5 College Junior

Campus Housing: We're located in Lancaster county and we're affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. With that said, Etown campus is one of the safest and most convenient schools I looked at. We guarantee housing for all four years and we have 8 different housing options for our traditional students here. Within those 8, 6 of them are dorms and or housing has tons of Liberal Learning Communities in them. We do not have any particular freshman dorm, and I as a student absolutely love our dorms.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You get very close to everyone in your building. All of the buildings are coed so that is nice.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing options offered are Quads, Apartments and dorms. Upperclassmen usually live in the quads and apartments. Dorms are usually a mixed bag. Some are great such as Ober and Brinser. I've lived in schlosser and it wasn't terrible but it's better than some others.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm buildings and housing options are all pretty good. Some things are outdated but still work very well. What living options have varies but there is an upside and downside to each option, which makes them almost balanced. One thing that causes variation is your RA. Some are a lot more lenient, which can be a good thing or bad thing depending on who your neighbors are.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is not great. There are no options in which you have your own room and the bedrooms are small, but it facilitates forming friendships with your roommates and neighbors.

Also Available
Another option that attracts students is the Student Directed Learning Communities program, or SDLC. This program consists of college-owned houses next to the college for students who want to live off campus and who are willing to give back to the community. To live in these houses, students are required to have a set goal and plan of action to help give back to the community. For instance, one house was themed with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and helped out Elizabethtown's troubled children.
Available for Rent
Microfridge units can be rented from the Campus Residence Association for an annual fee.
