4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's good. They're building new dorms, too

1 person found this useful Report
4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the dorm system at Notre Dame. Our system essentially replaces Greek life because students tend to live in the same dorm for all four years and form a great community within them. We have interhall sports and other competitions, and we really love them. My dorm is nice. It is rather small, but it has recently been renovated, so it is pretty up to date. However, we do not have elevators, air conditioning, or handicap accessible entries. It is also one of the farthest dorms from most other buildings on campus, so it can take quite a while to get places. As much as I love my hall, I would say that we are somewhere in the middle of the pack when it comes to quality, though I would never switch dorms unless I had to. Another great thing about the dorms is that we each have a chapel and we can attend Mass in our dorms at least twice a week.

Campus Housing: If you are outgoing or a male, campus life is fun. Other than that, the forced community aspect is a tad annoying

Campus Housing: It makes it easy and great to get to classes and comes with a meal plan. It is also a great social environment to be a part of.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When I visited some other colleges, I was horrified by the size of the dorms; it would be like living in an Altoids tin- with another person! I did not have the ability to visit Notre Dame, so when move-in day came, I was rather nervous- what would it be like?

I was pleasantly surprised.

All of the dorms on campus are quality and have a lot of history- my dorm is probably looked upon as one of the lesser dorms, but it's one of the best in my opinion. There are three windows in my room, a sink, more storage than in my room back home (even splitting it two ways), an acceptable wifi connection, heating that we are able to control, and plenty of leg room. The only thing that my dorm doesn't have is some of the aesthetic value that some of the other dorms have.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ah, dorm life-finding food in strange places; living so close to your neighbor that you can actually hear them snore; dealing with the constant presence of a roommate's significant other; avoiding the rector at all costs; wearing a dorm shirt every time you're out of clean clothes. Students agree that no Notre Dame education would be complete without a stay in the dorms. Freshmen are not allowed to pick either their dorm or their roommates, but the majority feel that the University does a fairly good job in making the final decision. If a student is unhappy with the dorm in which they were placed, they have the freedom to be pulled into another dorm or to move off campus after they reach their sophomore year.

There are 27 dorms on campus, and all are single-sex and subject to parietals, which are the only hours when members of the opposite sex are allowed to visit. Of the 27 dorms, there's really no clear student preference. While the older dorms seem to be favored by some because of their traditions, the luxury and comfort of the newer dorms are preferred by others. Whether old or new, student pride runs rampant throughout the dorms.
