Campus Housing: Being a small campus, most of the students live on campus, in the dorms, suites, or apartments (upperclassmen). I've lived in some of the most central buildings and I've always had a great time with dorm/suite mates and the general atmosphere. We have an honor code so I Iike, even if its not the best idea, that I can leave my stuff in the common suite area that I have shared with between 8 and 18 people.

My favorite place to live so far has been Post Hall. The have larger 18-person suites with 8 doubles and two singles. We shared 4 bathrooms, about 4 to each apart from the side of the suite that has the singles, one on the upper level and one on the lower. The suites have large double height common are with a massive window that overlooks most of campus. The building also had a shared kitchen on the ground floor and a laundry room too.

Housing costs are generally the same across the board unless you opt for a single or an apartment, those include an extra fee. The apartments are really nice if you like to cook since you would have your own kitchen.

Campus Housing: My limited experience with housing has been good. I really enjoyed where I lived, even as the year went on and I learned that I was living in the worst dorms on campus. It was kind of nice, I liked where I was and learned it was the worst, so everything else must be pretty great to be better.

Campus Housing: Campus housing has a lot of different options. Almost all of the dorms are suite-style, which means that a group of 8-16 students share a common living room and bathroom area and their personal dorm rooms are surrounding the common suite room. This creates a close living community and gives students a built-in support system that extends beyond just their roommate. In addition to the suites, Knox also has houses, apartments, and townhouses for students to live in. Some dorm areas are more social and others are more quiet- Post and Williston tend to me more quiet and the quads are more social. Post has the nicest facilities (other than the apartments). The quads are older but spacious and perfectly livable. All housing options are on campus and less than a 10 minute walk from anywhere.

Campus Housing: My experience with campus housing lies strictly with dorm life, and it is noteworthy that each dorm is different from the others. Post Hall easily has the best facilities; there are private bathrooms shared with 4-5 people, and my experience living there last year was phenomenal. Seymour Hall - solely for first year boys - includes the floor sharing a communal bathroom. None of my male friends had a significant problem with this arrangement, but the private bathroom arrangement that I had in Post was much better. The Quad that I am in this year features a communal bathroom with 8 people, but I have learned that communal bathrooms are admittedly not as bad as expected. The dorms do vary in their facilities.

Campus Housing: Students are guaranteed housing for all four years and there is a variety of on campus housing. First years live in suite style dorms and can form close bond with their first year suitemates. There are also townhouses and apartments for upperclassmen. Themed housing, such as Jazz House, Eco House, and Casa Latina are available and every year students have the option to get together with their friends and apply for their very own themed house.
