4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I absolutely love living on campus. Dorm room sizes vary depending on where you chose to live, but even the smallest rooms can be fabulous if you live with someone who is compatible with you. Generally, there are quiet hours after a certain time each night (very reasonable), which basically means you can't blast music or scream at the top of your lungs. This is just so people around you can sleep or study or do whatever without being disturbed. If you have a communal bathroom, someone comes by once a day (usually in the morning) and cleans everything (showers, toilets, sinks, floors...). If you have a private bathroom with another room, someone will still come by a few times a week to take out your trash, and clean the toilet, showers, and sink. The only annoying thing about living on campus is how pricey it is.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rhodes Campus has been rated one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. My housing experience has been wonderful. My dorm is spacious and the bathroom and showering facilities are clean.

Campus Housing: The older you are the better on campus housing gets.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in my dorm. I live in this crazy dorm called Wiliford that is basically a maze, so the RA never visits. The showers kind of suck. There are four showers that are made for a midget and two decent ones. There is also an issue with internet around like 12-1 (I'm not sure why, but that's just what I've noticed). The dorms are fairly spacious and I don't have any bug issues or anything like that. It's nice that there is a temperature control thing in everyone's room. However, once they switch from air conditioning to heat there is no going back until spring. They jumped the gun a little bit this year too, so that has been a hassle.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on Campus Is Convenient and Fun – I love living in the dorms. The girls that I was placed on a hall with could not have been more fantastic, and my friends and I worked with the system to all live in the same dorm next year. Because campus is so small it's very convenient to live on campus. The dorms are nice and most upperclassmen dorms are pretty roomy. I like that a lot of dorms with hall bathrooms have sinks in the room.

The majority of Rhodes students is fairly pleased with on-campus housing. For one, the housing department usually does an incredible job of pairing up freshman roommates. Many even choose to live together again the following year. There also doesn't seem to be a necessarily "bad" dorm to live in. For example, some say Glassell Hall is an absolutely miserable place in which to live, while others rave about its sense of community and the great freshman memories created there. Luckily, if you do find your dorm less than ideal, you can walk two minutes to the next dorm and hang out there. The close distance between the dorms and the rest of the buildings on campus, plus the desire to remain in the loop regarding campus events and activities, cause many students to want to live on campus all four years. It is also much safer—dorm buildings can only be accessed with a FOB key (all students get one at the beginning of freshman year), and many students even feel comfortable enough to leave their dorm room doors unlocked throughout the day. 

Recently, as Rhodes has started to expand, there has been an issue involving space. Students are being encouraged to move off campus to make room for the ever-rising number of incoming freshmen. Freshmen and sophomores are guaranteed housing, so you'll have a couple of years before you start to feel real pressure; however, thankfully, new construction plans have been made, so the space issue could be completely resolved very soon. This is a definite plus because staying on campus helps students get more involved in the social scene and the community of the school. Plus, who doesn't like to wake up five minutes before class starts and still make it on time?
