I live off campus but my friends say it's great on campus
Living on campus is like living with family. There is much community, and the dorms are nice. It is a bit expensive, but worth it. Housing process is easy, and the best dorm is definitely the new one, South Hall.
The dorms are pretty nice. Heaters and air conditioners generally work. Maintenance is sometimes very fast at unclogging your sink/fixing your antique broken blinds/repairing your broken window latch, other times it takes quite a few days.
I lived in an older dorm (one of the Trinities) and it had definitely seen better days. But beautiful big windows! So light! They just let a breeze in…the interior blinds would rattle on a windy night, because of the awful drafts.
Not all dorms have full kitchens, despite what the website says.
Dorm community is generally pretty strong and it is pretty rough if you don't fit in or get along with your floormates. Floors go to events together and each women's floor is paired with a men's floor. This brother/sister floor idea works well for some floors. It is pretty bad if a significant portion of your brother floor are jerks. It is sometimes also rough if you date someone who isn't on the brother floor. Ladies, you are not the brother floor's property--don't let them dictate what you can or can't do.
Floor community is one of the biggest advantages of LeTU. If you want, you can usually find pretty close friends who will stick by you. Roommate assignment has, in my experience, been a mixed bag. I had two roommates while I was there (one I was assigned, the other I chose when I moved dorms) and they were both fabulous, and we were very nicely matched. I had friends who were assigned people they didn't get along with, or just didn't talk to. Most people seemed pretty positive about that though.
I'm on 41, which I'm told is one of the best floors on the campus. Floor community is great, and I personally really love it.
I am a commuter, so I do not live on campus. However, I have been several times on them. There are very old dorms, and some new ones, so it all depends on which one you live.
On the other hand, Greek houses are owned by the University, although they were funded by alumni, and they are the worst dorms to live because the university does not fund them.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
