesota) can store 2 pieces of luggage. Access to loft storage and international storage is only during specified times during the academic year. Other basement spaces are university storage and mechanical rooms which are off-limits to residents.

How are suites chosen?
There is a suite selection night. During this event, residents pick the suite that they will be living in the following academic year. The following is the order in which the residents are able to pick suites.  First priority goes to residents who want to return to the same suite, then current Reuter residents that want to switch suites to another suite, and then individuals who have not lived in Reuter before. Because of an increased satisfaction level among residents who select their own suitemates, groups of four receive a higher priority within the sign up process, before groups of two or three sign up.
