5 College Senior

Campus Housing: On campus living is great. The social atmosphere is very good as their is great unity among those who share dorms. Convenience to get to classes and dining halls is very good and within minutes to walk to.

Campus Housing: Lots of room, great furniture

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is beautiful and spacious. Just wish they had more base level housing options.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: HPU has some of the best housing I have seen from many colleges. There are so many options to choose from set up wise and price wise. Even the standard dorms are awesome and spacious!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorms on campus and my favorite is University Center (well, I guess it is technically called Wanek Center now). I am going to live there with my current roommate next year. I am looking forward to being close to the Farmers Market, the Point, the Learning Commons and near most of my classes. I like that everyone hangs outside of the dorms when the weather is nice.

On-campus housing at High Point is incredible! All of the dorms have either been recently renovated or are brand-new. Living at High Point is unlike living in any other college dorm. The college housing is beautifully maintained, spacious, and upgraded. Even the standard dorms on campus are nicer than what most college students live in during all four years of school. All on-campus housing is extremely convenient when it comes to getting to and from classes. Since High Point is a smaller school, the longest walk you might have from your dorm to class would be about 10 minutes, walking at a leisurely pace from one side of campus to the other. The University Center is probably the most convenient location in which to live. Encased in one huge building are three different eateries, a movie theater, arcade, and a study floor. Also, since the campus is so rapidly expanding, the UC moves ever closer to becoming the actual center of campus.

If you live off campus, it is a little less convenient to get to class, but that’s only because you have to drive or take the trolley. If you live off campus, then it is beneficial to have your car at school with you so you can come and go from campus as you please. If you don’t have a car or just don’t feel like having one at school, then taking the trolley is an easy way to get where you need to go, as long as you plan ahead and check the schedule for when it’s arriving and where.

Did You Know?
Housing is great and usually easy for everyone except for sophomores. Since they're lowest on the ladder when it comes to credits, they get the last pick for housing. Although things generally work out and people get moved around to places they actually want to be, it can be a bit stressful.
