4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only downside to on campus living is the Price for food and On campus stores. The best way to buy snacks is buying them in bulk at the local market or even better, The local Wal-Mart, which if you catch a cab with a friend is only about $6 dollars for a round trip.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Lottery system is super confusing and time consuming. Also, dorms are old and I feel you can get a better value elsewhere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is nice

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are several very old buildings that are slowly being phased out and a brand new building that is suite style, so depending on what you get the experience could be very different.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, so I feel that my input on this would be irrelevant.

The dorm facilities at Lock Haven University are very outdated and need a lot of improvement. All of the dorms range in size and structure. Russell Hall has the largest rooms, but it's the smallest dormitory on campus. The bathrooms are old fashioned and need to be updated. Lock Haven is located in the mountains, and the dorm rooms look like they were made out of the trees that surround them. Everything in the dorm rooms is wooden and doesn’t appeal to the modern era. In a double room, there isn’t much space, except for the rooms in Russell Hall.

Overall, the dorm facilities are cleaned once a week. When it comes to walking to class, it’s a struggle. High, North, McEntire, and Gross halls are all located atop a hill, and there are windy steps that lead down to campus. When it comes to the wintertime, many students have trouble making it safely down to campus. It’s more of a hazard to live in these dorms. The social environment in dorms all depends on who lives in which dorm, but all in all, memories are always made in the dorms. In terms of construction developments, Lock Haven plans to expand campus housing in the near future.
