3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally do not live in a dorm but just going into one they are your average dorm. Most do not have air conditioning which makes it uncomfortable in the summer and fall months.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are not that bad. They are renovating some of the older dorms that did not have AC.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshmen dorms for guys are dirty, for girls is ok. But for both the space is very limited the worst thing of all is the visitation law. The guys can't stay over night in the girls dorm and there is am extremely small chance for you to have a single room.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not all dorms at Berea have air conditioning yet, so that could be an issue for some. Tips: bring at least one fan if you're in such a dorm. Also, some dorms are farther from the center of campus than others, which could also be a problem. However, time management is key when going to and from the dorm on a tight schedule.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: They are pretty much average. The buildings are a bit older so it makes it hard to enjoy as a freshman considering the dorms have no air conditioning. The cost is fantastic because most students don't have to pay anything but otherwise it's average. There are many different cultures and people from all over so it makes for a nice variety of backgrounds.

The College's dorms are not too bad. Since most students at Berea come from lower-economic backgrounds, the dorms are an improvement from what many students may have been used to in the past. The women’s dorms are really comfortable and a joy to live in, except for Seabury, and the men’s dorms are really comfortable, except Bingham and Dana. Blue Ridge is a great place to live but is far from campus, which can get annoying. The most wanted dorms are Kentucky-Talcott and Edwards, but the other dorms are fine to live in, as well.

Most of the rooms in the dorms are spacious and provide enough room to satisfy a student when it comes to comfort. The dorms are usually clean, but there will always be that one person who is a little messy. No matter where you go, living in a different place is always awkward at first, but once a student adjusts, they’ll see that the dorms are quite nice here. Berea College housing is more than enough for the needs of the students.
