1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it is terrible living situation freshman year and no other options are available

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Well, I'm a first year, so I stay in NewMens. It's crappy. But I love it because the vast majority of freshman guys stay here and its nothing to go to one of their rooms. Plus it's connected to the first year girls dorm which is great ;)

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The honors dorms are spacious however pretty rundown.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Most students live on campus, due mainly to the convenience and overall quality of the housing options. The dorms won't blow you away, but they are all well-maintained, clean, and roomy. Some of the newer options, including two brand new green-friendly dorms and on-campus apartments, are more expensive but very nice.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Except for freshmen dorms, the dorms are pretty nice, although it's not like living at home.

All students at Birmingham-Southern are required to live on campus until they are 21 or are of junior status, unless they are local and can live with family. This means that you end up getting to know the people that you go to school with very well. Living on campus is the most convenient option because everything is within walking distance of the dorms, and though the dorms themselves are by no means lavish or impressive, they are equipped with all the necessary things for college life. Some of the dorms include movable furniture, and all of the rooms have a great view of the mountains outside. Each dorm has its own computer lab and free laundry, which are probably the two best features. Also, the Residence Life staff is very receptive to student requests, and they are always trying to find ways to get the halls closer to one another. The RAs, especially, are welcoming and act more like friends than authority figures. Finally, if you plan on living on campus, you're pretty much guaranteed to have somewhere to stay all four years, because room shortages are not very common. There are also several different styles of dorm living. Some people like living in suites with their friends, while others prefer only one roommate or a single. Either way, there are different options for everyone to try.
