4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love my Residence Hall Choptank, and everyone in it. The Residence Director and Assistants are amazing and make me feel safe and welcome.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are pretty nice, most of them have been newly renovated and they're all very close to anywhere you need to go.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of Salisbury is not overwhelming, the education that you acquire is amazing. The university is constantly expanding in ways that benefit the students, facility and staff and still manages to maintain its beautiful and easy atmosphere. As a commuter, sometimes it is difficult to get the attention that the on-campus students receive, for example parking is sometimes disastrous because there is never enough for the student residency and commuters. All in all, the university does make an effort to include all students, faculty and staff in productions, opinions, expansions etc because they do understand that it will affect not just the university but them and the surrounding areas.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are wonderful and make freshman year a wonderful experience! You meet new people daily and have an abundance of friends. I absolutely love living here! My dorm has become home and I have made a family here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As an incoming freshman, I was randomly assigned to one of the nicest buildings on campus! Our dorm is somewhat small, with under a hundred students, but very clean and spacious. In addition the RAs the college picked for us do a wonderful job.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Salisbury provides housing to a large percentage of the freshman population, but not all. There are seven new-student halls, divided into four traditional and three high-rise halls. The traditional halls are further divided into two coed and two single-gender halls. These halls contain common bathrooms—one for the entire floor—study lounges, and a laundry room. The three high-rise buildings are all coed and are in cluster arrangements, meaning there are five double rooms surrounding one bathroom. These halls also have study lounges and laundry rooms. Of all the amenities, the laundry system is the greatest attraction, as it is quite easy to use. An automated system injects the right amount of detergent for the load, which removes the worry of measuring the correct amount by eye.

SU is beginning a renovation of its residence halls to expand and modernize them with even more technology. Nevertheless, many students tend to move off campus after their freshman year to University-owned housing surrounding campus. However, the upperclassman dorms—Chesapeake, St. Martin, and Dogwood Village—also provide an independent living experience. Dogwood Village provides single housing for students who wish to live alone; St. Martin provides housing for groups of four with two double rooms joined by a common bathroom; and Chesapeake is the most sought-after upperclassman dorm because it provides apartment-style living for eight people with a full kitchen and living room. Overall, no matter what hall you live in, Residence Life certainly makes every effort to ensure on-campus living is an enjoyable experience. This culminates with the Spring Olympics, a hall-to-hall competition in everything from board games to Capture the Flag. The prize? A year of bragging rights.
