4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You can have the best dorm, or the worst, it all depends where you pick to live. The best would be East Hill, it's the newest and best kept. Then Horan would follow being the same design as East Hill, just a little older. Then Jasper, but jasper has communal bathrooms along with C-Block, but that's only available for freshman. Once a month, the RAs on each floor have meetings/parties to bring everyone together. The cost is a little pricy, but taking into consideration of everything, it's worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in a suite will give you more space but also more security and more people. The traditional dorms are good for a sense of community -- you will definitely know everyone on your floor and probably become friends with all of them. Chrysostom does not have A/C which sucks and the rooms are SO SMALL but the sense of community there is unlike any other. Jasper is like Chrysostom just bigger with A/C. If you don't want security looming over your shoulder pick one of those (great for parties, no bag checks). All dorms are close to classrooms -- it shouldn't take you longer than 4 minutes to get to class from your dorm, unless you have to go to Leo.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing would be great if the food was better.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are very strict, you can sneak alcohol in but if you're having people in your room it cannot be very loud.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Jasper hall is by far the best building but sadly I got stuck with the runt of the rooms. Otherwise, the rooms are huge and it's great

The on-campus housing at Manhattan College is very comfortable. Students really have no complaints about any of the dormitories because they all have advantages. Chrysostom is well-liked because it is small and all freshmen, which makes the transition to college life very easy. However, the dorm has no air conditioning, which is a problem at the start of school when it can be very hot. Students like Jasper Hall because the rooms are huge and there's no security guarding the dorm (if you want to try something, go ahead—but it is still risky). Horan Hall is very popular because it has four- and 10-person suites. The 10-person suites have two bathrooms to share with nine other people, while the four-person suites have a private bathroom to share with three other people. East Hall is the newest dormitory, with suite-style accommodations similar to Horan Hall. Of the five dorms on campus, Overlook is a college student’s first taste of living in an apartment setting.

The housing lottery is the time when students pick where they are going to live during the next school year. Resident students are eligible to participate in the lottery once their registration for fall semester (with at least 12 credits) is completed. Some students stay in the room they already live in, while others pick a new building and roommate for the next semester. Overall, the dorm rooms are comfortable, and students rarely have any complaints about living in a certain dorm. If they do have complaints, they can choose somewhere else for next year when the housing lottery comes around again in April.
