4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus, in my opinion, is one of the best scenarios for college living. You're no more than a 10 min. walk or bus ride from class and most of everything you need from dining halls to fitness centers and recreation are also within walking distance.

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus. It was very convenient for getting to class, eating, and going to the gym. It also was a cool way to meet new people. The rooms were small, but came with beds, desks, dressers, closets, clean bathrooms, refrigerator/freezer, and microwave. The bathrooms and halls were cleaned a few times a week, which was great. The RAs were a little annoying, but did their jobs. The dorms also offered TV lounges, laundry rooms, mail and package delivery rooms, and study lounges.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: In the suite bathrooms you have to bring a lot of your own things such as hand soap and other toiletries. The rooms aren't as big as you'd expect them to be. The social atmosphere in the suite is nice because you get to know a smaller amount of people. The housing process is ok, it is a tad bit confusing because you can apply for a residence hall or a village. If you apply for both you will be placed in a village instead of a residence hall. Also for the roommate selection process you can choose someone, but if you applied to live in a village and the roommate you asked for didn't. You will be placed with someone else. If this happens to you CALL THE HOUSING OFFICE!!!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The convenience of much of the housing options is impossible to beat, however many of the options have very small rooms. You become very adjusted to the smaller room sizes, especially in the tri-towers where I lived this year. Bragaw is definitely the top choice among all the people I know. Many students move to off-campus housing after their freshman year for more freedom, but after looking at it from a financial standpoint, it makes more sense to live on-campus. The only substantial savings you get from living off-campus is the $1,500-3,000 you save on a meal plan which are somewhat overpriced. I believe that you could end up saving quite a bit of money by just buying your own food at the on-campus restaurants and dinning halls.

Campus Housing: Could be way better, but the location is always nice

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

NC State's dorms are about average; though this depends on students' standards. Owen and Tucker residence halls are located on Central Campus and are reserved for new incoming students. Bagwell and Berry, located on East Campus, are reserved for the Honors Village program. Sullivan, located on West Campus, is for the Scholars Village program. The housing Web site (www.ncsu.edu/housing) is helpful and easy to navigate. Some will prefer suite-style rooms to hallway-style rooms where everyone on the hall shares a large bathroom. There are many dorms without air conditioning, as well, and this is something to seriously consider when picking your top choices. Some dorms are more convenient to have if located on Central Campus, but what is an extra five minutes of walking if you prefer to have a cool room to walk into in order to escape the Triangle Area heat? Each dorm is in good shape, for the most part; it is just important to look up the location in relation to your classes, the air conditioning and smoking status, and the alcohol policy to best fit your preferences. Also, some dorms have computer labs in the lobby, like Sullivan. Having a computer lab in your hall or a nearby dorm may be convenient if you don't have a computer to bring. Wood Hall may be one dorm to avoid, however, since it is one of the farthest dorms from most buildings, and it has something of a roach problem.
