3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is a pretty good experience, all the utilities I would use are available to my access, however I know at other Universities kitchen accessibility is free, whereas in EC it is required to pay to utilize.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is set up in cubes, so rooms are all close together, and you make friends very easily.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I currently live in the international dorm which is different because I am not an international student. This makes it interesting for sure but the rooms are decently sized and I appreciate the atmosphere overall it is a clean place aswell.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living in the dorms for the most part. I live in Towers, the few things I don't enjoy are the showers and how they never actually seem like they are cleaned, which isn't very pleasant. Other than that I truly thing the dorms are nice to live in for the first year or two of college and allows you to meet more people. I also like the amount of study areas there are in the dorms.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is definitely an experience, it has both it's perks and it's downfalls. However, this year i've met a lot of really great people solely because of campus housing. I live in one of the friendliest, homiest dorms there is and I absolutely love it. Walking in and out of the building someone is always there to say, "Have a great day!" Everyone says hello in the hallways and it's as if we're all one big family!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The residential housing is very unique here at Eau Claire. Each dorm has its own personality. For example, Governors Hall is said to house people with great personalities, and Towers is supposedly a party hall. The dorms are very small, and some are cleaner than others. Some rooms may have mold, so be sure to tell your resident assistant if you smell anything that would resemble that. Otherwise they are well taken care of, and past students who have lived in the rooms are required to clean everything before they leave for the summer.

The dorms are convenient and very close to classes. A typical walk from a residence hall to Lower Campus is about 10 minutes. The halls provide a very social environment if you take the initiative. Knock on your neighbors doors; introduce yourself to maximize your exposure to other people and possible friends. RAs will often organize events for each wing, or you may even have whole-hall events where you can meet people from other floors and wings in your building. Take advantage of this because these events will slow down as the year goes on. Enjoy your time here at the dorms because it is a very valuable experience.
