4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus is smaller, so its easy to get to all classes, however I love living on campus, as it offers more of the college feel, with roommates and activities happening on campus. My dorm does outdoor themed activities, to get people to learn about each other.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Cleanliness could be better, as well as the furniture, but overall spaciousness and structure is fair.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in an on-campus dorm during my freshman year. It was actually very spacious and there was more than enough room for my roommate and I. I was surprised that we got so much space! We were lucky and our floor that we were on had just updated their bathrooms so all of our stuff was nice and clean. The hall was cleaned regularly so it stayed clean throughout the entire year. For my second year, I lived in a sorority house. The rooms in the Greek houses are much smaller than what you will get in a dorm usually. The house was also cleaned on a regular basis so it stayed generally clean throughout the year. I do think that the university could pay a little more money to update some of the rooms, dorms and houses.

Campus Housing: Nice dorm rooms. Social scene is lacking

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All the dorms are very conveniently located relative to the rest of the campus. The rooms are reasonably spacious. Some of the buildings are far newer and nicer than others. Within the buildings, kitchens are easily accessible. Depending on the building you are in, the community environment differs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are a few different types of campus housing options. First and most prominent are the dorms, which most students experience their freshman year and possibly beyond. There are nine buildings, each with its own unique identity. For example, Todd/Phibbs is often notorious for the party scene, while Schiff is an outdoors-oriented residence hall. Rooms are furnished with a bed, bookshelves, a desk and chair, and a wardrobe. Other amenities include washing machines, vending machines, a lounge, a kitchen, and study areas. Make sure to tour the buildings because some are newer than others and may have larger rooms.

There are also Greek houses and theme houses. The Greek houses are obviously for the Greek community and often members will live there sophomore and/or junior year. Theme houses range from language houses to the track house and emphasize the link between living and learning. Residents are required to put on four events per semester that have some relation to the theme. The benefit of living in student housing is that students don't have to pay utility fees or pay extra rent for the summer months.
