Campus Housing: It is great living on campus. My dorms are well kept and the space is good. The cost is a bit much but overall the dorm is nice and well kept.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its highs and lows. I love the convenience of being close to my classes.The cost is good, but some of the dorms really need some work done. The building I'm in now, clements, has a lot of damage to the walls. I personally think before building huge facilities that the current buildings should be taken care of first.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only problem I really have with on campus housing, is that freshman are granted first priority. Therefore, there is no guaranteed spots for upperclassman. Trojan Village and New Residence are the best choices in regards to housing. New Residence features a full sized bed along with a smart flatscreen tv and your own in-dorm bathroom. Trojan Village is set up to fit apartment style living.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The atmosphere is clean and safe

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in a dorm my first year. It was fun but very little room and living with people in the same room who had different schedules was difficult at times. The dorms cost a lot for what you get and if you live in the dorms you have to buy a pretty expensive meal plan even though I didn't eat in SAGA much. I now live off campus and enjoy it much more. The good thing about dorm living was being able to just walk to class.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On-campus housing at Troy is what you make it. The general consensus is that the freshman dorms are a little older, while the upperclassman dorms and apartments are nice. But, overall, students say living on campus is a good value and offers a great social experience. Troy does a good job offering many different kinds of dorm options—coed, women-only, men-only, substance-free, honors housing, and international—and since the campus is small, no dorm is too far from anything.

Alumni Hall is an all-guy dorm—the largest men’s residence hall on campus—with double rooms and community bathrooms, which are cleaned daily. Gardner and Hamil also have the same setup with doubles and community bathrooms. There are also plenty of suite-style dorms, some of which are women-only and others that are coed. Upperclassmen also have the option of living in the on-campus apartments, Trojan Village. It is the most expensive on-campus housing, but it’s nice—each resident has their own bedroom with a movable desk and twin bed.
