3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on which dorm you choose to stay in and what kind of environment you like. Each dorm has its pros and cons. If you like things lively then its best to be somewhere in Marian hall or mixed in with some of the freshmen. If you prefer things to be a little more quiet I would suggest either Joris or Hillside.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: See, I wouldn't know what it's like. I live 10 minutes away from the campus, with my family. I stay over at my friend's dorms every now and then, or we hang out there for awhile. From what I've seen, the housing is nice, pretty average. I visit the Juaris (I believe that's the correct name) dorms. They were recently built, and are supposed to be the best on campus. The single shower stall type in a 3 person dorm...Yeah, I'd say, you need just a little bit more space. The finances are rather expensive, what with it being a private school and all. A little too much for me, but from what I've seen, the lobby area of the dorm is always quiet, except for a rare couple of people here and there. The distance from the top of the hill to the Marian Hall is easily fixed with the buses. Personally, I walk whenever I stay over. It's acceptable over all.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: i don't live on campus so i would not know about campus housing

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Its convenient, community based, and they always have something going on

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If it wasn't crowded it would be perfect.

Students are encouraged to live in the dorms on campus to enrich their college experience. It is important to keep in mind that, due to the increase in enrollment each year, students should request housing early, as space has become limited. Campus housing saves both time and money, as traffic in San Antonio can become hectic, and finding a parking space can sometimes be a hassle. Living on campus also allows for you to meet new and interesting people and become more involved in campus activities. Each residence hall is assigned a resident assitant who watches over students and makes sure that they do not abuse the rules. The RAs are also there to help students with personal matters should they arise.

Some dorm buildings talked about more favorably than others. Colbert Hall, for instance, which houses girls only, is one of the least favorites among students, mainly because it has community showers. The Avoca Apartments, on the other hand, are quite popular among upperclassmen. For those students who do not mind living with someone else, doubles and triples are available, and of course there are also singles for those who prefer to have a little more privacy. Whatever your choice may be, UIW has done its best to make sure that your campus housing experience will be a memorable one.
