4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is a large variety with regards to living options and choosing where to dorm.

One building is extremely old and smells horrible, the Quad. Mostly athletes love there.

However, the other buildings are incredible!

The hill and BC are both good qualities dorms. I've really enjoyed living in them.

The townhouses and tge east hall suites are obviously the nicest because they are so new to campus.

I cannot wait to be able to explore them in the next two years.

They are placed conveniently to the rest of campus and it is extremely easy to get to class on time.

The social atmosphere is what you choose to make it.

I have a lot of friends and enjoy what is offered to do on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I like the upperclassmen option dorms because they are nicer and have larger living areas.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The people on my floor are a great group of kids. My RA is awesome and does a great job at being fair. My building is the best building to live in it is so convenient to everything on campus. I wish the campus had more places on campus to eat and more things to do on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It ranges from great to terrible. Some dorms are in great shape while others are literally falling apart inside. That said, most people on campus are decent at the very least.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Whitcomb completely sucks, but I hear that Bowler Hall and the Quad have relatively good housing. So pretty much, everywhere is okay-ish except Whitcomb.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Since Hiram is a residential campus, there are many on-campus options for students. For first-year students, it is common for them to live in a traditional double room. This promotes community, especially when freshmen live on all-freshman floors. The cleanest freshman dorm is Booth-Centennial, but the dorms with the best sense of community are the ones with floor lounges—Whitcomb and Miller. Henry Hall has a reputation for being favorable among the quieter, more reserved students, whereas the Quad is popular for the rowdy type.

If you are a sophomore, you have the option of living in the apartment-style dorms in East Hall, which are the newest dorms on campus. You can also opt to live in Bowler Hall, which is the most historic dorm on campus. As a junior or senior, you can choose to live in the new Townhouses, which are technically owned by campus but are independent of the school and come equipped with kitchens and their own parking lot.
