Dorm life at OLLU receives positive remarks. The dorms are very livable—there is plenty of desk, closet, drawer, bed, and personal space, as well as Internet access. Plus, unlike many dorms, all bathrooms are either private or shared with one other room. The dorms are also great places to socialize and make more connections, and each dorm has at least one lounge area. While Centennial and Flores hall are usually described as the nicest—they are newer so are more modern and spacious—all the dorms are good, and there aren’t any to avoid. Students 21 or older can live in Providence, which is all singles and is described as a great studying place. There are also some singles in Centennial, but they’re for upperclassmen only.
One negative is that none of the dorm rooms has carpeting (except St. Ann's), so echoes are very prevalent. Drinking is prohibited in the dorm rooms, except Providence, since all residents there are 21 or older. Basically, the only two reasons a person would choose a certain dorm over another is for cost reasons (a triple in Centennial would be the best because the cost would be split between three roommates) or because that person likes privacy. If the latter is the case, Providence or Centennial would be the best because they offer single rooms.
