Campus Housing: Life on campus is really good. I am home right now and I missed my room back on campus already. The campus can get pretty quiet during the weekends but overall it is great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Life on campus is great despite the possible outburst with a roommate now and again. I like to live on campus because i can more easily focus on my homework and do not have to worry about bad weather. Also i feel i get the college experience and have made more friendships due to living on campus.

Campus Housing: Bold Hall is the best place to stay. It is updated and revoted, clean and close to the academic building. Schneider, Mahler, and Peters aren't the greatest. They flood, they're old, have stains everywhere in the dorms. They do not renovate or fix problems inside of the doors. Also, there isn't enough parking spaces.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

A college dorm usually conjures up an image of a small, cramped cinder-block room. La Roche's dorm rooms break that mold. They are spacious, fully furnished, carpeted, and equipped with private bathrooms and plenty of closet space. The air conditioning and heating in each room is student-controlled. High-speed Internet access and cable TV services are provided—students just have to bring a computer and television. All of the dorms are located on the East Campus, making it easy to get to and from classes. On the negative side, the poor overhead lighting adds a touch of a prison-like feeling, but students are welcome to bring their own lamps to avoid feeling institutionalized. Also, the residents here often complain that the walls are too thin and that you can hear everything that goes on in a neighboring room, which is especially annoying when trying to study or sleep.

There is a "no sex on campus" policy instituted due to the College's Roman Catholic affiliation, and students of the opposite sex are not allowed in one another's rooms after 2 a.m. Not to worry though—not too many people get caught breaking this rule. Generally speaking, students at La Roche enjoy the on-campus housing, and most are very happy they decided to reside on campus.
