Campus Housing: CMC is in the process of renovating all of their dorms. The already renovated dorms look great!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are beautiful, most are horrible, tiny, and old.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Lots of options, newly renovated dorms, great atmosphere, great lounges. The dorms are great. Live in north campus if you want to rage all day every day.... Or live in south quad for a quieter more relaxed dorm and walk like 30 seconds to the party.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in campus is extremely convenient and easy considering I go to a small school. Everything is relatively close and a lot of the dorms are currently having renovations done to them.

CMC is a small campus, but the types of dorms vary a lot. There are dorms for those who love to party, dorms for people who love to study, and dorms for people who are somewhere in between.

There are three basic areas that most students live in: North Quad, Mid Quad, and South Quad. North Quad is definitely the most social of any of the dorm regions; any night of the week, you can find someone partying in North Quad. North Quad dorms are suite style (four doubles and a bathroom).

Mid Quad is a marriage between North and South Quad: sometimes it parties, and sometimes it’s quiet. It’s a popular place for freshmen to live because it's so easy to meet people. Mid Quad dorms are hall style, with a mix of singles and doubles sharing a big central bathroom.

South Quad is the quietest place on campus; with mostly upperclassmen, it has a more serious air. South Quad also has Stark Hall, which is the only substance-free dorm on campus. South Quad dorms are called “The Towers” because they are eight floors (six higher than any other building on campus) with 12 people (a mix of singles and doubles) on each floor with a central bathroom.

For seniors, there are really nice four-person apartments on the edge of campus, which are part of student housing.Dorm size and quality varies a lot, as some buildings have been recently renovated and others are due for improvements.
