3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is nice. It's cool to be so close to so many other students and to be able to just walk across the hall and meet new people who are in the same place doing the same thing as you.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in a newer building with air conditioning, my own bathroom with my roommate, spacious closet and bedroom space. Always clean and had easy convenience to recycle, do laundry, and location to classes.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great. I lived in Norwood Hall this past year which is one of the older dorms on campus but it was still terrific. All the dorms are being updated though. Moffett, Madison, Jefferson, and Washington are brand new and absolutely gorgeous. They're the nicest dorms on campus. This year they're updating the older dorms on Moffett Quad. A lot of the dorms aren't suites so that's really nice. I didn't have to share a bathroom with anyone but my roommate which was a blessing. There are also really nice four person apartments that take up the top floor of all the newer dorms. There's a lottery system for those but they are really nice and easy to apply for. Look forward to living on campus. I'm thrilled to have my own room in my apartment and everything next year but I'll miss the social scene of the dorms.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I loved dorm life and my RA was the best. They have so many activities to make you feel welcome and not miss home so much.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Lots of the dorms have been/are being renovated so some have incredible ambience and some have typical stuffy old college vibes. Muse is the worst as far as how it looks on the inside, but there is a fitness center and dining hall inside Muse. The housing website hasn't updated the pics of the dorms in a while, not since some of the more recent renovations. Don't trust them. Moffet and Washington look the best on the inside right now.

Radford dorms are on the older side, but are very well maintained. Some of the dormitories allow students to control their own heating and air conditioning on a room-by-room basis. Many dorms are suite-style, with two rooms sharing a bathroom, but with the triple rooms that are much larger, students get their own bathrooms. The school provides many room essentials and has several programs that allow students to rent items such as refrigerators and microwaves for a reasonable price. Also, each dorm has a housekeeper that maintains all of the common areas, hallways, stairs, and elevators. All dorms are smoke-free, but offer smoking areas 25 feet away from each building. Lastly, all dorms are conveniently located within walking distance from all classes.

Every dorm has a Residence Hall Council that helps students get involved in on-campus activities and bond through programs and dorm activities such as movie nights or midnight breakfasts. Themed living is available in several of the dorms, and Muse has several single-sex floors. While dorm living is vital to creating bonds with fellow students, especially during the first year of college, it does have its drawbacks. Dorms are not soundproof, and students often complain about a noisy neighbor or floor. Also, dorms are required to do monthly fire drills that range from drills in the daytime to the early hours of the morning, and if a student happens to live in Muse, a fire drill can be an extremely long event. Also, on many occasions, police and emergency services will make appearances to deal with alcohol poisoning or drug violations.
