3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Confusing on how to apply for what dorm. Needed more information on honors housing process.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Try to live on main campus or kittredge.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally live in one of the best dorms of the university, Williams Village North, but I have been to other resident hall and they are not as pleasant as mine. The better resident halls have the worst dining halls whereas the rustic resident hall have great dining halls, therefore, it evens out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: People in the dorms are very cliquey and the staff is not very friendly. There are not many activities or social outings to join.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best way to meet people. There are always events at your disposal, and if you need someone to hang out with, they are right next door. It is wonderful to have the dining halls right next door to your room (in the next building over at most), and each of the dining halls has a slightly different offering of food so you can mix it up if you want. Living on campus is the most convenient option. That being said, at CU the cost to live on campus is much higher than living off campus, so many students choose to live off campus after their first year. I would highly recommend living on campus for at least the first year.

Within view of some of the most sought after dorms lies a stretch of grass known as Farrand Field. A few trees cast enough shade for only a handful of students, yet that does not seem to matter. On Farrand, it is the sunlight which is sought after. Here, students mingle between study sessions, while the uninhibited soak in rays in thier bikinis. While some students complain about the requirement to live on campus the first year, they soon find that dorm life is fundamental to establishing a social life of any kind. The dorms are a place where relationships are formed and the beginning of the next four years of your life unfolds.

Given its convenient location only steps from Farrand Field, Farrand Hall remains first choice among incoming students. The environment is extremely social, as well as accommodating. Farrand also offers an academic program, which allows students to enroll in classes given within the dorm. Adjacent to Farrand is Hallett Hall, which is coined as a "party dorm." Another popular dorm is Cheyenne Arapahoe. Due to its vegetarian-friendly dining hall, "Cheyhoe" is often labeled as more of a laid-back dorm. Still, the most disregarded dormitory remains Williams Village, which requires dorm dwellers to endure a short bus ride to and from campus. "Will Ville," as it is called by students, can be avoided by submitting residence hall request forms as soon as possible.
