"Holcomb is a hidden gem on campus. All girls, mostly upperclassmen who want to be left alone. Building was built in the 20s, therefore no elevator, not great heating, and no AC. But pro of that is that all of the rooms are a different size. Even the smallest single is massive. Being next to Whitney dining hall was clutch, and it was surprisingly close to all of my classes in Fairfield way. One of the only other cons is that if you want to have a car, the parking is super small behind the building and if you don’t get a spot there, you have to go park up at towers and walk back down."

"Building security and restrictions are a bit excessive, signing in guests repeatedly gets annoying. Considering most other Uconn dorms lack a security guard and patrolling RAs. Rooms were super nice."

"Hilltop has high efficiency doubles (like a studio), 2br2ba, and 4br4ba. These are some of the hardest rooms to get because of how nice they are. Pro tip- 3rd floor has extra high ceilings which is great! You don’t have to have a meal plan, which can save lots of $$. It’s pretty close to the ice skating rink. Not too sure why they’re called hilltop apartments, bc they’re at the bottom of the hill, behind hilltop dorms and Weurth. Makes getting to class a struggle and a half. Another con - the pantry is really small, so I would bring an extra shelf for food storage if you can. There’s AC and laundry in each apt!! Mail is in a community center, which no one really uses except for mail. There’s a kitchen, game room, tv room, and study area there. These are some of the most coveted spaces to live, however, if I were a science student, charter oak apartments is a better place to live better bc it’s closer to the science side of campus, has a better bus line, and is arguably just as nice. Sadly, neither have elevators."

"South is good, nothing really to complain about. Shower head is kind of short but as long as you aren't a giant you'll be fine."

"The newest dorm at UConn; rooms have temperature controls. Probably the only dorm with a surplus of washers and dryers."
