3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are just like everything else, small and cramped but everyone usually has to suffer through it. Greek Towers or an apartment are your best bets.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is not awesome. My first dorm was terrible but where I lived my second year was better. The buildings are old.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My first dorm that I stayed in, the rooms were fairly small and not that great, but the dorm I am staying in now is great.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't currently live on campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are in good condition. But if you live in Keene hall it is a farther walk. A lot of the people are nice and social. Our gym is amazing. New equipment, an indoor track, basketball courts, and we also have people who can set up a training schedule for you.

Housing at Eastern Kentucky University is really convenient for students. Most of the residence halls are just a short walk to most classroom buildings, so students can easily roll out of bed and be on their way to class. Students rank the age of the buildings, amenities, and cleanliness of the dorms as average. However, students say that the community within the halls is good, as is the social atmosphere. There are always different things going on inside the dorms, from cookouts to video game tournaments and root beer pong. The Living and Learning Communities also do a lot to help students meet new people, and they have fun and safe things to do throughout the semester.

Some would say that the process of obtaining a room is a little complicated, but after the first year, the process gets easier and less stressful. Students get to register for their living space in late February, and there are different registration days based on class rank. The entire process can be done online. Space of the dorms is dependent on the residence hall, but students also rate this as average. Strictness of living in the dorms is seen as good by most, and students agree that it is a decent value living in on-campus housing, although some apartments can be cheaper for upperclassmen students.

Did You Know?
Living and Learning Communities allow students with similar interests to live in the same location, which helps students make friends and succeed at college. Some communities require students to participate in a certain number of programs per semester. If a student does not meet the requirements, they will be asked to move out of the community to another part of the building or a different dorm.
