5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm culture is the best part of campus housing.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: On the outside, Mudd housing might seem passable. Heater provided, AC provided, a maid that comes and clean the lounges and bathrooms on a biweekly basis... but it all really depends on what dorm you end up in. Most of the dorms have people or legacies of being disgusting.

The most troublesome dorms are West, North, and Linde. They have broken glass in the courtyards. The smell of weed is always present in the dorm. There are bottles of alcohol left in the lounge and when people get drunk, they spill alcohol all over the floor. They play beer pong and they leave the cups out there for days, for the cleaning people to clean up.

Sontag, North, and East are dorms that are very exclusive and unless you are a part of the culture there, you should never go there or you will be ostracized. In short, the social atmosphere at Mudd is stifling.

The cost is ridiculous. It costs over $1000 to live on campus PER MONTH. That goes for if you are in a single, a double, a triple, OR EVEN A QUAD (where there are four people to a room that is the size of 2 doubles). You will never be allowed to live off campus because they are building a new dorm, so it is guaranteed that the school will do everything they can to force you to live on campus so that they can make the most money they can.

Convenience is horrible, there are no places to eat out that are less than a mile's walk away, and you get tired of the meal plan quick. It is extremely hard to get off the meal plan at Mudd.

The worst thing about Campus Housing at Mudd is how you get your room. There is this thing called Room Draw that breaks up friendships, causes betrayals, and forces the quietest, most innocent students to live in dorms where people smoke weed and other serious substances right outside their room doors, where drunk people pee in the bushes right outside their doors, and where they have to leave their dorms because there is rock music blasting right next to their rooms at 1am on a Tuesday night.

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't exactly the prettiest, but they're by no means unlivable. I really enjoy my room and suite and I love the dorm culture.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Really reach out to people in your dorms. Each dorm has a pretty great community.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Many people claim that Mudd is not a pretty place, and if all you want are looks, don't come here. And, of course, it's an expensive school.

That said, the people here are incredibly nice. Since it's a small school, you get to know a lot of people, and there is no dorm that is inherently "better" than the others. They just all have their own distinctive personalities.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Each dorm at Mudd has a very different style, and people are sometimes stereotyped by the dorm they live in. North Hall is the jock dorm, and both West and Linde can be characterized as party dorms. Linde is home to many of the stoners and drunks on campus. West likes to burn random things, such as couches or Christmas trees, and in spite of its frisky nature, boasts the highest GPA of any dorm at Mudd.

The outer dorms of Case, Sontag, and Atwood are usually quiet. Once in a while, there will be a suite party in Atwood, but usually on weekends. South dorm is completely substance-free and provides a very stable environment—if you want to study, go to South, home of the unicyclists. East is a world all in its own, where D&D tournaments and role-playing games reign supreme—at least that's the myth told to visiting students. Easties are generally characterized as the “nerdiest of nerds,” and they usually can be seen climbing trees or fighting with duct tape weapons. The dorms are all well-maintained, and there’s not much to complain about in regards to facilities. All of the dorms have a proctor or two to take care of business, and dorm meetings often turn into parties on their own. There’s a lot of inter-dorm animosity that's all in good fun. On IM sports nights, you can often hear the dorms chanting back and forth with heated pride. But whatever your personality or interests may be, you can be sure to find a niche in one of the dorms here.
