Living on campus is overall beneficial to live in close proximity to both campuses of APU. Freshmen housing has improved since their are 3 building options. Obviously Trinity is the newest, therefore the nicest and most spacious. Sophomore housing includes Shire modular or two apartment complexes. My shire mod experience was less than satisfactory because I felt like I was living in a cardboard box, but the community aspect was positive. Upper classmen housing in University Village is good, some apartments are older and more worn in but the space is exceptional, privacy is great, community participation is low but the recreational areas are decent and provide opportunities to socialize outside the apartments!

Even though where I lived as a freshman (Adams Hall), was an older building, I didn't mind it because the atmosphere was so warm and loving! Everyone there wants to help you get involved, and its very much like a family. Adams is usually the last option for most girls, as it was mine, but I wouldn't change it for the world. The community there is so caring and it is a whole different environment from Trinity or Engstrom! Housing process was pretty simple and fair, as well as the cost. Adams rooms are bigger than most, they're more spacious and have the most room for storage (2 double door closets, 3 huge overhead cabinets, 6 vanity drawers plus your desk drawers for every 1 person). So don't let the age of the building deter you, its a fantastic living space with great people!

I personally am okay with the available food, because I found options that work for me. I like getting salads or bowls from Mexicali and sandwiches, salads, or wraps from the Den (either pre-made or personalized, like Subway) because I enjoy the variety and they're all pretty healthy. Some people complain about the food, but I think you just have to keep trying things until you discover what you like the best. Being able to go to the coffee shops and convenience stores (one of each on either campus) is also really convenient!
