5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is so amazing, its the basis for all of the starts of friendships. On campus dorm life is so fun the relationships in between brother and sister floors are so fun. Dorm life is great. Its really convenient to live on campus because everything is so close.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are 5 dorms on campus. Ashton Hall is a little bit of a hike, but not that bad. Ashton is the largest dorm, so most people only are close with people on their floors. Hill Hall has good access. There are not a lot of windows in most of the hall, but the rooms are larger. Emerson is the luxurious dorm. They have slate floors, the best gym, jack and jill bathrooms, and their own parking garage! Is it more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Moyar Hall is the older dorm on campus, but it has the best location (right on the Tiffany Loop). It is also the smallest, so everyone knows each other. The New Residence Hall as not yet open. It is beautiful from the outside and looks like it has very large rooms.

Campus Housing: There's a LOT that could definitely be updated: heating, carpet, mattresses, lighting, furniture, plumbing, tile, cafeteria food.

Campus Housing: I was lucky to get into the more newly constructed apartment building, Wesley, so the quality of the apartments is great, especially for the price. My neighbors that I've met, and my PA, are great people. In-apartment washer/dryer is a huge plus, and it's within walking distance of anything.

The dorms on campus are quite nice and spacious in comparison with many other universities. SPU students will complain about the size, but that is because most have nothing to measure against it. However, if you invite a friend over from another college, he or she will be the first to correct you. Each of the four dorms has earned its own reputation, for better or worse. They are all similar structurally, except for the newest, Emerson Hall. Emerson is larger and suite-style, with a walk-in closet and a bathroom shared between two doubles. The other halls have smaller rooms shared between two or three students, and a community bathroom shared by the entire floor, which houses anywhere between 20 and 40 residents.

The dormitories are coed, but the individual floors are segregated by sex. In addition, there are "floor hours," which refer to hours where girls are allowed on boys' floors and vice versa. From 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., cross pollinating is permitted. On weekends and during finals week, floor hours are extended an extra hour until midnight. While this may seem like a strict policy, it is actually one of the most lenient of private Christian universities. It is not uncommon to have a countdown until floor hours are up, and a corresponding strip-down to chase any laggers out right quick. Living in the dorms is an essential piece of any college experience and a great way to make friends, learn new pranks, and find roommates you'll move off campus with in the years to come.
