3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I'm a commuter, but I've heard good things about the campus housing from peers.

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: OLLU is not a place I will ever send my younger siblings to. The education system lacks discipline, companies do not hire from OLLU due to the students not prepared. It's not the students fault, it is the programs. For example, only one student who graduated with a Biology degree went on to further their education, due to their high mcat scores. All the rest of the students ended up with regular jobs, call centers, used car sales, etc. It's very sad that so many parents and students spend so much money on their education but do not get a degree to even help them in today's job market. Do not send your kids here.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms do not have kitchens, there isn't food available at reasonable evening times. The dorms are old.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wish it wasn't so expensive

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love Campus Housing! It's great the community is so tightly knit, if you ever need help there will be people to help if you just ask.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
