2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Conditions bad, social scene not great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not the best freshman dorms, but besides those the other dorms are good. Are required to have a meal-plan, which is not right.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the honors dorms--I have made many great friends and it is an easy walking distance to the caf and my classes. Some of the buildings could use some new installments and cleaning up (there is mold sometimes), but other new buildings are very spacious, clean, and a good value. Everyone is close but it makes it easy to go to and from places; it is very convenient to meet people or hang out in the common rooms. The housing process is done by GPA, which is nice. Overall, I've enjoyed my experience on campus and although there might not be the best living conditions, I know next year I'll be able to move to a better living space and I wouldn't trade my friendships or experience for anything.

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are the worst but you gotta deal with them. Best advice is to just clean up after yourself. It's too easy for bugs to get in so just do it. Also, avoid the ground floor regardless of what building your in. Cullen Daniel (freshman girls) is connected to New Men's (freshman boys) so be aware of that. Once you're out of there, Bruno is newer but North is a better value for the space. Also Bruno is near the sorority houses so there may be a lot of noise there. Lakeview North and South are separated by gender and are the newest buildings. There awesome but super expensive. The apartments are the most expensive but you can also get the Aprment meal plan which is only $900 compared to the ~4000 dollars the rest of us pay.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

All students at Birmingham-Southern are required to live on campus until they are 21 or are of junior status, unless they are local and can live with family. This means that you end up getting to know the people that you go to school with very well. Living on campus is the most convenient option because everything is within walking distance of the dorms, and though the dorms themselves are by no means lavish or impressive, they are equipped with all the necessary things for college life. Some of the dorms include movable furniture, and all of the rooms have a great view of the mountains outside. Each dorm has its own computer lab and free laundry, which are probably the two best features. Also, the Residence Life staff is very receptive to student requests, and they are always trying to find ways to get the halls closer to one another. The RAs, especially, are welcoming and act more like friends than authority figures. Finally, if you plan on living on campus, you're pretty much guaranteed to have somewhere to stay all four years, because room shortages are not very common. There are also several different styles of dorm living. Some people like living in suites with their friends, while others prefer only one roommate or a single. Either way, there are different options for everyone to try.
