3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some halls the are nicer than others, especially the newer facilities and the more expensive choices, such as the Sercs and Cottages.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I know people who live in dorms and some say they'd rather stay home and some love the freedom and their roommates. The cost is pretty pricy in my opinion and the housing process is pretty easy.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was in Eames which was nice as it was 2 seconds from class however unfortunately Eames will no longer be there.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: good variety for honors program students - everyone else opt for 2 or singles

UNH has a dorm to suit anyone’s style. Whether you’re a double major in biology and mathematics who wants nothing more then a quiet living space to study, or a party animal jock whose sole purpose in life is to be the center of attention, there is probably a dorm for you. There are large freshman dorms that aren’t as pretty as other dorms—Christiansen, Williamson, Stoke—but the people you meet there and the relationships you form are hard to come by anywhere else. Some disadvantages to freshman dorms are the loud atmospheres, dirty hallways and bathrooms, and the sometimes long walks to classes. Themed halls help students find others with similar interests. There are many themes, including chemical-free, multicultural, business, and even all-female dorms.

Most students agree that your chances of getting into anyplace other than a freshman dorm are slim, due to increasing freshman class sizes, but it’s worth the effort to try. Living with people other than freshmen can have great advantages. Upperclassmen have a better sense of the school, and they have experience that most freshmen will not be able to provide. The biggest advantage is the newer and nicer rooms. Whatever your style, you can find a place to fit in at UNH.
