Triple Room

Building is old, elevators are always broken, stairs are creepy. Triple is too cramped. Bathroom shower gets clogged easily. Bed is too close to ceiling, I've hit my head so many times on the ceiling or on the metal bar under the bed while getting up or going to my desk. Lighting and view from wi...

Triple Room

My stay was nice overall. The room I was in was big enough to house three people. The building itself is very old and needs updates. My experience with security has been interesting because some are very chill but others make a lot of micro aggressions. The way people are saying they are all chill j...

HoJo is in a pretty good location, and the private bathrooms are fairly nice (compared to other freshman/sophomore housing). There’s a decent study/common space on the top floor which can be nice to use. The triple rooms are pretty standard, small but at least you get a bathroom. Rooms can also be h...

I thought Hojo was gonna be way nicer than the other freshman dorm options. Honestly, I would have rather lived in Warren. Here are my main points summarized: PROS: 1. It's extremely convenient in relation to classes and Marciano which many people (including myself) believe is the best dining hall....

This is definitely one of the best dorm style room options. If you’re a freshmen hoping to make friends it’s not exactly the best place since everyone is either upperclassmen or internationals but if comfort and chill vibes is what you’re going for this is the place. Having a security guard can some...

Single Room

I lived in a seventh floor single. It wasn’t huge, but definitely enough space for one person. I lived in a Hojo triple freshman year and there was no light but seventh floor facing the river was wonderful, you could MIT campus and there was plenty of natural light. AC/heating is an old unit, not li...

The two perks to living here are proximity to QST, SCI, KCB and having a private bath for each room. Otherwise this building is VERY old - carpets and curtains are old and smell old and my room had problems with spiders (so bad my roommate thought we had bedbugs). The rooms aren’t super well sound-i...

Hojo can be a great place to live especially if you want your own bathroom but don't want to pay extra for it like you would in a suite. The security guards at Hojo are the best on campus, it has a lot of hidden-gem community events, and its location is great for commuting to East campus classes, Ke...

Triple Room

Great location, especially for Baystate Underground, Starbucks, Fenway Restaurants, Target, and classes. Triple can be tight and not a ton of closet/storage space, but private bathrooms and 8th floor study lounge are huge bonuses. Security is pretty chill, especially compared to Freshmen coming from...
