3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had stayed in O'Connell hall and the three lounges were pretty nice. The building itself is a little outdated and there is a community bathroom but it isn't too shabby. The rooms were about an average size for freshman dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms were fine. I was in De'Smet and I enjoyed the set up of the room. The community bathrooms were not my favorite and the showers were always gross. However, there was always people around in the halls or lounges that you could hang out with.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Th best. And the highest prices.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All housing is close to your class since you can get to one end of the campus to the other well within 10 minutes. The only housing with an elevator is West Hall which is open to upperclassmen. It's pretty easy to do the housing process you just need to make sure you get it done early to get what you want.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a pretty average dorm experience, the dorms are not awful and not extraordinary. It is difficult living with 6 people in the RVs especially since there is only one average sized fridge.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While the dorms are nice and well equipped, they can get a little crowded and have a lot of rules. Both of the freshman dorms at Regis are great, and since it is mandatory to live on campus during your freshman year, this is a bonus. DeSmet has brick walls and one central lounge, and O'Connell has two side lounges, a pingpong table, and more study rooms. There is a healthy rivalry between these two dorms. For upperclassmen, there are suite-style accommodations in West Hall and apartment living in Residence Village and Pomponio Apartments.

Although the freshman dorms have many rules (like quiet hours and no alcohol), they are quite comfortable. Living in the dorms is an essential part of college life, and you will meet countless people through dorm life, so it will benefit you in the long run. Also, compared to other college dorms, Regis has some of the nicest amenities. Living on campus when you are an upperclassman gives you the benefit of being able to walk to campus and classes instead of having to drive. Also, upperclassmen get the chance to live in nicer campus-owned housing, which means that they can cook their own meals and not have to eat the cafeteria food anymore.
