2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I mean it depends. For freshmans, the newer buldings like Taft and Smith are pretty nice. The older buildings, like Storrs and Pierce, are pretty ugly and have smaller rooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in Magnolia was great for all of the events that they threw and such, but our physical dorms were definitely not up to par. Especially with the newer dorms, and we're paying the same price and that is unfair.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is great, I think I am having a great, social housing experience.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: literally crap for being $6,000 a month

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Expensive but worth it for the experience. Close to downtown Cleveland and discounts for games and events.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Residence halls are on the whole are well-equipped, well-lit, warm enough and bug-free. North campus dorms are primarily for underclassmen with the exception of a few buildings. The north campus dorms were renovated recently and the south campus dorms are all presently being renovated. There is a type of dorm room and suite for nearly every type of person. Freshmen are required to live in doubles or quads which are well-furnished and have Internet and phone lines. Most upperclassmen live in suites with single rooms that include their own mini-fridges and share a common living room; each is well-furnished, and each room contains the same connection capabilities.

Economically speaking, the price students pay for living in campus housing seems high compared with the price that a student would pay living off campus. Laundry is expensive, the kitchens are tiny and awkward and the furniture is uncomfortable. Location and residence life benefits (asked for or not) seem to buffer the sticker shock after students calculate that they're paying a whopping $550 per month on average.
