3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rooms are new, and nice- but many are very cramped and poorly lit. Great proximity to dining halls and lectures.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Only some building are great (probably 1/3)

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms are excellent. Like others have said, North Quad (motel suite style) is more for partiers and bros. South Quad (tower suite style) is fairly quiet and many people don't drink, especially in Stark, the substance-free dorm. I am a huge fan of Mid Quad, which has the most recently renovated dorms and a great residential culture because of the more traditional hall-style dorms. It's somewhere in between NQ and SQ in terms of noise and how much people party.

On campus housing is expensive, but almost no one lives off campus. There are not many options, and you miss out on a lot of the community when you live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The RA's are super chill. You can rip a bong in North and no one will do anything about it. Be wary of leaving paraphernalia out all of your dorm, because the building attendants will sometimes report these possessions to the administration while cleaning rooms. If you're not completely reckless, dorm life at CMC is a great time, no matter which quad you live in. I will say, North and Mid are much more social than South, but there is definitely an option for every taste of noise-level, party abundance, and proximity to various other campus buildings.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Crown hall is by far the nicest dorm on campus. But regardless, all the dorms are very nice, spacious, and clean. We have dorm janitors that come every day and clean the halls. They also clean our rooms every week

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

CMC is a small campus, but the types of dorms vary a lot. There are dorms for those who love to party, dorms for people who love to study, and dorms for people who are somewhere in between.

There are three basic areas that most students live in: North Quad, Mid Quad, and South Quad. North Quad is definitely the most social of any of the dorm regions; any night of the week, you can find someone partying in North Quad. North Quad dorms are suite style (four doubles and a bathroom).

Mid Quad is a marriage between North and South Quad: sometimes it parties, and sometimes it’s quiet. It’s a popular place for freshmen to live because it's so easy to meet people. Mid Quad dorms are hall style, with a mix of singles and doubles sharing a big central bathroom.

South Quad is the quietest place on campus; with mostly upperclassmen, it has a more serious air. South Quad also has Stark Hall, which is the only substance-free dorm on campus. South Quad dorms are called “The Towers” because they are eight floors (six higher than any other building on campus) with 12 people (a mix of singles and doubles) on each floor with a central bathroom.

For seniors, there are really nice four-person apartments on the edge of campus, which are part of student housing.Dorm size and quality varies a lot, as some buildings have been recently renovated and others are due for improvements.
