3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think dormitories at Juniata are descent. If you are a senior, you will get a permission for off-campus housing which doesn't require meal plans.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If you have a great roommate, you can have a great time anywhere. Dorms are very standard, and upperclassmen priority is a huge perk. There are issues and great things with all of our options, including Cloister's incessant bedbug problems and Sherwood's gross lingering smell.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms are bigger than on most campuses

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are old but are well kept for their age.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very disappointing, especially when compared to that of nearby universities.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Noncommuting freshmen are required to live on campus, and this is a good thing, as it's the best way to get sucked into the Juniata bubble and meet the people who will become your family over the next few years. There's an RA for every floor of every building to help you if needed, and most are laid-back and pretty cool about helping you with your woes. The rooms can be a bit cramped at times, especially in Sunderland with its extra furniture. If you're a girl with tons of stuff and you don't mind a bit of estrogen overload, head to Lesher—the rooms are bigger and there's plenty of closet space. Tussey and Terrace are usually freshman favorites and have the nicest bathrooms on campus. Listen to the students who tell you to stay away from Sherwood.

When you're an upperclassman, you'll probably want to head to Cloister or South, which both have great atmospheres. Cloister is older, centrally located, character-laden, and exclusive to upperclassmen, while South lets the ladies and the gents live side-by-side and has the largest rooms by far. Most of the seniors who stay on campus live in these two places. Finally, all dorms are only a short walk from all of the key places on campus, except for East, which is a bit farther away. East is the requisite party dorm; it's fine if you want to experience life in a suite with seven other people, but weekends there are loud, which prompts many to choose just to party there and live somewhere else.

Did You Know?
  • All Juniata housing is smoke free.
  • Cloister is home to legends and traditions alike, as "Storming of the Arch" and the annual Haunted House occur in and around its walls. This is also the dorm where you'll find the requisite rumors of a friendly campus ghost, though whether this is actually true remains to be seen—or heard.
