Campus Housing: Living in the barracks sucks. Honestly, it really does. Physically the barracks are ok but outdated and aren't anything to write home about. The space is rough as an underclass but as you move up in rank you get less roommates and better rooms but it's not always a guarantee. You cannot have any visitors in the barracks for some reason and you are not entitled to do what you want in your own room. Privacy is questionable at times and during the week you are required to keep your door wide open so anyone can waltz right in to inspect its cleanliness.

Campus Housing: It's nice but it's tough. It's military.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When it comes to dorms, the majority of cadets believes that the barracks leave much to be desired. As a cadet, you have only the necessities. There are numerous rules and regulations that tell you what you can and cannot have, as well as how to arrange your room. The desired result is that everyone's room looks exactly the same. This can drive anyone nuts, but especially college-aged guys and girls. Oftentimes, it feels like you're back home with your parents. The barracks can be a very confining space.

There are certain perks to living in barracks. The majority of the rooms is either two- or three-man rooms, and unlike most colleges, cadets change roommates every semester, which keeps things interesting. The rooms also provide cadets with the technology they need. Rules and regulations ensure that cadets are focused on their academic and military duties, because for all they know, some of the cadets could be deployed to Iraq after their four years at the Academy. Therefore, comfort and nice dorm rooms are not at the forefront of concern for the administration. The convenience of having rooms conform to one standard is also hard to match. You may even find yourself thanking the rules of the Academy when your keys are right where they should be and you don't have to search through 10 piles of trash on top of your bed sheets.
