3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is regularly good. Very few problems with just the social atmosphere. Dorm life is a growing part of being in college, you learn a lot about yourself as well as a lot about others around you.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Residence Life – The housing on campus is not good, but they are trying their best to make it better.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on Cheyney campus is ok, nothing that great. We have five dorms and we are building another that will be open next year. Most of the dorms are pretty old. The tution for me here is $25,000 but it is going up for next year. I struggle a lot to pay this. The social atmosphere is okay, it has its moments.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on Campus Can Be Fun and Distracting – If you are a very focused and driven person all the influences on campus re4ally wouldn't be a problem. If you like to follow the crowd a college campus is not a good look. You have people on the campus that just likes to study all day while on the other hand you have people that skip class and party. you just have to make a decision on which category you fall under.

There are five dormitories on campus. The elevators in some of the dorms are very old, and when students hold them for long periods of time, they tend to get stuck or break down and, on average, it takes a day to a week to get them fixed.

On-campus housing is guaranteed for all students, and there are no off-campus buildings through the school for students to live in. Other options for students include paying for a single room or the possibility of being in a triple, which is so rare that it teeters on the point of nonexistence. Of the five dormitories, Emlen, King, and Truth are considered to be the favorites among students.
