Double Room

Got dumped here as a transfer. Room is solidly spacious, got lucky and got a top floor view of the Charles + MIT. Toilets are tiny and decently rancid, kinda like some NYC slum. Far from campus which kinda bums and loud during Friday/Saturday nights due to frat parties outside but close to town, w...

I hate to see the Danielsen Hall slander!! The location is not ideal because it is far away from campus, but the commute is easy if you learn how to navigate the BU bus. I am currently living in a double, and I find it very charming with its large windows. The security is less intense than in Warren...

Danielsen is in a great area of Boston: close to Newbury St and Cambridge, but can be far from campus. The bus stops right outside, which helps. Room sizes are decent and the natural light is nice if you get a room with a bay window. The shared bathrooms are AWFUL. They are extremely outdated and th...

I lived in Danielsen for my Sophomore and Junior year. My sophomore year, I lived in a double on a low floor. The room I had was large, but there was practically zero natural light. The bathroom closest to my room was not too bad, but there definitely are some run down bathrooms elsewhere. My jun...

Some doubles or triples are really nice but the one I lived is terrible. It only has one window at one side so it’s really dark inside, one desk is next to the window, and one desk is at the back of the room where there are no light at all so you need a lamp. The shared bathroom need some renovatio...

Danielsen was really a mixed bag overall. I really enjoyed the large size of my double, and our private bathroom, but the building is terribly old. We have multiple issues with facilities which required them to perform renovations in our room. However, although it is far from campus, the location is...

I was in a double suite in Danielsen, the one where you had the bathroom in between two rooms. To be honest, I LOVE living in Danielsen. I was a junior transfer and have never been to Boston, so being able to live by Back Bay and by Newbury Street was so worth it. Imagine, people normally pay $4k an...

Danielsen was a great place to live as a sophomore barring the distance from campus. The closest T stop is Hynes and when the bus isn’t running, getting to campus is a hassle.

The dorm is really far from class and wouldn't recommend if you have class in West. We all know the BU Shuttle isn't consistent and if you happen to miss the shuttle you're used to taking well enjoy a 15 minute walk. Its all about which room you get in this building. It's a mix of private doubles an...

Pros: HUGE room, same price as other dorms, close to Newbury Street Cons: Honestly, just the location. It is the farthest dorm from central campus (although just a 15 minute walk).
