4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The building I lived in Freshmen year was right in the middle of campus which was super convenient!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was in the Village. No air conditioning. Yuck.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is not bad, my freshman dorm had air conditioning and some other buildings didn't so I don't have much to complain about. We the cleaning crew came in everyday to vacuum and clean the bathroom and I never once saw a bug that I had to deal with.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Always people to talk to, RAs are great. :)

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in campus is great, you have everything you need at your feet, living off camps wouldn't be the same.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Dorm life is largely enjoyed by the underclassmen, though this depends on both the location and the inclusion (or lack) of air conditioning. East Campus dorms, including Chesapeake, Potomac, and Shenandoah Hall (aka the honors dorm), offer some of the most beautiful views overlooking the campus. These dorms are also in close proximity to the usually packed recreation center, just minutes away. The downside to these dorms is the time it takes to get to the main part of campus. Unfortunately, you have to give a little to live in luxury, and in this case, this means sacrificing 15 minutes to arrive on class punctually.

If you’re really looking to land the best, Wayland, Wompler, Logan, and Converse offer not only air conditioning, but also a prime location for classes and a view of campus overlooking the spacious Quad. Of course, Lakeside dorms and Village dorms provide a grimmer portrait of on-campus living. Devoid of air conditioning, with kids living in tight, close quarters, Eagle Hall in particular has sometimes been referred to as a "tower of sex, booze, and parties."
