4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Clean, well organized, easy to maneuver, close to neighboring buildings, friendly environment, and good food.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is really nice. Some of it is a little outdated but the school is slowly renovating some of those buildings, like the College Park Apartments. I have been very happy with all my living arrangements at Ramapo.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I definitely enjoyed my housing experience at Ramapo. Last year, I actually didn't have a roommate and loved having extra living space on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We have some of the best dorms in the country, the only problem is that there is very little social life, and I feel like I could make a difference with the opportunity to live on campus, which I can't afford to do next year, unless I were to win a scholarship. I lived on campus my freshman year and it was extremely convenient, but I'm not sure if I can continue with this luxury.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. It gave me the opportunity to meet new people and experience what it is like to live on my own. The dorms at Ramapo College of New Jersey of one of the nicest freshman dorms I've ever seen. They are relatively new and there is a lot of space. The food at the school isn't the best but nothing will ever compare to my mom's food. I felt like I fit right in at the school. I will never forget my first year at college and all of the amazing people I met. Housing was relatively easy. Not everyone gets to live where they want to, which is a bummer but it's not the end of the world. Ramapo is one of the cheaper state schools in New Jersey, which is a perk as well. The worst dorms to live in are pine and linden, but even those dorms are not as bad as some I have seen. Everyone wants to live in Laurel, The Village or the College Park Apartments because they are so nice. The sophomores dorms, Overlook, is absolutely beautiful.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Housing at Ramapo College is guaranteed for all students in good academic and disciplinary standing, and can be extremely competitive and arduous if there is an odd number of people attempting to get housing. Students must have the proper number of people applying in their group, or they simply will not get placed in the room as a group. 

Most residences are split up into rooms of four students, with Pine being the exception (six students), and bedrooms tend to house two students, with Bischoff and Mackin Halls being the exception (three students). The dormitories, even at their most crowded, still are spacious and well maintained. Each room has its own bathroom, so those concerned with showering in groups or in a public restroom needn't worry. The housing projects tend to be new, and those buildings that have been with the campus since its inception have been renovated since. There is no available off-campus housing, but there is a variety of on-campus apartments for those who would like a less dorm-oriented approach to housing. The College Park Apartments are available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and feature two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a kitchen/living area.
