4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms are fairly open and friendly when it comes to meeting people. Upperclassmen dorms and apartments however are not.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I hear it can be fun.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in a new residence hall on campus and love that the facility is new. The rooms are small just like other dorms but the layout and common rooms offer a great chance to socialize.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Houses and dorms are great and comfortable. The housing process sucks! It is so difficult to make sure you have just the right amount of people and on campus housing is not guaranteed for upperclassmen.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing lottery system and registration could be a little more organized/ easy to use especially for new students. It is pretty confusing at first.

Nearly everyone would agree that Gonzaga's policy requiring all freshmen and most sophomores to live in dorms is good. They are the center of social life. If upperclassmen look back with fond nostalgia, it's solely because of the friendships forged and times enjoyed, not the small rooms, grungy tiles and carpets, and communal showers. In one respect, it doesn’t really matter which dorm you live in—every dorm has discomforts, and you'll probably build a strong circle of friends. But there are significant differences in atmosphere between dorms. If you fancy yourself a partier or socialite, live in a big dorm (C/M, DeSmet, Welch, Madonna). If you desire a small, tightly-knit community, try Campion, Alliance, or Lincoln. If having a pleasant, quiet living space is your top priority, go with Dillon or Goller. If you don't particularly like people, Dooley and Chardin give you the anonymity you seek.

Because there is a lot of competition for good on-campus accommodations, it can be difficult to get the housing you desire. Thus, many students choose to get off campus as soon as possible. Once they're out of the dorms, however, students realize how good dorm life was—free cable and heat, pre-furnished rooms, and friends a few feet away. While not priceless, the dorms have strong selling points.
