2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorm buildings are pretty old. The rooms are fairly small. There are no private bathrooms; everything is shared. Which means it gets pretty dirty. There's little sense of community between a group of random strangers on a floor.

Campus Housing: There are good and bad dorms. Some are very spacious while others are not at all. It is nice to live in a dorm with a dining center in it. Floor programs in the dorms are nice to get to know others. Most people are very social.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are pretty good the only thing people choose them over is whether or not they have a dining hall inside of them and if they will it their head on the ceiling when in bed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Buildings are kind of old, dorm rooms could have more room. Not to far from classes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the campus housing. Recently, they have been renewing bathrooms and other place in housing. Each floor in dorms have their own theme. It keeps it fun and decorative. Also, everyone is so friendly and learn how to become a family with their floor. Floors in dorms also coordinate events that they can go to together as a floor. You have different options available when it comes to choosing where you want to live. There are single dorms if you want to live on your own and there are also regular dorms where you have a roommate. There are people like RA's on every floor that will help keep things together and safe. Also, the janitors are great! They help keep the floor and bathrooms clean everyday and there are people you can call if you need a quick clean up. You will be very satisfied wherever you choose to live.

Bradley dorms are pretty typical—they're average in size, decently maintained, and relatively clean. Some people complain that living in Bradley's dorms is like living in a jail cell, and others say they don't mind them at all. Either way, they're livable, and people get by because it's college, and students get used to sharing a small space with another person who doesn't necessarily have the same schedule, habits, or interests as them. One great aspect of living on campus is that the dorms are close to everything. Students can roll out of bed at 9:50 a.m. and get to class by 10. If anything happens on campus, the dorms are not too far from the action.

Though Bradley's housing isn't notable for anything, the experience students get while living in the dorms is essential to the college experience. Students who go to Bradley are generally friendly, and living in the dorms accelerates that. Dorm floors become a sort of clan, and the friendships students make their first year usually last throughout the rest of college, if not the rest of their lives. Living in the dorms is also a nice medium between living at home with your parents and living in the real world. A service takes care of cleaning the bathrooms, and the dining halls make the food, yet students have the freedom to come home when they want and clean whenever they feel like it. The dorms facilitate normal college living, but if one word could sum up Bradley's housing, it would be "ordinary."
