4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The older dorms are traditionally built but the newer ones are nice and have temperture control and private bathroom

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: It great living on campus and learning the values of the campus and the school. A first time student appreciates his or her independence and embarks on a new life. The social atmosphere and convenience invites students to be there selves and meet new people. The convenience of a easier process of housing helps to ease the stress of college life.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient. You get to meet a lot of new people and everything is in close proximity.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus housing on our campus gives you the opputunity to get to know one another and teaches you more people skills. You have very strictly enforced rules which can be a good thing as well as a bad thing because when things dont go peoples way they tend to break rules. The dorms at Savannah State are very comfortable.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: One of the only perks of living on camp is the accessibility of on campus housing to learning facilities. The best dorms on campus catered to freshmen are the new dorms such Tiger Place, Camilla-Hubert and Tiger Pointe. There are two housing facilities catered to upperclassmen on campus, which is the University Commons and the University Village. The University Commons housing facility is more like a town-house experience. While the University Village housing facility is more like an apartment, and the students who live in these rooms have a full sized beds. The social atmosphere used to be exciting and fun, because the SGA used to host free on campus parties and events for the students, and provide shuttle buses for off-campus parties. Today, the SGA doesn't do that anymore. The housing process has changed from paper applications, to technological applications, which doesn't clearly specify where students want to stay. Every year the cost of housing goes up, which wouldn't be a problem if the school would renovate the upperclassmen housing facilities.

At Savannah State University, there are three freshman residential facilities in addition to the two other halls for upperclassmen. The freshman halls are located in the center of campus around Alexis Circle; therefore, residents are located right next to everything. The freshman and traditional facilities are convenient to classes, but the upperclassman dorms are at the bottom of campus.

Besides the dorm facilities, SSU has two upperclassman residential facilities: University Village and University Commons. These are apartments and condo-style living spaces, respectively. Overall, whether you live in a dorm or an apartment, the social environment is friendly and family-oriented, and students are always willing to lend a helping hand.
