4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like that it's not hard to get a single as a freshman, and it's pretty much possible no matter what number you draw for the rest of the years (location might be less than great though). I love the entry system freshman year and wish there was something more like that for the rest of your years.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Freshman housing system is unparalleled. The entry system is, in a word, immaculate. It's easily my favorite part about Williams, and I know very few people who disagree with that. I don't know much about upperclassmen housing, but I know that almost all housing is desirable; there are very few bad options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very satisfied with my living arrangements.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are a variety of room setups, and the housing process is fairly simple. The rooms are nice, most offer smaller private common areas in addition to larger common spaces to be used by the whole dorm. Dorms are clean, custodial staff is very nice, and not many students share a bathroom. WiFi is sketchy at times, but not terrible. Additionally, as it's a small school you normally end up knowing you neighbors and having friends that live near you, even if it is unintentional. In my opinion, housing at Williams is better than the housing offered at most other schools.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: All in all, dorms at Williams are pretty solid. That said, I realize that I personally would prefer to live off-campus -- most people do not feel this way.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The overall comfort, hygiene, and accessibility of Williams dorms have always been excellent. There is a large variety of housing choices, and every building is different and unique.

The housing lottery may seem frustrating, but it’s fair with a guarantee of better housing as students get older. The rooms are generally good and always have beautiful views in the valley of mountains. The fact that most people graduate Williams without ever having a roommate speaks to how wonderful it is to live at Williams.
