3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm buildings are really close to the academic buildings, you can wake up 10 minutes before class and still be on time if you get ready fast enough. I really enjoy the rooms in Williams, Heitz, and Harper (in that order).

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All dorm living is bad. Bradley's housing is just like any other campus. Small rooms that you have to share. I would recommend finding a different place to live if possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing at Bradley is just okay to me as far as cleanliness because even though people clean the bathrooms often they don't clean on weekend and this leaves our bathrooms very germy and nasty. What makes it worst is that people are nasty themselves and do not clean up behind themselves. The best options offered are Heitz, Main Commons, and the Saint James apartment. They are the best because they are spacious, very clean, and comfortable. The worst would be University, Haper, Wollcot, and Williams because they are the oldest buildings and uncomfortable to live in with their high beds across the ceiling.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: All of my experiences with campus housing have been good so far.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Just like a lot of the things at this school, the dorms are okay. The bathrooms aren't updated at all, but my hall has a small walk-in closet. Depends on what you value. However, there is almost no soundproofing...

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Bradley dorms are pretty typical—they're average in size, decently maintained, and relatively clean. Some people complain that living in Bradley's dorms is like living in a jail cell, and others say they don't mind them at all. Either way, they're livable, and people get by because it's college, and students get used to sharing a small space with another person who doesn't necessarily have the same schedule, habits, or interests as them. One great aspect of living on campus is that the dorms are close to everything. Students can roll out of bed at 9:50 a.m. and get to class by 10. If anything happens on campus, the dorms are not too far from the action.

Though Bradley's housing isn't notable for anything, the experience students get while living in the dorms is essential to the college experience. Students who go to Bradley are generally friendly, and living in the dorms accelerates that. Dorm floors become a sort of clan, and the friendships students make their first year usually last throughout the rest of college, if not the rest of their lives. Living in the dorms is also a nice medium between living at home with your parents and living in the real world. A service takes care of cleaning the bathrooms, and the dining halls make the food, yet students have the freedom to come home when they want and clean whenever they feel like it. The dorms facilitate normal college living, but if one word could sum up Bradley's housing, it would be "ordinary."
