3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: hawk hall is nice but alot of random, socially awkward students live there and the complexes are like the bad section of your nice home town that people avoid like the plague

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are rough because of their size-but they do it right...by placing everyone in that area, the class forms a small community and it is so easy to make friends. Upperclassmen, living in Regents is okay. The apartment is nice but lacks a kitchen and proper sound proofing. You can hear everything.

Living in the Village, however, is awesome. You have your 'own' apartment and it makes college feel more like home.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman complexes are old but they are fixing them up. They have A/C and ceiling lights. They are set up in their own little freshman bubble, so froshies keep to themselves unless they know older people. RA's are more strict in the complexes though, so parties or smoking inside usually lead to a violation.

Regents is shitty. Period. SO LOUD, feels like you're walking through the collapsable hallway that connects to an airplane, no A/C. No kitchen in the apartments. The only good thing is, you choose your roommates.

Park River is very nice, it is probably the nicest apartment complex, the only downside for me is that it is set up indoors (like regents) with hallways. Its hard to get a spot here though, so its usually upperclassmen.

The village is where I live and I love it. There is no A/C or ceiling lights, but it is so spacious and we actually have rooms like a real apartment: a huge living room, 2 or 3 bedrooms, 1 or 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen (no dishwasher though.) Every apt has their own front door, leading outside to one of 7 quads. This is where all of the parties are.

Campus Housing: The housing is not the best. Freshman dorms are from the 70's and they are small and concrete walls. It's basically a jail cell

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus. My younger brother lived on campus as a undergraduate student. He only lived in the dorms for one semester and often spoke about how filthy they were. His roommates were scared to use the bathroom because there was a large amount of mold growing on the floor and walls.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are a number of choices for on-campus housing at the University of Hartford. The Complexes are made up of six complexes, four of which are for freshmen only, while the other two house a mix of all classes. The Complexes are filled with singles, doubles, triples, and quads (the latter two have bunk beds to accommodate the extra students). In addition to the four complexes, another freshman-exclusive dorm is the recently built Hawk Hall, which is arguably the best residence hall. The freshman complexes and Hawk Hall are both conveniently located in the center of the residential side of campus. They each have laundry rooms—on each floor in Hawk and in the basement of the complexes—and common rooms where students can study or hang out when they don't feel like being in their rooms.

There is also apartment-style housing—Regents Park, Park River, and The Village Apartments—for upperclassmen. Regents Park suites house four students in two double rooms, four singles, or two singles and a double. Many students choose to live here, while others hesitate due to the age of the building and the squeaky floors. Park River has four-person apartments where students can either room in a double or single. The Village Apartments are the most popular of the apartments, but they are the farthest from everything, so it is like its own community. It is divided into seven quads, each representing a different identity (ex. 24-hour quiet, community service, etc.). These apartments resemble small duplexes and accommodate two, four, five, or six students, depending on the unit. All of the apartment-style residence halls on campus have a living room and a kitchen area for cooking, except for Regents, which does not have a stove. Students who live in the apartments are responsible for their own cleaning and maintenance; the bathrooms in the Complexes and Hawk Hall are cleaned by members of the maintenance staff.
