Kilachand hall is a great dorm for first year students. It isn’t as good at Stuvi 1 or 2, but it’s much better than west or Warren. The rooms are well sized and clean. The only real downside is the location, as it is really far from west campus.
Being an honors student, I was lucky to live in KHC my first year. It's such a better option compared to what first year students usually get. However, the rooms are getting older and things like lights, blinds, faucets are starting to break. This is also a stark contrast to the bottom floor, which ...
Lived in a double here Junior year in 2015 - at the end of the hall far from elevators. Super quiet which I loved. Building itself is older but the lounge was super new and a great place to study downstairs - plus the upstairs study area is HUGEEE. Legit would spend a lot of hours up there late at n...
The Kilachand experience really changes based on your specific room. I was placed in what seemed to be a forced Triple, and it felt like living in a shoe box. However, the facilities in the building were amazing, with AC, in-house Laundry, and two beautiful lounges. It is also really close to a lot ...
I lived in a double as a freshman (2017-2018 school year). The double was part of a suite- so we were connected to a triple and we shared a bathroom. Honestly, you might get lucky and end up with a great room (some of the doubles my friends lived in were HUGE but ours was tiny). So my only complaint...
Kilachand is great for an underclassman dorm. Private baths (shared between a double, quad, or five person suite), AC, and proximity to bay state dining hall are all a plus. The only thing keeping this dorm from being excellent is its age; rooms, hallways, and upstairs study area are in need of upda...
I had a double with only one window. My roommate took that side of the room, meaning I had basically no light on my side. My plants died and it was hard to do makeup in the morning with no natural light. The double had significantly less space per person than the triple. We also only had one closet ...
Pretty lit. AC, private bathroom, quiet building with spacious common rooms. Downsides are that you either walk through your suitemates' room to get to the bathroom, or your suitemates walk through your room. Also depending on your room, you may have 3-4 windows or just one, making the room very dar...
Honestly great, pretty sure its bu’s only dorm (at least for freshmen) with AC? so thats really good. building is super old and the carpets in the rooms are pretty dusty, and the facilities in the bathrooms are pretty ancient as well. overall wouldnt have picked another dorm but it depends on your p...
Lived there freshman and sophomore year. The rooms range in quality. I've heard horror stories of walls that sweat and bathrooms that haven't been cleaned since the Kennedy administration and you can definitely tell it was built in 1920 but compared to some other places on campus it's not half bad. ...
