4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living on campus! The rooms are big and spacious, the people here are great, and the overall feel of campus is good. The rooms are all very close to the buildings where classes are, the activities held by the Residence Hall Association are fun, and the process of housing is easy. The only problem would be that it gets a little bit expensive.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: lots of bugs in shower, fees for people who talk during quiet hours, only have swipe ins on womens side of building not mens side

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms aren't all air conditioned. The cost is somewhat high as well, especially since a majority of them are rather dated. The real problem though is the upkeep. A few of the dorms that aren't even THAT old have started to age rather quickly. I don't think they have ever cleaned the HVAC systems, so it's extremely dusty.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms could use updating, especially the bathrooms.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends where you live, if you live in Dolan and Pacelli (first year) they are smaller, if you live in Campion and Hamlin (Hamlin is greek only and Campion is first year) is bigger to compensate it being the farthest walk on campus. Murphy (upper class) is very very nice, it was just built. Bernet and Millor (Sophomore) are big because they are triple and quads. Stutowski is decent for being sophomore dorms

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.
