The housing, at least for the girls, is pretty spacious. The dorms are not as cramped as typical dorm rooms. They provide the basics for furniture and some of the furniture is pretty in tact on arrival. The central dorms are very ideal for freshman and sophomores because the buildings create a very social atmosphere which makes the first couple of years of college easier to find friend groups. The cost is on the expensive side but they do provide free laundry which is extremely convenient!

Being a freshman here at Roberts, my dorm building is not the best dorm building to live in on campus. My floor mates and I go through problems here and there such as a broken washing machine or a broken toilet. It's not luxury living, but it is definitely better than other college dorms that I have seen elsewhere. Sometimes I think that I pay too much for my housing since appliances break and sometimes the heat isn't right (plus it takes what seems like forever for these things to be fixed), but I have to live here so it is something i have to deal with. The social life in my dorm building is great! I have a great RA and RD that holds events for my floor and my building overall. it is a great way to get to know people especially since i have to live with them. All and all it is not perfect, but it is pretty alright.

The facilities are very nice and have been recently remodeled. The dorms are now carpeted which is very nice and a clock tower has been added. The VAC is a great place to work out, although it could have a larger work out room. The library is amazing and one of my favorite places on campus because of the environment. It is easy to study and research at the library; AND there are the great moving bookshelves! My favorite building by far is Cox hall because it is so homey and cozy and a great place to practice music and even study. My friends and I liked going to Cox to play music and sing together. The building also has great character.
