3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus so I don't know about dorm life.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Queens College has an amazing campus. It can be overwhelming trying to get to certain buildings but it is the best way as a city kid to have the best of both worlds being in the city but still having a large campus. The school is extremely diverse, feels like a huge melting pot. I have had some issues with the offices such as admissions and bursar but it's like that at most schools. There is so many student activities offered, there should be no reason anyone should be bored. Most of the professors genuinely want to make sure the students are learning and helping them the best way they can. Overall, I do not regret transferring here and intend on enjoying my last couple of years here.

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus. In a way it would be advantageous as everything is right there within your reach. You save money by not getting a car but at the same time you spend it paying the college for room and board. I probably would grow faster emotionally and gain much indepence but I would miss the beautiful house I live in now and seeing my family and four paws brothers every day.

QC just built a new dormitory in 2009 called the Summit, and it's the school's first residence hall. Students say the building was built in a hurry and is poorly maintained, but the dorm offers a number of resources and facilities to students, including a fitness center, wireless Internet, bike racks, laundry facilities, music practice rooms, and a flex space for events and seminars. Students may live with a roommate for about $4,700 or pay up to $7,500 for their own room. Several QC students work as residential assistants (RAs) at the dorms and their job is not only to ensure safety and security amongst students, but to also plan events encouraging students to get involved on campus. RAs are unpaid, but they are provided with their own apartment.

Each room in the Summit includes a common living area, a kitchen, and a bath. Students’ rooms are furnished with in-room control of heat and air conditioning. The kitchenette consists of a full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, and sink. Pricing includes all utilities, including wireless Internet, basic cable, and a ten-month contract (although shorter and longer terms may be available). There is an optional meal plan available through Chartwells at an additional price. Parking is also available through Public Safety for an additional fee. The buildings are supervised 24 hours a day, and student support services are provided for students living on campus. Students may also live in the dorms during school breaks.
