3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. Not too bad just a little too expensive. Students find themselves obtaining loans to pay for room and board. It is not out of this world so it should not cost this much. Overall, housing is not bad, but could use some improvement.

Campus Housing: I love living at barry. I was on my own, meet new people, experience many new things just by being right there when it all happens

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: some dorms are better than others,cost is average,for the most part its asocial atmosphere.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The best options of dorming, must be the upper class man buildings such as Dominican, Benni, and Kolasa, but they are only for sophomores, juniors and seniors. The worse has to be Holly house, which is an apartment styled dorm located four blocks away from campus, but it is seriously run down mold in the bathrooms, kitchens and sometimes rooms. The showers, toilets and sinks have to be at least 30 years old, it just disgusting! Not only that but it is located in the worse part of the neighborhood, with barely any security. not safe to walk around after 7 only.

Barry University has eight on-campus halls and several off-campus housing facilities. Freshmen have several choices, including Dalton-Dunspaugh and Weber, which are for first-years only. Dalton-Dunspaugh is coed but is divided into male and female wings with huge rooms, lots of closet space, and daily cleaning services. Dalton is made up of suites, with every two rooms sharing a bathroom, and Dunspaugh residents share a community bathroom. Weber Hall houses female first-year students. There are many room types to choose from in Weber Hall—the singles are really nice, and the shared rooms are huge. If you're lucky, you will get a room with an amazing view of the pool, the palm trees, and the horizon. Weber also has a game room with pool tables, televisions, couches, and more. Browne, Flood, and Sage halls house both freshmen and upperclassmen, and there are no community bathrooms here—a bathroom is shared between two rooms. John and Neta Kolasa Hall and Benincasa Hall, which are mirror images of each other, are for upperclassmen. They each have singles and doubles, which come with their own private bathrooms.

There are also University-owned apartments for students. Holly House Apartments, about two blocks from main campus, offers one- or two-bedroom units with full kitchens. The complex has gated-access, a pool, and onsite laundry facilities. Saint Catherine Apartments are across the street from Barry and offer basically the same amenities as Holly House, but residents also get reserved parking. University Villa Apartments offers housing to female students only. Barry also offers theme housing, which is reserved for clubs and organizations, like sororities and fraternities.
