Valley B (Formerly Missions B)

Valley B LLC: Advocate

Valley B has been adjusted for the 2020-21 academic year to all single rooms. Each floor has a total of 18 residents, with two shared bathrooms, with two shower stalls, two toilets and two sinks in most bathrooms. All residents on the floor share these bathrooms.

 

Renovated Summer 2020! - Valley B was just renovated with new flooring (all tile flooring, no carpet), new furniture, and new bathroom vanities. The new furniture offers added benefits, such as electrical outlets in both the bed frames and the desks, and a beautiful, wooden design.  Please note, the height of this bed is not able to be adjusted (bed risers do not support these beds).

 

Missions B

The Valley B Community is a designated first year area. Valley B is co-ed by floor and consists of four, three-story buildings designed in a Spanish style. Along with the 200 first year residents living in this complex, a Community Director (CD), 12 Resident Assistants (RAs), and a Resident Minister (RM) also call Valley B home.

Each floor houses approximately 18 residents in fully tiled single rooms and provides two furnished lounge areas. Each resident has an extra-long twin bed [80 in.], chest of drawers, desk and chair. In addition, each room has wireless internet access. There are two bathroom areas on each floor with toilets, sinks and showers, which are cleaned by university staff regularly. The third floor rooms have window seats and the four buildings surround a grassy courtyard with a beautiful magnolia tree. The University Alcohol Policy designates Valley B as a no-alcohol living area regardless of age or class status.

For a look at what the set up of a room looked like previously, view some photos of Valley B. New photos of the renovated will be posted soon!
