4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most students live on campus. The school has a partnership with specific off-campus apartments as well. However, getting a room change is dependent on whether there are rooms available.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Great options: we have the "old dorms" -- old, obviously, with beautiful spanish architecture, and the "new dorms" -- also nice + air conditioning. All the dorms have kitchens, printers/computers, wifi, nice cleaning service. After freshman year you can choose your dorm, and most people live on campus happily all four years.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are really nice, but the social life in dorms is nearly nonexistent.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Beautiful dorms are here but they are hard to get and fill up fast. The housing lottery leaves a lot to be desired. Different dorms have vastly different qualities of life. Some have AC, filtered water and spacious dorms...my freshman year dorm had rats and looked like the set of a 1970s B movie...bleh

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Our dorm selection process is far more complicated than it needs to be and often confuses students. Students also have to pay the same amount for each dorm despite some living in air conditioned suites/singles and others living in cramped triples with no air conditioning or easy water fountain access.

On-campus living at Scripps is definitely not typical dorming. You will encounter hardly any dorming complaints, and improvements are constantly being made. Students are very respectful and appreciative of the dorms, and make a conscious effort to take care of their living space to keep it as nice as they found it. There are dorms that are preferred less than others, but there are no dorms deemed unlivable or hated by students. Each and every living space is made to accommodate to students' well being and provide a comfortable learning environment.

Most dorms have more space than any other college-living space, and comfort is a top priority. All dorm buildings are unique, with not any one like another. Each has its own personality as well as attitude and atmosphere. Beauty and elegance is not lost to efficiency and convenience, as each dorm's architecture has been inspired by historical art influence, giving somewhat of an old and classical feel, but with the modern comforts of Ethernet, heaters, and air-conditioning. From the antique structural design to the beautiful old furniture and scenic courtyards, Scripps dormitories truly do live up to their reputation of being palace-like dorms, following founder Ellen Browning Scripps's belief that beauty will help inspire beauty.
