4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing isn't too bad depending on the building you are living in. Facilities usually takes forever and a day when asked to fix something in a student's room. Social atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. All buildings are close to one another so it is very convenient when going to class or other educational/social buildings.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: i do not live on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are convientely located around the class buildings so it's easy to get around deposits the bad weather and travel commutes. Living on campus is great

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms on campus are nice, but the process of obtaining a room is always a hassle.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus is nice, the Dorms Are Cozy, a great environment to study

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The College of Mount Saint Vincent offers five residence halls to choose from. Living on campus is extremely convenient for students who wish to have easy access to classes, dining halls, the library, club meetings, the fitness center, and dance studio. It also gives students plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle with their fellow students at any given time. However, campus housing can be a burden to pay for and does not always provide the peace and cleanliness you may desire.

Students agree that Seton is the best place to live on campus, but it is only offered to upperclassmen. It comes fully equipped with communal kitchens, bathrooms, and lounges, just like the other four halls, but sets itself apart with its central air system and Italian Renaissance style. On the other hand, Alumnae was voted the worst place to reside due to its small size and unsanitary living conditions. As for location, none of the halls are really at an inconvenience because the campus is so small, so students are able to reach their classes easily, despite some minor complaints about the hills they must walk up and down.
