4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have great roommates and spacious apartment.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice. The only thing I would change about them is to update them. The newer dorms are extremely nice, but the older dorms are gross. They are two completely different spectrums.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Certain residences are better than others in different aspects. the Residential College South has to be hands down the nicest dorm on campus. We have very spacious rooms, our own bathroom and shower, and a cafeteria downstairs with unlimited meals. The Ridges are also up to par with the RC. They are slightly bigger, newer, and also have their own bathrooms and showers. Of course, these residences are more costly to live in and lack in the social atmosphere category. If a student wants a traditional dorm experience and meet lots of people, then Stockard, Kincannon, Martin, Crosby, and Brown are the right dorms for you. They do have community bathrooms and are a little smaller, but the social atmosphere is wonderful and the amount of people you will meet is unreal. If you live in the traditional living residence halls, you will most likely take part in numerous social activities that will allow you to meet a ton of people, get to know campus, and have a heads up on whats going on around campus more than the kids at the Ridges and Residential College South.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus housing, so I'm not so sure.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The best part of the dorm is getting to meet new people, because everyone is located in one building. It is great for a freshman, because it allows them to open up and make new friends. The worst thing about the dorms are the bathrooms and the size of the rooms. I lived in crosby so the bathrooms were just getting redone when I was freshman, wish was good, but the rooms were so old.

At Ole Miss, freshmen are required to live on campus. The only exceptions are those who live in Oxford or who have a relative in town that they can stay with. Yes, some of you were looking forward to getting out of the house, living in your own apartment, and making your own rules, but living in the dorms isn’t all bad. Since you have no choice in the matter, you just have to deal with it. A bad attitude about living on campus is only going to ruin the experience for you. For those of you who are from out-of-state and don’t know anybody at Ole Miss, living in the dorms is a great experience that will allow you to meet lots of new people.

Before you get to your dorm, there are some rules you should know about that are going to be hard to live with. There’s a midnight visitor curfew Sunday through Thursday, and a 2 a.m. curfew on Fridays and Saturdays. No hot plates, candles, or incense are allowed. No alcohol is permitted in the dorms at all, and no smoking is allowed in any of the residence halls. Dorms are a great place to meet people, but they aren’t a great place to go barefoot. Make sure to bring a pair of flip-flops to wear in the showers. Bathrooms are communal and not likely to be as clean as the one you’re used to at home. They’re usually cleaned about once a week by the custodial staff, but what that really means is they hook up a hose to the water faucets and spray the bathroom down. It’s pretty gross, but you get used to it, and it makes you even more appreciative of clean bathrooms when you move out.
