4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It honestly depends on where you live. It is a suitcase school so the social aspect is not that great. Living in the village or laurel is lovely because you get your own bedroom and so forth. the other dorm buildings you either share a single room with one or two others or a room with one other then a common room with your roomie and another set of people. You dont have to deal with floor bathrooms, every dorm room has its own. laundry is free. Overall it is certainly expensive but its a nice place to live.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is really really nice! There are no community bathrooms- everyone has their own!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is definitely one of the better aspects about Ramapo. The rooms in most of the residence halls are nice quality, and suite-style housing was great for meeting new people, especially as a freshman. I also love how housing selection goes by the number of credits you have versus a lottery system.

Campus Housing: Dont live on campus so i dont really know how it is living there

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in one of the new dorms allows for an enjoyable experience. Worst options are the older dorms such as Linden and Pine. The social atmosphere is great, including the LLC program for freshmen. The cost is decent and so is the convenience. The housing process is simple.

Housing at Ramapo College is guaranteed for all students in good academic and disciplinary standing, and can be extremely competitive and arduous if there is an odd number of people attempting to get housing. Students must have the proper number of people applying in their group, or they simply will not get placed in the room as a group. 

Most residences are split up into rooms of four students, with Pine being the exception (six students), and bedrooms tend to house two students, with Bischoff and Mackin Halls being the exception (three students). The dormitories, even at their most crowded, still are spacious and well maintained. Each room has its own bathroom, so those concerned with showering in groups or in a public restroom needn't worry. The housing projects tend to be new, and those buildings that have been with the campus since its inception have been renovated since. There is no available off-campus housing, but there is a variety of on-campus apartments for those who would like a less dorm-oriented approach to housing. The College Park Apartments are available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and feature two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a kitchen/living area.
