4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are mediocre but the upperclassmen apartments are fantastic. Spacious and brand new. Maintenance requests are met quickly and efficiently.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's simple and easy. Very friendly.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on-campus and so I cannot give a good review or any review for that matter as to how dorm life is here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like that it is small. You get to meet a lot of people.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't like that you are forced to live in the dorms for 2 years and either in the dorms or on-campus apartments for the 3rd year. Only the first year should be mandatory for living on-campus

The dorms are conveniently located near the academic buildings, and the campus apartments are a short walk or bike ride from classes. Campus housing is very friendly with an "open door" atmosphere, even in the apartments. It's especially important to live in the dorms for the first year or two—many students who don't find they miss out on a lot. Some students dislike that they have to live on campus for three years. On one hand, campus housing is usually paid for with your tuition, so you can bundle it in with your loans and not worry about rent. However, you will pay for it eventually, and the cost is not difficult to meet or beat off campus.

Students can agree on one aspect of the dorms that isn't so appealing: from 6 p.m. until 12 a.m. on weekdays and until 2 a.m. on weekends, there is a desk-sitter in the lobby of the dorms, and guys have to sign into girls' rooms and vice versa. After visitation times are up, guys and girls can't be in each other's rooms until after 10 a.m. or they'll receive a hefty fine (this rule doesn't apply to honors houses or apartments). Anyone can still hang out in the main lobby of Altman after hours because of its coed residency, which is a perk for that dorm. While the downfalls of campus housing may make you think Hastings College tries to hold your hand, the social perks of on-campus housing pretty much trump that sentiment.

There are a variety of honors houses located on campus, housing anywhere from 5 to 8 students. The houses are not coed, and residents have to have a campus meal plan like dorm residents. The houses include: 710 House, 714 House, MacKay House, 1003 Pine Knoll House, and 903 Pine Knoll House.
Did You Know?
  • All Hastings College students are required to live on campus until they have senior standing and have lived on campus for six semesters. Students who are part-time, married, single parents, older than 23, have an associate degree, or who live with a parent/legal guardian in Adams County are exempt from this rule.
  • Students can rank their housing preference on their housing form. Freshmen are required to live in the dorms, but sophomores in good standing can apply to live in an honors house. If there is room, one unit in the Bronco Apartments will be set aside for sophomores and will be designated as non-alcoholic. Most sophomores stay in the dorms, most juniors live in an honors house or the Bronco Apartments, and seniors have the option of moving off campus.
  • Every dorm has a resident director, an adult who lives there full-time. There is also a resident assistant on every floor of every dorm, and this upperclassman lives there and is responsible for enforcing dorm rules.
  • Students living in the dorms and honors houses are required to have a weekly meal plan on campus. Students living in the on-campus apartments or off campus are not required to have a meal plan, but students can purchase a weekly meal plan or the more popular 60-block meal plan to be used at any time.
