I love living in the dorms. THe amenities are good even though the buildings are old. THey have been updated most of them with new paint and carpet. The rooms are small but the common areas are decent but could use more couches on each floor. Social atomosphere is good, that's why we need more couches. It's just way too expensive.
Housing on campus is very nice with exceptions depending on the dorms. Resident Assistants are always friendly and helpful with any and all problems and bathrooms and living areas are usually very clean.
This is the major downfall of my school! The dorm I stayed in my freshman year was extremely small and for the cost of housing, it was terrible! It's one of the main reasons I decided to live at home and commute.
Campus housing really is not available at Ashland unless you bend the rules. You also have to be 22 to have a house on campus, or you have to be a commuter. Also, our campus is a dry campus, so their are very strict on those rules within the dorms, and everywhere on campus.
The freshman dorms at Ashland are kind of small but I found them to be adequate for me and my roommate. We lived in a double in Clark which is a popular freshman all-girls dorm. The other girls on our floor were fantastic and our RA was amazing.
All of the dorms are pretty close to campus, it just depends on where you want to be. Kem and Amstutz are close to the football field and dining hall but are a little separated from the rest of campus. Clark, Kil, Meyers, and Jacobs are all very close to most of the classrooms and although their older are still really nice. The Senior Apartments are pretty big and are very nice.
The only real issue with Ashland housing is that you have to live on campus all four years unless you are married, have a kid or are over the age of 22.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
