The dorm facilities at Lock Haven University are very outdated and need a lot of improvement. All of the dorms range in size and structure. Russell Hall has the largest rooms, but it's the smallest dormitory on campus. The bathrooms are old fashioned and need to be updated. Lock Haven is located in the mountains, and the dorm rooms look like they were made out of the trees that surround them. Everything in the dorm rooms is wooden and doesn’t appeal to the modern era. In a double room, there isn’t much space, except for the rooms in Russell Hall.
Overall, the dorm facilities are cleaned once a week. When it comes to walking to class, it’s a struggle. High, North, McEntire, and Gross halls are all located atop a hill, and there are windy steps that lead down to campus. When it comes to the wintertime, many students have trouble making it safely down to campus. It’s more of a hazard to live in these dorms. The social environment in dorms all depends on who lives in which dorm, but all in all, memories are always made in the dorms. In terms of construction developments, Lock Haven plans to expand campus housing in the near future.
