On-campus living at Scripps is definitely not typical dorming. You will encounter hardly any dorming complaints, and improvements are constantly being made. Students are very respectful and appreciative of the dorms, and make a conscious effort to take care of their living space to keep it as nice as they found it. There are dorms that are preferred less than others, but there are no dorms deemed unlivable or hated by students. Each and every living space is made to accommodate to students' well being and provide a comfortable learning environment.
Most dorms have more space than any other college-living space, and comfort is a top priority. All dorm buildings are unique, with not any one like another. Each has its own personality as well as attitude and atmosphere. Beauty and elegance is not lost to efficiency and convenience, as each dorm's architecture has been inspired by historical art influence, giving somewhat of an old and classical feel, but with the modern comforts of Ethernet, heaters, and air-conditioning. From the antique structural design to the beautiful old furniture and scenic courtyards, Scripps dormitories truly do live up to their reputation of being palace-like dorms, following founder Ellen Browning Scripps's belief that beauty will help inspire beauty.
