3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of Elons housing is farther from academic buildings but are very nice

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Some of the housing is spectacular, other housing isn't as great. Overall, it's pretty good in terms of community and building conditions. Global and Colonnades don't have much a community but the buildings are amazing. Danieley is SO far away but the community is apparently great. The Historic District locations (Virginia, Sloan, Carolina, Smith, HBB) have the best locations EVER, but the quality of the living conditions vary.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Now we don't live in 5 star hotels, but our dorms are pretty radical!! I love our options and I especially love the upperclassmen apartment options!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Colonnades as a freshman, Oaks as a sophomore and next year I am living in Avalion. I have been very lucky all three of these places have wash and dryers, a kitchen and are a short walk from my classes!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living "on campus" doesn't really narrow down the living situations - on campus housing differs greatly from place to place. Historic campus seems to have a really strong sense of community in the dorms; Colonnades not as much. Danieley is an entirely different world: students seems to get very close with the people in their apartment complex and no one else. Danieley and Historic seem like great places for a good social atmosphere, but Danieley is extremely far away. Colonnades is the nicest: new, spacious, and clean.

When I first walked into my brother’s dorm at Notre Dame University, I thought I would die in college. It was about the third of the size of my room at home, and two people had to live in it! But when I saw the rooms at Elon University, my fears quickly vanished. Although no dorm could ever really have all the space most students crave, the rooms at Elon are big enough to fit most, if not all, of your needs. The Colonnades offer brand-new state-of-the-art single rooms or suite-style complexes with a quieter work environment. Danieley Center is a community in itself and offers a chance for students to live with up to eight people. Carolina and West are some of girls’ favorites, and the boys love the Smith dorm. During the holidays, residence life holds a variety of events and competition for the “areas”; often giving out some pretty neat prizes.

On the whole, Elon has some pretty nice dorms. You’ll find that laundry facilities are almost always busy, but this is the case almost anywhere. One concern for some is that none of the dorms have elevators. This can make moving in and out a more difficult task and will ensure that you’ll have to lug a suitcase up and down the stairs every time you’re going home for the weekend. But, there are handicap-accessible rooms on the first floors of many dorms, and none of the buildings are taller than three stories. These drawbacks are relatively minor compared to the beautiful housing facilities Elon provides for its student body. Elon students can rest assured in their extra-long twin beds that they’re getting one of the best deals around when it comes to campus housing.
