5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Sea Gull Square is a great place to live, it's probably the nicest place on campus. It has four floors of rooms. In each room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1 living and a kitchen with a small eating space, there is also stackable washing and dryer. They mostly have 1 year leases which are about $8,000 (you can definitely find cheaper places off campus with more space but you can't beat the amenities and the convenience of this residence). The building also includes a gym.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The high rises are great, Chester & Choptank are newly renovated and they are just wonderful. I know many upperclassmen that love those dorms. Seagull square is nice too, thin walls but it's still lovely.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are reallt up to date and are close to everything else on campus, such as classrooms, the dining hall, and the book store.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: SeaGull is gorgeous. Just be prepared to hear absolutely everything. The walls are thin and you hear each bump and step.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are many pros and cons with the building I currently live inn. While it is close to my academic buildings, it is very hard to socialize and make friends because of the way the rooms are set up.

Salisbury provides housing to a large percentage of the freshman population, but not all. There are seven new-student halls, divided into four traditional and three high-rise halls. The traditional halls are further divided into two coed and two single-gender halls. These halls contain common bathrooms—one for the entire floor—study lounges, and a laundry room. The three high-rise buildings are all coed and are in cluster arrangements, meaning there are five double rooms surrounding one bathroom. These halls also have study lounges and laundry rooms. Of all the amenities, the laundry system is the greatest attraction, as it is quite easy to use. An automated system injects the right amount of detergent for the load, which removes the worry of measuring the correct amount by eye.

SU is beginning a renovation of its residence halls to expand and modernize them with even more technology. Nevertheless, many students tend to move off campus after their freshman year to University-owned housing surrounding campus. However, the upperclassman dorms—Chesapeake, St. Martin, and Dogwood Village—also provide an independent living experience. Dogwood Village provides single housing for students who wish to live alone; St. Martin provides housing for groups of four with two double rooms joined by a common bathroom; and Chesapeake is the most sought-after upperclassman dorm because it provides apartment-style living for eight people with a full kitchen and living room. Overall, no matter what hall you live in, Residence Life certainly makes every effort to ensure on-campus living is an enjoyable experience. This culminates with the Spring Olympics, a hall-to-hall competition in everything from board games to Capture the Flag. The prize? A year of bragging rights.
