The on-campus housing rooms are nice, and they have a lot of recreation accommodations within the dormitories. The best thing about the dorms is that every room has one or two bathrooms that only have to be shared by a few people, so instead of competing with 30 or 40 students for a shower, you only have to work with eight or nine. Residents can even control their own heating and air conditioning.
The two main problems with on-campus housing are getting the room you requested and actually getting a room at all. Upperclassmen compete for housing using a point system that is based on GPA and judicial infractions as well as class standing. Those with low grades or many judicial infractions may not be able to live on campus. Also, many students who request a single will get a double, and those that request a double will most likely get a triple.
