3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think the dorms are nice, but for $10,000 a year, they're not nice enough. I understand the dorms are unique because they've been around for decades, but updates need to be made! Students should not be charged this much money when they can't even get on an elevator without it getting stuck between floors.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love living on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not the best, but the rooms are nice

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are wonderful not the prices.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: As far as first-year dorms are concerned, Walters is definitely the better one of the two. For upperclasswomen, Main and Rebekah's rooms are all very spacious, but it is important to keep in mind that they only have central heating, and no air conditioning. All the rest of the residence halls (and apartments off campus) have A/C, though.

The dorms on campus are fairly spacious and fully furnished. The buildings are kept clean and well maintained by the custodial staff. The facilities themselves are old and do need updating, but there is nothing about these dorms that makes them uninhabitable. In fact, the outsides of the dorms are very taken care of. Two of the six dorms, Main and Rebekah, do not have air conditioning, and this is often the biggest complaint from residents in these dorms. Currently, there is only heat in these two buildings, and the College is looking to renovate the central air conditioning soon. All of the dorms, except for Avery Glen and the theme houses, are close to all of the academic buildings on campus. It will literally take you less than five minutes to walk to more than half of the academic buildings from wherever you are housed on campus. The walk from Avery Glen to campus is approximately five minutes, but an extra five minutes is needed if you are to get to class on time. The same goes for the theme houses. Although the walks are very short, residents of these off-campus buildings should allow themselves extra time when going to class.

All of the dorms are subject to quiet hours, with the exception of the apartments and theme houses, so they are all fairly quiet. There is no one dorm on campus that is known for partying; however, the apartments are definitely known for their parties and for being fairly loud. More people go off campus to hang out in the apartments on the weekends, holidays, or special occasions than they do in their own dorms.

Did You Know?
  • Agnes Scott "Main" Hall was built in 1891, and is the oldest building on campus. It was named after Agnes Scott, who was George W. Scott's mother.
  • Agnes Scott "Main" Hall houses the bell tower, which is home to an old Agnes tradition. When seniors learn of their acceptance into graduate school or receive their first job offer, they will climb to the bell tower and ring the bell to announce their success, so residents often hear the bell well.
  • Agnes sits parallel with a train track. The train comes about twice during the day and twice during the night. If residents of Rebekah, Main, and Inman don't close their windows, the train will be all they hear.
  • All students are expected to live in campus housing for the duration of their time at the College.
  • At the end of your first year at Agnes, you will pick your own roommate and participate in a housing lottery which will determine your housing assignment for the following academic year. Students are given points based on their class year and whether or not their forms and fees are taken care of on time. These points determine the student's priority in the housing lottery.
  • First-year housing and roommates are assigned by the school.

The best spaces in Main are the triple rooms located in the "tower" portion of the building. These rooms are spacious, well lit, and airy. Main doesn't have air conditioning; however, it's nestled among large, old trees, so there's always shade and a breeze.

There is a laundry room that's located in the basement.

The first floor is used as office space, and the second and third floors are student dormitories.

Rebekah's best features are the full-length porch, rocking chairs and magnolia trees included, and a "smoking deck," which is located on the second floor. The fact there is no air conditioning in this building doesn't deter Scotties from choosing it as their home. Its spacious layout and Southern charm make up for the little it lacks.

The laundry room is located in the basement.

Campus-Owned ApartmentsWhat's This?

Avery Glen Apartments
Floors: 3
Number of Units: 10-24
Bathrooms: Private
Coed: No, women only
Residents: Upperclassmen
Room Types: One- and two-bedroom apartments (singles, doubles)
Special Features: The apartments are a gated, pool community, so you will have access to the pool as well as parking within the complex. The apartments for Agnes residents are furnished and carpeted. There is also a kitchen in each student apartment which includes an oven, stove top, dishwasher, and microwave. The lease includes Wi-Fi access, telephone services, and basic cable. The apartments are fully carpeted, have heat and air conditioning, and a security system.
Agnes Scott College does not own the Avery Glen apartment complex, so there are other residents who live there other than Agnes Scott students. The apartment complex has a deal with the College that allows Agnes residents to board at a discounted rate. You will sign a year lease for the apartment at the beginning of the school year. This lease is a legal and binding contract not only with the school, but also the landlord. Despite the fact the apartment is already furnished, it doesn't come with a washer and dryer unit; these units are available for rental, though.
