4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the on-campus housing options are close to classes and for the most part well kept. As a freshman I lived in Sherwood which some people consider "the worst dorm", but I loved it and my closest friends are the girls from my floor.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Living in the campus depends on which dorm you have to live in. If you live pretty far from the cafeteria or classroom, then it's very bad.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are definitely not created equally. Lesher has the most spacious rooms, it is also very quiet there most of the time. It really depends on who you're stuck with in each resident hall. This year, Sunderland and Sherwood floors seem to get along the best. Life in TnT isn't as fun, however. Not many of the floor-mates interact with each other much. It's almost always quiet here though so you can study or sleep in your room any time of the day without worrying about being annoyed by loud students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman dorm options are pretty standard compared to other schools. South has larger rooms but are not available to freshmen. Lesher also has bigger rooms but is only available to female students. The east buildings offer a suite style with four bedrooms, a living room area, and a bathroom. Also a new residence hall is currently being built.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything is convenient and close to campus buildings, and East is a little farther off but less than a five minutes walk from the dining hall and quad for those who want more space. There are quiet dorms, and social dorms, its nice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Noncommuting freshmen are required to live on campus, and this is a good thing, as it's the best way to get sucked into the Juniata bubble and meet the people who will become your family over the next few years. There's an RA for every floor of every building to help you if needed, and most are laid-back and pretty cool about helping you with your woes. The rooms can be a bit cramped at times, especially in Sunderland with its extra furniture. If you're a girl with tons of stuff and you don't mind a bit of estrogen overload, head to Lesher—the rooms are bigger and there's plenty of closet space. Tussey and Terrace are usually freshman favorites and have the nicest bathrooms on campus. Listen to the students who tell you to stay away from Sherwood.

When you're an upperclassman, you'll probably want to head to Cloister or South, which both have great atmospheres. Cloister is older, centrally located, character-laden, and exclusive to upperclassmen, while South lets the ladies and the gents live side-by-side and has the largest rooms by far. Most of the seniors who stay on campus live in these two places. Finally, all dorms are only a short walk from all of the key places on campus, except for East, which is a bit farther away. East is the requisite party dorm; it's fine if you want to experience life in a suite with seven other people, but weekends there are loud, which prompts many to choose just to party there and live somewhere else.

Did You Know?
  • All Juniata housing is smoke free.
  • Cloister is home to legends and traditions alike, as "Storming of the Arch" and the annual Haunted House occur in and around its walls. This is also the dorm where you'll find the requisite rumors of a friendly campus ghost, though whether this is actually true remains to be seen—or heard.
