3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The non-senior dorms seem very crammed. However RAs are there to help and improve your stay anyway they can

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are decent size, but the college could invest in money to make fantastic dorm rooms. As you increase the years in college I've noticed that other colleges, you have apartment building or you live in a suite, but at the college, you just become isolated into a single room. I can't stand the fact that in any dorm room there are mice and cockroaches all over the resident buildings. The college has a great view, USE IT! They could do so much with things around them, but personally I feel that they don't want to invest in the students. The social atmosphere well, it's a small school so, just imagine. Word gets around fast! The fact that I am paying so much 20 grand+ for a college like Mount Saint Vincent, is rediculous. If I were not too late in the curriculum and didn't have other problems going on I would have transferred in less then a heart beat!

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: I am honestly not every fond of forming due to the people. It's okay but it definitely could be better, I much rather travel back and forth home but due to class schedule being most at night it's not possible also practice are at night

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's alright depending on what type of room you have.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't dorm but I have friends that do. Avg. size rooms but its annoying as a commuter to go visit friends, somewhat of a hassle

The College of Mount Saint Vincent offers five residence halls to choose from. Living on campus is extremely convenient for students who wish to have easy access to classes, dining halls, the library, club meetings, the fitness center, and dance studio. It also gives students plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle with their fellow students at any given time. However, campus housing can be a burden to pay for and does not always provide the peace and cleanliness you may desire.

Students agree that Seton is the best place to live on campus, but it is only offered to upperclassmen. It comes fully equipped with communal kitchens, bathrooms, and lounges, just like the other four halls, but sets itself apart with its central air system and Italian Renaissance style. On the other hand, Alumnae was voted the worst place to reside due to its small size and unsanitary living conditions. As for location, none of the halls are really at an inconvenience because the campus is so small, so students are able to reach their classes easily, despite some minor complaints about the hills they must walk up and down.
