4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Fairview was great to live in. It was close and convenient to all the classes besides east campus. But all the dorms are far from east campus. I enjoyed having my own private bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen area, and living room space in my dorm in Fairview. A lot of people in the building were very friendly. It is a bit expensive but it was worth it because it is as of now the only building with all those amenities and Wi-Fi throughout the whole dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in a suite at my college. The dorm rooms provide a double bedroom with a shared bathroom for 2 students. The size of the dorm is adequate for 2 students with desk area and bed. The down side of the dorm is the internet connection is extremely poor. You are kicked off the internet frequently, even when taking an online test. Additionally, the cost and convenience is pretty average to other college suites.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is fine but older. There's nothing particularly wrong with the housing but it could use a renovation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a little old but they are still nice.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its pros and cons. The dorms are really outdated and need to be remodeled. The suites are really overpriced for what they are and everything breaks in there. Smith hall, Woolridge, and McEntire are the nicest of the traditional dorms. The dorms do not have wireless internet besides for certain parts of Smith hall which is annoying. The internet is not the most reliable. Living in the dorms can be fun at times, I've made some close friends from my hallway. There are always different people to hang out with. The cost is a little overpriced for what you are getting though. I like living on campus since it is closer to the classrooms than many off campus houses and apartments are. The housing process is a little complicated but it's not the worst.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The dorm facilities at Lock Haven University are very outdated and need a lot of improvement.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.
