Campus Housing: Housing is fairly strict- you must be a senior or or be 21 to live off campus. However, the college has a number of apartment complexes on campus you can live on for you junior year, so you won't be in the dorms. These are pretty nice and many seniors live in them as well. Housing is done by a lottery system with total number of credits of all the roommates added up, so take a full course load each term and transfering in AP or community college credits will significantly move you up the list. Otherwise, you might be stuck with your 5th or 6th choice for housing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are small, but having bunk beds really helps save space!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I like the apartment that I live in however there are a few things that could be better. There are some relatively new apartments on campus that I live in, but I do not think that the they are a good value for what I have to pay to live in them. I also find it a little bit strange that I have to live on campus until I am a junior unless I an exception.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: really nice. big rooms. some dorms are better than others. I have to share a closet but my friends in other halls don't.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is a good variety of campus housing, but there are some things that could be improved.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Each housing option at Linfield has its perks. For example, even the older, traditional brick buildings have been renovated, so the rooms are spacious and updated. Students also like the lounges, with amenities such as TVs and DVD players, pingpong tables, and pianos. Overall, Elkinton and Terrell are the newest and nicest dorms on campus, which are usually occupied by upperclassmen. Generally, on-campus housing is preferred over off-campus housing since many students are involved with campus activities and like the convenience of being close to the action; plus, students also enjoy the sense of camaraderie among all the students living on campus.

The dorms at Linfield range from the East Coast, traditional, brick buildings to the newer, modern halls. All of the older dorms have been either renovated or remodeled. Linfield offers study lounges, laundry facilities, and wireless Internet. All residence halls have card access for outside doors, public call-boxes, lounges with TVs, expanded basic cable, kitchens, and recycling facilities. Room options are singles, doubles, triples, quads, and suites. Some dorms have inside bike storage, pianos in lounges, living/dining areas, and private baths and kitchenettes in the rooms. A number of dorms have window seats available, sinks in rooms, walk-in closets, elevators, built-in bunk beds, and outside patios. Some dorms even have gas fireplaces!
