5 College Junior

Campus Housing: After attaining sophomore status it was very easy to get into the housing that I wanted. Some of the most sought after housing options are extremely difficult to get, but no more than at any other university. Every option is excellent, clean, and comfortable. And if there's ever a problem, campus enhancement (not just maintenance) will handle it swiftly.

Campus Housing: While the housing itself is very high quality, the whole system is biased. My school offers dorms on different levels called tiers, so tier one is just your basic housing, tier two you get a bigger room or your own room depending on where you live, tier three is your own room and is even bigger, and then tier four is obviously the biggest and the best rooms. However for every tier you move up it costs extra money, and a lot of it. Moving up to tier two would cost me about an extra $3000 a year. As someone who is not trying to pay off student loans my whole life I am choosing to stay tier one. The worst part is for sophomore there is no available housing on the main campus for tier 1 students, forcing me to move into dorm down the street from main campus. While technically I will still be living "on campus" I will either have to drive or take a trolley to the main campus for all my classes, most of the food options, the library and its a hassle. My only tier 1 option on campus would be to move into a freshman dorm and live with freshman, which obviously I don't want to do. The whole process of actually selecting my dorm for next year was frustrating beyond belief. The actually signing up for my dorm too was also stressful and difficult because of the way some people get priority housing and get to choose before everyone else so you have to wait and pray that the place you want to live hasn't already been filled. Most of my friends and old roommates could not get into the dorm they wanted.

Campus Housing: Freshmen housing is great, but you upperclassmen (sophomores and up) typically end up living in university owned housing off campus. You are required to live in university owned housing for the first three years, and most people end up living in it all four years. There are not many other options.

Housing for sophomores is the worst, because they choose last (of the upperclassmen, upperclassmen are not allowed to live in freshmen housing).

York and Blessing are the best freshmen dorms, but the only one that is really bad is Finch, which is all freshmen boys.

If you want nice housing or a single, you're going to have to pay more. Housing is split up into tiers based on how much it costs, and there is not much of the lowest cost tier available for upperclassmen.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On-campus housing at High Point is incredible! All of the dorms have either been recently renovated or are brand-new. Living at High Point is unlike living in any other college dorm. The college housing is beautifully maintained, spacious, and upgraded. Even the standard dorms on campus are nicer than what most college students live in during all four years of school. All on-campus housing is extremely convenient when it comes to getting to and from classes. Since High Point is a smaller school, the longest walk you might have from your dorm to class would be about 10 minutes, walking at a leisurely pace from one side of campus to the other. The University Center is probably the most convenient location in which to live. Encased in one huge building are three different eateries, a movie theater, arcade, and a study floor. Also, since the campus is so rapidly expanding, the UC moves ever closer to becoming the actual center of campus.

If you live off campus, it is a little less convenient to get to class, but that’s only because you have to drive or take the trolley. If you live off campus, then it is beneficial to have your car at school with you so you can come and go from campus as you please. If you don’t have a car or just don’t feel like having one at school, then taking the trolley is an easy way to get where you need to go, as long as you plan ahead and check the schedule for when it’s arriving and where.

Did You Know?
Housing is great and usually easy for everyone except for sophomores. Since they're lowest on the ladder when it comes to credits, they get the last pick for housing. Although things generally work out and people get moved around to places they actually want to be, it can be a bit stressful.
