Campus Housing: I like to live on campus at Truman. Dorms are clean and people who live there are friendly. If you live on campus, it is also easy to go to places around campus such as Convenience store, etc.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty good overall. The quality depends on where you live. It's often more expensive to live on campus than off campus.

Campus Housing: Campus Housing really depends on where you are at. I'll break down each hall and my experiences and stereotypes that come with each one.Missouri: A large, community style dorm with small rooms and a dining hall. Very middle of the road, with strict SAsRyle: Probably the nicest resident hall, features a beautiful main lounge and porches, a dining hall and a great game room. Rooms are fairly small though, many athletes live here.BNB: Not much to say other than this is where many sorority girls live.Dobson: Has a convenience store, the building is nicknamed "Dirty Dob". Kinda sh***y with community bathroomsCentennial: Known as C hall, the largest hall with the most amount of freshmen. This is where I have lived the last two years and the community is wonderful. It features a dining hall and a large main lounge with a game room. The SAs are very chill and almost everyone in C hall is welcoming and kind. Known as where the poor people go, but Truman is overall not the most wealthy community. West: Apartment style housing that has a convenience store, known as snobs. SAs are strict but the building is nice. It is very easy to isolate yourself here.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Truman just doesn't have enough housing. More than half of the undergraduate student body lives off campus, and that's a very lucky thing or there wouldn't be enough room. Fortunately, off-campus housing in Kirksville is often cheap, close, and plentiful. Still, for the significant number of Truman students with room-and-board scholarships, it's a choice between inexpensive and free. Truman has recently been overhauling many of the residence halls, so if you end up with a dorm room, it won't be so bad. Having to share a toilet with 20 other people might be unsettling, but the dorm atmosphere is great. Each floor has four student advisers who help make their fledglings feel at home, and they plan community and learning activities. The advisers are a hard-working, enthusiastic group, as is the cleaning staff in each dormitory—facilities are always bright and tidy each morning.

Each of the halls has something a little bit unique. Dobson houses one of the two on-campus radio stations, Grim cooks up an international flavor, and Centennial's pingpong matches can get fast and furious. All freshmen are required to live on campus, so it's something to moan and groan about together but one less thing to worry about before arriving here.
