College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but the people I have talked to like them. The campus is not large and only takes about 15 minutes to walk from one end to the other.

Even the worst dorms at Mary Washington are not too bad. All of them have fully functioning showers, clean bathrooms, and reasonably sized dorm rooms. Some dorms are nicer than others, but no dorm is a nightmare. Some freshmen get stuck with non-air-conditioned dorms, while others get the pleasure of an air-conditioned room. The biggest complaints when it comes to dorms are not about the dorms themselves, but the inconvenient locations. If you're close to one thing, you're the farthest away from another. But it's only a 10-minute walk across campus, so nothing is too much of a stretch.

One thing that could be improved, that the University is working on, is the input of study rooms, because studying in a noisy lounge room or laundry room can get old. Most students choose to live on campus, even when given the option of living off campus as an upperclassman. The reason for this is the proximity to the University, and that the dorms are satisfactory for housing. Freshmen usually endure the brunt of bad dorms, or as "bad" as they get at Mary Washington (which means no air conditioning). For upperclassmen, it tends to be easier to live in a dorm of your choosing.
