Variety Is the Spice of Life – I love living on campus! Last year I lived in Mayfield the all girls dorm on campus. Mayfield is more than a dorm it is like a family. Many of the guys on campus choose to live in J. Alvin, the all male dorm, their freshman year. I have many friends who live in Walker, which is attached to the Walker Student Center. Walker is one of the newer housing options, and it features two floors of female dorms and one floor of male dorms. The newest dorm on campus is North, it also features floors for females as well as for males. North is often the first choice of athletes because it is the dorm closest to the health complex. There are also townhouses available to the upperclassmen, as well as housing options for married students.

Duplexes, Townhouses, and Apartments...Oh My! The off-campus housing availability is nearly limitless. Prices vary, but most are affordable. It is also very easy to live with multiple people and split the rent. Many of the landlords understand that it is a college town, and they are very good working with students and meeting their needs. Most places are next to campus and near restaurants and supermarkets.

Basically...

Mayfield: girls dorm, great community life, communal bathrooms, building old and needs to be renovated/ torn down. Close to most buildings

J. Alvin: boys dorm: great community life, building high quality, great layout that encourages interaction, I hear they have a climbing wall in the basement, close to everything, long legacy of awesomeness

Walker: Very new and high quality, closets have no doors?!?, easy access to all of campus and same building as Cali, mail, student center, etc. less rowdy community, suite style bathrooms

Hutch: chill community life, people friendly but stereotyped as introverted, nicest rooms, furthest from most things on campus (to get to the cathedral takes 8 minutes), athletes like to room here, suite and communal bathroom options, nice lounge areas.
