3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are great for what they are. You are mainly paying for convenience on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some dormitories are kept in better care than others, but it's generally not a problem.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All entering freshmen, unless living at home with their parents, are required to live on campus. This is a fantastic rule as it completely enables the student to jump into academic life. The learning communities are set up to give students with similar academic interests a chance to live together in the same dorms to share interests and help each other out.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm not living in campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Massey is the most outdated dorm. Largest rooms and virtually in the center of campus but outdated nonetheless. It's the only dorm that doesn't have a POD market inside it.

There are positive and negative aspects to each dorm. You must make a decision based upon your preferences and priorities. Your academic and social life will not be solely determined by which dorm you are assigned to, and you will be able to make friends no matter where you go. Make sure you understand the rules and regulations of living in each dorm before you arrive. Some of them are rather strict and may catch you off guard.

The dorms have somewhat improved over the last several years. Air conditioning seemed to be one of the biggest complaints. Many of the dorms have working air-conditioners, as well as new windows now, which will pay off from August until the middle of October. Just because you request a dorm does not mean you will ultimately be assigned to that dorm. Since there is no perfect dorm, and none that can really be a huge pain, try to make the most of whatever situation you have and make new friends.
