4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are pretty big in general, and even if you have a triple, you usually will only have two people living in the room.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: People dig on campus housing a lot, but the truth is it's almost perfect. The dorms, which are admittedly a little run down, are spacious and architecturally interesting except for Marlboro Gardens, which is actually just a double-wide trailer. Everything is pretty close together. A long walk to class would be anything over 3 minutes here. Social atmosphere ranges from 'quiet, but genial' to 'downright raucous' depending on the dorm. Residents are a mixed bag. Some are great and also clean, but there are also quite a few spoiled kids who don't know how to clean up after themselves. As a result of that, some of the dorms are exceedingly dingy. The cottages and houses upperclassmen may live in are great except for their incredibly thin walls.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Chem free option for student housing, party dorms are less clean, less rules by individual charter, off campus options nearby, housing in the town of brattleboro nearby (20 mins) and wilmington (15) are also available but not ideal in late winter due to weather

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the rooms are very nice, but some are very small. The bathrooms are absolutely horrible and not every dorm has a kitchen or laundry.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms range in quality and appeal. Most dorms need updating in terms of maintenance related concerns, but are generally cozy and comfortable. there are some updates to amenities that are nice but the rooms are large and all the dorms are very close to other buildings on campus so it is easy to get around.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Welcome to Camp Marlboro! Most of the housing on Marlboro's hillside campus is rustic and homey. Because the majority of our dorms are older and contain less "brick and vinyl" than other colleges, the result is a place students can make their own. Often, dorm rooms at Marlboro are extra comfy because of the wooden walls and large windows that are a part of most rooms. Also, each dorm is small in population, which results in a family-like atmosphere to come home to. The bathroom facilities are average, but again, have been used, and they are a little creaky.

Generally, students are very satisfied with their housing arrangements. Most dorms become a place students can call home. Dorms at Marlboro are not fancy when it comes to exercise suites, spas, pools, or game rooms. In fact, none of the dorms have these amenities. But most have a common area with a television (for movies and video games only) and couches for parties and get-togethers. The dorm rooms here are cozy and comfortable, but if luxury living is what you're looking for, then living on campus is not your best option.
