3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The meal plan sucks and you have to be on it when in campus housing

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Each dorm has its own unique character and quality. Most of the freshman dorms aren't that great. The two new buildings Elkinton and Terrell are the nicest dorms, but they're inconveniently much more expensive. There isn't really a standard dorm at Linfield because each building is pretty different.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are many campus housing options for students, however it can be hard to get into your choice housing if you do not have enough credits. The dorms are a great way to meet other students. Each dorm has its unique characteristics, for example Pioneer Hall has a lot of stairs, Jane Hall has sinks in the rooms, etc. The student housing options are very close to campus, which is always nice. The cost is a little high and students are required to live on campus for 3 years (or until they reach senior standing). The apartments are nice as well.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing is required for everyone for the first three years. Therefore, it is very important to research which housing option is best for you. Everyone is different and looks for something different with housing. Places like Elkinton, Terrell and Larsell are very popular and unlikely for freshman to live in. Frerichs (substance free), Hewitt, and Anderson (male only) are also near those two dorms. Those six dorms face each other and is a popular spot where a lot of students want to be. If you are into the social scene, this is the place to live. Also, they are close to the dining hall. Mahaffey is also behind those dorms and is newer and more dorm-style. The older dorms are on the north side of campus, where the classrooms are. These include the female only dorms- Grover, Memorial, and Pioneer (the oldest dorm). Along with those is Campbell, Miller, Newby, Whitman, and Latourette. All of these dorms are older and have unique styles. Potter is another dorm, which is slightly tucked away near the upperclassmen apartments. It is an old house, and perfect for freshman. It is one of the smallest halls, but also the most unique. Each room looks different and the small hall feel can really give a sense of community.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally love living in a residence hall (dorm). I live in Mahaffey which is the largest hall on campus. The people on my floor are all very close and we hang out together everyday. The campus is small enough that almost all dorms are in a good location. Upperclassmen have the opportunity to live in the HP apartments which are very nice and modern. I can't wait to live there my Junior year.

Each housing option at Linfield has its perks. For example, even the older, traditional brick buildings have been renovated, so the rooms are spacious and updated. Students also like the lounges, with amenities such as TVs and DVD players, pingpong tables, and pianos. Overall, Elkinton and Terrell are the newest and nicest dorms on campus, which are usually occupied by upperclassmen. Generally, on-campus housing is preferred over off-campus housing since many students are involved with campus activities and like the convenience of being close to the action; plus, students also enjoy the sense of camaraderie among all the students living on campus.

The dorms at Linfield range from the East Coast, traditional, brick buildings to the newer, modern halls. All of the older dorms have been either renovated or remodeled. Linfield offers study lounges, laundry facilities, and wireless Internet. All residence halls have card access for outside doors, public call-boxes, lounges with TVs, expanded basic cable, kitchens, and recycling facilities. Room options are singles, doubles, triples, quads, and suites. Some dorms have inside bike storage, pianos in lounges, living/dining areas, and private baths and kitchenettes in the rooms. A number of dorms have window seats available, sinks in rooms, walk-in closets, elevators, built-in bunk beds, and outside patios. Some dorms even have gas fireplaces!
