Campus Housing: i dont live on campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The people you meet in on-campus housing are amazing! I've become so close with practically everyone, it's really a good time. So easy to make friends. However, since bport was previously known as a big party school, they're really crackin down on the dorms, especially freshmen. Last semester, I had a knock on my door basically every weekend it was ridiculous. There are, of course, ways around it. But that's a different story. The dorms are actually pretty nice but the suites need a little fixing up.

Campus Housing: The dorms are older, but I'm in one of the newer dorms, only one form is air conditioned. It was easy to get a roommate, however the matching process wasn't done as well as it should be

Campus Housing: Had a bad experience with on campus housing because we lived in Dobson and it was the worst thing ever. No one talked to us everyone was secluded, the dorms are old and gross and small, yet we paid the same amount as people in the nicer dorms. Went through hell and back to move out of dobson. Thompson/Macvicar are better options. For sophomore year, the high rises are okay just secluded.

The dorms offer so many opportunities to get to know other students, and to become involved in the community as well as on campus. The College at Brockport has 10 living learning communities (LLCs) that freshmen are more than welcome to join. They have everything for everybody! The College then places students with other students of the same interests during their first semester of dorm life. The living learning communities are also helpful in furthering each individual's skills in the area of his or her respective majors.

The dorms are generally clean and well-kept. A Brockport ID card is needed to get into each building, and from there, it is personalized to your own individual building. The dorms are placed conveniently near academic buildings for freshmen, mostly. The high-rise buildings are grouped together on the far end of campus, making it a bit of a walk. The Student Townhomes are the most highly promoted at Brockport, and are for upperclassmen, at more affordable prices than the dorms—and with more independence!
