3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pacelli is literally the worst place to live on campus. But once you've finished your freshmen year your other options aren't bad.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I felt my freshman year dorm was more spacious and the building was in better shape than this year. The Millore house is run down I feel and not as appealing as the other buildings. It defenitely needs updating. The students and R/A are very friendly and the promotion of family is stressed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I have been in the dorms and some are nicer than others. I remember it being extremely hot in Dolan! But other than that the dorms were well kept and the students on the floors were very welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: From my experience thus far I believe the atmosphere and dorms themselves are everything and more a college student expects their first year.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is nice and spacious. I loved where I lived no matter where it was. I believe it's the environment that makes the experience. The girls I lived with made my time in the dorms the best.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

As a small school, John Carroll is a tight community, and living on campus makes students even closer. The two greatest things about living on campus include getting to be with your friends and being only five minutes away from classes. The worst part—you have to buy a meal plan. On campus, there are eight dorms available that are all coed but gender-separated by floor and wing. There are two freshman dorms (Murphy and Sutowski), a mixed dorm (Pacelli), upperclassman dorms (Dolan, Millor, Campion, and Hamlin), and apartment or suite-style housing for upperclassmen (Bernet). Overall, the dorms are old but in decent shape. Residence Life makes improvements every year, and they continue to update buildings. Common lounges have been remodeled and look better than ever. One of the most recent additions has been the remodeled Campion classroom, which is a large study room with a kitchen and two big-screen TVs located in the basement of Campion Hall.

Living on campus has its highs and lows. It is nice being so close to everything on campus, but having to purchase a meal plan and the strictness of the dorms (although not terribly enforced) can be a burden to some students. After sophomore or junior years, a lot of students choose to live off campus. Renting apartments is popular and renting duplexes located on Warrensville Center Road is also something a lot of students do.
