There's no blanket term that can describe the dorms on campus. There are plenty of good points, but there are also a few issues in need of fixing. While freshman dorms are generally good, they have poor sound insulation and are prone to broken utilities. If they listen hard enough, students can hear entire conversations from nearby rooms; in Traer, this is often loud enough to interfere with students' sleep. Traer also has broken doors, while Dempsey has a faulty fire-alarm system. Both can be annoying, but they are not much of a problem beyond that.
Upperclassman dorms are inarguably better and offer all of the utilities a student requires. They use electric key-cards and magnetic locks, which helps increase security and privacy. They also have kitchens and separate bathrooms, which may not be essential, but they're definitely appreciated.
