Housing at Allegheny can rock or suck. There are some dorms that are 100 years old and are your traditional college housing (like Brooks Hall). Then, there is North Village, which finished construction in 2010 and features quads and triples. A lot of the dorms on campus offer several different kinds of rooms within one building. For example, Brooks Hall, the all-female building, has mainly singles and doubles. On the fourth floor, however, there are giant one-room quads, and there is even one suite that has its own bathroom. Most of the buildings on campus have been renovated or reworked over the years. Rumor has it that Caflisch Hall was laid out by someone who designed prisons. What's great is that the College doesn't have any dorm curfews or restrictions on visitors. And depending on the building, guys and girls can live together.
Also, several of the main dorms are smack-dab in the middle of campus, so it's never a hassle to get where you want to go. There is new furniture in all of the dorms, and the school also allows the students a lot of freedom with their rooms. For example, you can paint your room as long as you paint it white again at the end of the year or if you can get the next occupant to agree to keep it. You can have any kind of pet that lives in an aquarium (although lots of people secretly have furry pets). The College is pretty lenient, so you can make it as homey as you want.
