3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It ranges from great to terrible. Some dorms are in great shape while others are literally falling apart inside. That said, most people on campus are decent at the very least.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Whitcomb completely sucks, but I hear that Bowler Hall and the Quad have relatively good housing. So pretty much, everywhere is okay-ish except Whitcomb.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Unless you have the ability to commute or you are a senior or in rare cases if none of those options work have approval to live off campus- you must live on campus. While the dorms aren't terrible, they have some downfalls. East Hall, Bowler and the Townhouses are usually filled by upperclassmen, which are wonderful, new facilities ( or in Bowler's case - renovated) with air conditioning.

I loved Henry Hall ( two years) and lived in Miller Hall (for this past year) on campus. Each building has different social scenes.
For example, Henry was where all the gamers and the quieter people tended to be. However, a lot of people in the Quad are loud and party.

Hiram is small, so classes are literally 5 minutes if not less to get to from your dorm. You also do not have to drive across campus to see friends in other dorm buildings.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: All Are Great – There really aren't any dorms that are bad, most depend on your own tastes. Miller is great for incoming freshman, the quad is good for parties, the townhouses are excellent for upper classmen, and Henry is great for quiet people. Everything depends on what you are looking for.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are nothing fancy. very plain typical. they get better as you move up. There is no real chance of living off campus unless you intend on buying a house.

Since Hiram is a residential campus, there are many on-campus options for students. For first-year students, it is common for them to live in a traditional double room. This promotes community, especially when freshmen live on all-freshman floors. The cleanest freshman dorm is Booth-Centennial, but the dorms with the best sense of community are the ones with floor lounges—Whitcomb and Miller. Henry Hall has a reputation for being favorable among the quieter, more reserved students, whereas the Quad is popular for the rowdy type.

If you are a sophomore, you have the option of living in the apartment-style dorms in East Hall, which are the newest dorms on campus. You can also opt to live in Bowler Hall, which is the most historic dorm on campus. As a junior or senior, you can choose to live in the new Townhouses, which are technically owned by campus but are independent of the school and come equipped with kitchens and their own parking lot.
