4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are too small and too expensive

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wish that the dorms were more central to campus, the only one that's centrally located is Selleck.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Neihardt has a very good community- everybody is friendly and it is easy to make friends. Living on campus makes it easy to participate in various campus activities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I cant say much because I have never lived on campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's way too expensive and a big hassle.

When it comes to picking favorites, UNL students care more about the convenience and reputation of a dorm than the quality of its rooms. Some students are willing to sacrifice shut-eye for partying (Abel), while others are willing to walk three extra blocks to class so they can actually study in their rooms (Harper-Schramm-Smith). Students really enjoy living on campus, but many feel that it’s important to choose a dorm with a personality that matches their own.

Perhaps more importantly, there are many strong friendships that are bound while living on campus. At UNL, all freshmen are required to live on campus, which means the dorms have a wide variety of residents. Even if you aren’t BFF with your roommate, you’re bound to meet someone you like on your floor—there are like 60 to 100 other undergrads. It has been proven that students are truly better off living like sardines their freshman years than living the suite life due to the bonding experience. The friendships you will forge in the dorms will make your college years that much more meaningful and fun.
