My wife and I are a couple of first-timers assigned to Canyon. Realizing the answers might vary depending on the dorm or room, would you folks weigh in on a couple of topics?

Are the dorms at a comfortable temperature most of the time?

Do they attempt to have couples in rooms with double beds or are all rooms equipped with a pair of twin beds?

Is there a dresser or drawers? Is there a desk?

Finally, what thing do you think we'll most likely wish we had brought (or regret bringing)?

The Canyon dorms look the same...

actually the couples room is better then  single rooms you have your own bathroom  its either an queen size or king size  bed

There is no a/c so in the heat of the summer the rooms can get pretty warm

There are a limited number of rooms with double beds and we usually try to save these for couples but there is a chance that you will have 2 twins that can be pushed together if you choose.

The rooms should all have a dresser for each person. Desks can be hit or miss i'm not sure if the canyon dorms do.

I would definitely recommend bringing a fan and at least one surge protector as there are limited outlets in the rooms and they aren't always in the most convenient  places

Thank you all.
