3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I personally commute for economic reasons. However, I did dorm during a summer program known as EOP and it was quite a great experience because the residents on our floor became my close friends and we helped each other in our time of need. We had a blast over the summer and shared interesting stories with one another and the whole floor would find out, but it was out of sheer humor.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is alright. However, only the honors dorm is nice.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: From what my peers have told me dorming is pretty cool. I don't live far from campus so I choose to stay at home. But the dorms seem small. The cost is average and to apply for housing is short but I also know that when it comes to picking your room is through a lottery process. Upperclassmen get first pick and so on. But with the new dorm addition their has been more availability of the newer rooms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's a lot better than Stevens from what I can tell. Each room has their own bathroom and do not share communal bathrooms, but they do have a public bathroom.

The dormitories at NJIT are very different from one another. While freshmen, for the most part, can only stay in two of the five dorms, upperclassmen can stay in all five, leaving them with many choices.

Redwood is one of the freshman dorms, where students live in double or triple rooms and have communal bathrooms. It is located near most of the academic buildings, so it is easy to get to class if a student is running late. It is a very social dorm—students tend to become friends and attend events or study together. Cypress is the other freshman dorm. Here, students live in suites that are divided into two double rooms. They have suite bathrooms, and are expected to keep their bathrooms clean. Cypress, like Redwood, is located near most academic buildings. It isn't as social, but suitemates have a habit of becoming good friends. In terms of upperclassman options, Laurel is known as "the best dorm for upperclassmen," as it has suite housing and is reasonably close to the main academic buildings; plus, it has a game lounge and up-to-date rooms. Slightly older than Laurel, Oak Hall, an on-campus apartment complex, is also close to the main academic buildings, but the students tend to be less social here. The other school-owned apartment complex is University Centre, which provides students with fully furnished apartments across the street from campus.

"Near" can include a roommate keeping beer under his or her bed or even an underager talking to an upperclassman who is drinking. However, this student can only be punished if this situation is in one of the dorms.
