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."
