Pros: very nice location - located near two bus stops so very convenient. also located next to louie's food truck (perfect for grabbing a midnight snack) BIG rooms! very spacious! (the first floor rooms are MUCH smaller than the upper floors) sink rooms (there are no sink rooms on the ground floor...
There were ants on my 6th room floor... how did they get up there? Really spacious rooms, possibly the largest singles you have on north campus. Location is really convenient to get to central campus/the bus. The elevator is jank as hell though and so is the building overall. It's an old building so...
Riding the elevator is by far the most exciting activity on campus. Put that together with the desk chairs that easily and suddenly tip backwards and the friendly spider companions in the bathroom, and you have the recipe for a perfect dorm!
The rooms are huge unless you're in a forced double/triple. The forced rooms are still spacious enough. Quiet dorm, lots of singles. Building is so old that they can't replace the missing window screens because the company that made them doesn't exist anymore. Unfortunately, this means large, chitin...
Overall I liked my room and it was the closest dorm to classes. However, it was very antisocial and I only made a few friends on my floor. There are 4 general common rooms rather than 1 for each floor which made it hard to meet the people living near me. If you are looking to make friends with the p...
I lived in North Balch in a double on the ground floor. Rooms are generally bigger than the other dorms, but it can vary. Ground floor doubles are pretty big but some singles are bigger. There are definitely some unlucky closet-sized rooms scattered throughout the building. Many rooms had a personal...
Personally, I loved Balch. It is a unique and historic building with beautiful lounges. I got lucky with my room as it was big and had a great view of the courtyard. Cons are that the walls are thin if you have noisy neighbors and there are occasionally spiders or stinkbugs.
Some pros: great location with 2 bus stops in close proximity so it's easy to get to classes and back home from ctown late at night w/o worrying about walking a lot in the dark. relatively quiet. cute lounges but they're pretty old and smell kinda weird. huge plus is that tatkon center and carol's c...
Pros: - great location! not too bad of a walk to class or to nasties. also there's a bus stop literally right outside of balch and buses come around every 15 minutes - everyone was pretty nice in my unit - weekly snacks from the RAs - the rooms are huge (if you're not in a forced triple like i was...
I lived in a single freshman year and my room was not only super spacious but also came with a private sink. Most of my friends would hang out at my dorm because of the size. Balch is also very quiet and makes for a great place to study. Some units are older than others though and the elevator tak...
