5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Ramapo College has the best housing in New Jersey. As a freshman I shared a room with two roomates, had a fridge/freezer, microwave, and a personal bathroom; and that was just as a freshman!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We have the best dorms in the state and is high ranked in the country so that explained itself.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are old but regardless are great

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everything is ok except the amount of space in certain dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is convenient to get to classes and paycaf or Birch. It is right near the Ramapo Reservation which is a great place to go to when it is nice out. Housing is relatively easy as long as the deadlines are followed. Living there is very expensive so unless you have a big scholarship or a lot of money I suggest commuting if possible. But it is harder to make close friends if you commute, but usually it gets easier throughout the year.

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.
