2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most buildings are nice, but the dorms are old.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not really a good idea. The walls are super thin, so you can always hear other people, even when they are just talking. The bathrooms are pretty scary, and the water system is really messed up. There are basically two settings in the shower, cold or steaming hot. The buildings are very old, and not very inviting. The location of most of the on-campus buildings are pretty good though. You have a pretty short walk to all your classes. Except the nicest on-campus place to live is secluded from everyone and everything. So you really have to make a tough decision, live in a really nice place and not be close to anyone or anything (even your classes), or live in a nasty place but be close to everything.

Campus Housing: Housing isn't the best housing

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think the rooms are pretty average size. Unfortunately, depending on what hall you live in, the bathrooms are not cleaned well! Frost Hall is always extremely clean, Simpson is also pretty good (it's bathrooms were also recently renovated) but Annapolis Hall and Cumberland Hall tend to be pretty dirty.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms are fun, they are always clean and the space is adequate. I enjoy living here because I am so close to my friends in the cluster/quad I live in. The dorms are really pricey for in-state-tuition students however, they offer free laundry and a complimentary microwave and refrigerators. Almost every week the RA's have fun activities for the residents that allow us to mingle with other floors and other clusters. The housing application and the whole process is really easy and self explanatory except when it comes to figuring out which dorm best suits you, but Mrs. Susie in the Residence life office is very helpful when you need it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The dorms are very clean. Each person is responsible for his or her own room. For the dorms, there is a housekeeper that cleans the bathrooms and vacuums the carpets in the hallways and lounges. The housekeeper will not come into the students’ rooms to clean up the mess, the same for Edgewood Commons. The whole building is maintained by a crew, but they will not come into individual rooms to clean. The dorm rooms vary in size. Upperclassmen have the option of having a single room; however, most freshmen and sophomores live with at least one roommate. Some dorms offer triple rooms, but the majority of dorm rooms is doubles.

All of the dorms are very close to students' classes. Sowers Hall (dorm for STEM students) is very close to Compton Science Center because bulks of these students’ classes are in this building. As for the other dorms, they are still very close to all of the buildings. Edgewood Commons is not very close to the classrooms at all. However, there is an FSU shuttle that goes from Edgewood to different stops on campus. This helps Edgewood Commons students get to class on time if they do not have a car. The environment of living in a dorm on campus is a very different experience. All students bring some sort of outdoor activity (Frisbee, football, baseball, etc.) to amuse themselves when it gets nice out. Regardless of who you know on campus, if someone is outside playing, then anyone and everyone can join in. The students enjoy making new friends, so they do not mind including complete strangers in their outdoor activities.
