Housing is okay. They need to make improvements to the housing also. I was in an honors dorm, Kennedy Hall, and all the rooms were smaller than any other dorms on campus. Also there are no computer labs or anything in the dorm lobbies, like you would see at most college campuses. Housing is also expensive! More than 11,000 a year for room and board.. that's crazy! The also should just renovate and build new dorms. Hampton University should build building up, rather than out. There will be more space if you build up, but they don't want to tear down any buildings, because of the historicness of them! SMH.

Hampton University isn't where I wanted to be, but it definitely is where I needed to be! The experience here is unparalleled, and is something that is worth the tuition. The campus is beautiful, the social scene is pretty cool, the only drawback is the administration.

College life isn't at all like you see on TV screens. Waking up every day and walking through rain in order to get to class is a daily task itself. Hampton University has offered me plenty of opportunities, I won't get anywhere else. There's a vibe that you get on this campus that is very unique compared to other campuses around the country. Friendliness is a motto that's preached and lived on the campus of Hampton University. Apathy is no where in sight on this campus! school spirit is always at an all time high. Furthermore, I wouldn't have wanted to make any other choice in colleges.
