Rated 3.8 / 5 stars by 5 UConn students
"Location is unmatched, bathrooms were recently renovated and are pretty nice. I lived in a corner room and yeah the set-up is a little weird with both "closet" spaces next to each other on one side, but definitely manageable. McMahon dining hall is right across the street and South dining hall is close too. But let's be honest, you can just look at menus on the myuconn app and go to whatever dining hall you want so there aren't any issues."

"Northwest is probably one of the cleanest quads in freshman housing. I was in Rogers hall, and the bathrooms were the cleanest of any residence hall I visited. The rooms are a bit small--but they compensate with hutch desks. Lofting is not permitted because the ceilings are rather low. The buildings lacked decent study spaces with whiteboards, rather bare bones and all on the first floor. Also, Northwest has one of the better dining halls."

"Had a 2 Bedroom/2Person Apartment. The apartment was just the right amount of space for 2 people. Came with a living room, kitchen & bathrooms in each bedroom. There was a washer and dryer + a dishwasher. Also a refrigerator & stove + oven. Also has a thermostat to control climate. Only Con was the location from campus. Almost a 20-minute walk to get to the Union (10 Minutes by bus [Blue-Line]) Also had an Ant problem in the winter & needed ant traps. Other than that, it was a great place to live!"

"Incredible cozy dorm with a five minute walk to the rec center or student union. Includes a small kitchen for anyone in the building to use, inbuilding laundry, same floor trash disposal, and private bathrooms per each 6 person suite. Only real complaints are bad positioning of the heating/fan leading to poor airflow and the fact that the rooms get a little cramped unless someone is willing to loft their bed. Putnam is an incredible dining hall, so you can't go wrong with your food here. Overall a fantastic dorm made even better if you can fill the room with few friends. Protip: if the showers start getting weirdly cold, call a work order."

"Probably the best option available to freshman. I love the location and proximity to dining halls. The dorms are traditional doubles with a few singles and triples (no suites). Watson is the best, there’s the mailroom and kitchenette though the latter is nothing special and is not wheelchair accessible. Watson has a water fountain and 2 vending machines on the ground floor in the lounge. Having 2 elevators is handy to reduce wait times. The heating is strong as hell in the winter and there's no AC in the summer so bring an oscillating tower fan. "

"I am currently living in Holcomb and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a quiet and peaceful dorm. Freshman year I was constantly being woken up by shouting and people banging on doors and walls, but I’ve never once had that problem in Holcomb. The lack of an elevator is a little tiring, and the room gets extremely hot sometimes, but I love the building’s look and my room is incredibly spacious. The attic is also really cool, as is the common room. As for Holcomb’s location, Whitney was closed this semester but it’s absolutely my favorite dining hall and it is very convenient. The mailroom is a little far, and so are the other buildings, but it’s perfect if you have classes in the agriculture/nutrition buildings. The laundry room has never been completely full and the kitchen is accessible to everyone. Overall it’s a really amazing place and everyone in it is super sweet and kind."

"I absolutely loved my apartment styled dorms while living on campus. From the marble counter tops, full size kitchen and living room, to the high ceilings of the 6th floor penthouses. I wish that I could rent an apartment at UConn stamford, but now I go to Storrs and the dorms at Storrs cant even compare to the dorms in Stamford. If you are thinking about going to Stamford, or even sad that you're going to Stamford and not Storrs you will be happily surprised that the dorms are the best aspect of the campus as a whole. Plus everyone is close by, everyone is welcoming, people love cooking for their neighbors, and parties in the apartments top and basement frat party you'll get at Storrs. I have lived in each styled dorm they offer (single, double, triple, even a 5 person apartment) I promise you the dorms are spectacular. "

"I lived in Stowe Building at Hilltop Apartments. PROs- close to the “entrance”/“front” of the apartments, right next to community center/bus stop, parking is next to the building, a lot of parking spots CONs- choosing to walk to rec center (14 mins) / I’ve almost always opted for the bus (bus comes petty frequently < download Passio GO! to see bus route live) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️4/5 : the reason I gave this rating for location is just because of the 14 min walk if you choose to, but it’s really not bad. Quite a humbling experience the first 2 weeks of semester but you’ll get used to it."

"Lived in a four person suite in Snow (shared bathroom, two double rooms and a common area). Best dorm location on campus in my opinion. Decent dining hall, has AC and is pretty spacious. The closets have tons of room in them which helps the fact that they don't give you dressers there. Several study rooms on each floor which helps a lot if you find you prefer studying not in your room but are unable (or don't want) to go to the lib. Great place to live, I loved it there."

"Pros- huge double rooms compared to anywhere else on campus, hallways/lounges/bathrooms maintained very well and cleaned daily, right next to Putnam (dining/mail), you get to be part of a Learning Community, LC Innovation Zone located downstairs, lots of lounges/common areas, elevators, air conditioning, and the best part: very close to center of campus. Cons- not a very social dorm (depends on the year/LC, but I lived here two years and had a hard time making friends), has some weird smells, depends where you live but I always had really loud neighbors on all sides and upstairs so walls are way too thin. Probably the best place you can live at a freshman if you’re focused on academics"
