4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus itself is quite small so it allows for easy commutes to classes. The dorms are great for any student looking to stay on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If you're an incoming freshman, living in Del Ray North or South. I live in Del Ray North and the rooms are massive!! Tons of space!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. I am always close to my classes and there is always food close by. I also like being able to be with the people I have classes with and it makes it easier to work on group projects.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's pretty cool; most of my friends live in the same dorm as me. The dorms are extremely clean. The walls are pretty thin, so I can sometimes hear other students next door. Sometimes people play their music late at night, which is fine sometimes, but other times not (when I'm trying to sleep). Sometimes people randomly yell outside in the middle of the night (but I think that happens in the weenends).

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love love loved living on campus my first two years, but I couldn't afford any day longer!!! The social atmosphere in freshmen areas is very cool (if you allow it to be)! You can ignore everyone, and stay in your room, or you can branch out because everyone is in the same position! It is very convenient to live on-campus, but I found that living off-campus makes you feel like you are actually a part the city (even though I only live a mile away from LMU). The "best" option in freshman housing are the Del Reys, but I like Desmond and Doheny because they both have sinks. They aren't as big as the Del Reys, but they have a cozier, less hospitalized vibe than the Del Reys. Mckay is also supposed to be really bad, but I loved it! The halls might not be as nice, but you aren't living in the hallways! Anywhere is good, you just need to decorate it cute, give it good vibes, and keep it decently clean.

For your first two years at LMU, you have a variety of options for dorm life. Freshmen have many options. If you're into partying, try Whelan and Rosecrans, two of the older dorms. If you're more interested in some quiet time, try Sullivan or Huesman. Overall, though, every dorm has its fans, and students who obtain housing are happy with their new home. Newer apartments like O'Malley are beautiful and contrast significantly with the old, rundown look of Hannon and Tenderich. However, don't complain too much, because after sophomore year, you'll replace a crowded dorm with an expensive apartment. Housing is not guaranteed, or even likely, for upperclassmen, and right now there is a major housing crisis. There is relief in sight, but until then, current sophomores, juniors, and seniors are stuck making off-campus arrangements.

Dorms are well-equipped with a reasonable amount of closet and drawer space. Students who are unhappy with sharing a bathroom with an entire floor can opt for one of the many suites on campus. Non-smoking and quiet dorms are available. Overall, the dorms offer students a variety of room types and buildings. The trick is getting a spot after your sophomore year.
