4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Regardless of what some people might say about living in K-New (the freshmen dorms and two of the oldest buildings on campus), it isn't terrible at all. The school has absolutely remodeled the bathroom and the kitchen area, and there is computer/printer access in the basement. It clearly isn't as fancy as the Sienas or Anniversary, but I think a lot of the stigma towards K-New finds its roots in the upper-class white kids who tend to apply with Bellarmine. These are dorm rooms, not luxury hotels. You have internet, heat, air-conditioning, a window, desks, beds, lots of storage, and the option to bring in fish or turtles. Laundry is also free.

I stayed in the Sienas during my sophomore year, and while they're definitely more expensive than K-New and also further away from the class buildings (despite Bellarmine being a small campus in the first place), they're very spacious and new. Well-lit, high ceilings, etc. You can also control the temperature in your individual room and different sections of the halls with thermostats. Overall, neither K-New or the Siennas are slums. But living on Bellarmine is extremely expensive, so most people scramble to find apartments their junior and senior years. (Occasionally, sophomores are allowed off-campus.)

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Lived in Kennedy my first year, and although the community bathrooms were a challenge, the atmosphere of the halls was great.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The living space is nice but the community was hard to connect to for me.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not like the dorms. There is no enforcement to quite hours. The dorm rooms in Kennedy are small. The heating is hardly turned on. There is hardly any lighting. The community bathrooms are okay, but people are gross. Some like to gather into the hallways and talk as loud as possible, which can be disturbing for mostly everyone. It is not worth the cost. There are newer and better dorms, but i do not live there. It is very convenient to live on campus. The furthest you would have to walk to class is about 10 minutes.

Campus Housing: I love the hall that I'm on, if you keep your room clean you will have enough space.
