4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are community style until you are a Junior or Senior and at that point have shown that you are more than capable of cleaning and taking care of your own kitchen and bathroom. It is a privilege.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are (usually) clean and large, but most of them are older. Don't expect to get a shiny new dorm as a freshman.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Love Ford Music Building!!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's very convenient being within, at most, a 10-minute walking distance of all of my classes. On-campus housing is a bit pricey, and only a select few seniors and occasional juniors are allowed to live off campus. They want to keep most students on campus to help create a sense of unity and closeness.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is great! However, other dorms are old and need to be refurbished!

In an effort to build community, Berry has mandated that all students who do not meet specific requirements (live within 40 miles of campus, are 25 or older, married, or are a fifth-year senior) must live on campus. Many students are not fond of the decision and will gladly tell you about it. With class sizes increasing every year, Berry has made many adjustments to accommodate students. But don’t come to Berry expecting a five-star hotel, despite the price. Living on campus is expensive, even if most residence halls are close to academic buildings, which is a huge benefit. It’s nice to know you can wake up 10 minutes before your class starts and make it there without being late. This is a feature many off-campus students wish they had, as many are late when they do not live at Berry. Housing does have its pros and cons and is truly what you make of it. Residential living is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and something you will never forget.

For freshmen, the most common housing placements are Morton and Lemley, which both house women, and Dana, which houses freshman and upperclassman men and women. In addition, there is Centennial, the most prized dorm on campus, that houses two to four people, each with their own room, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a living room. Centennial is also the most expensive dorm, but it's worth the investment. Thomas Berry houses upperclassman women and has a small kitchen and bathroom shared between two to four people. Thomas Berry is the cheapest place to live on campus, aside from the Townhouses. The Townhouses are considered the dirtiest places to live by many. They do not have a professional cleaning staff available to them three days per week, like the rest of the dorms do, but they go fairly quickly at room selection.
