Akers hall is a great place to live and meet new people as a freshman. It is easy to build a community and make friends with multiple roommates. It is on the edge of campus, but routes 30 and 31 take you everywhere you need to go and come fairly frequently. Akers has a dining hall inside which is al...

Pros: your own bathroom to take care of, living room space, big storage space in closet, two laundry rooms connected via long corridor, basement study lounge, good fitness room with variety of machines Cons: elevator issues, location not ideal for walking (but buses are pretty good), trash chute cl...

I was sick for over 2 months and we think it was an allergic reaction to mold. I found a slip dated the summer before I moved in stating that the asbestos had been removed. Yet when they turned the heat on, I had to start taking 2 allergy meds a day and still be suffering.

I loved the room setup and the bathroom was nice. The location was somewhat far but there is a bus stop right next to it with routes 30 and 31 so you can get all around campus and to Grand River very easily. The building was better than some dorms I’ve seen, but still not the nicest.

Akers is honestly underrated. People complain about the distance but at msu you need a bus to go everywhere anyway, and the 31 stops right at Akers. Having your own living room was excellent, especially when I wanted to watch shows or study when my roommate was sleeping, also made having guests ov...

I loved my experience living in akers! When I first found out I was assigned there, I was super upset about living in a quad. However, within a week I absolutely loved it. I made the best friends there and absolutely loved having our own living room and bathroom. East neighborhood is a little far fr...

I had the best freshman year living in akers! I loved having a living room because it kept guests out of my personal space. Honestly had somewhat of an apartment feel for being a college dorm. It was great having my own bathroom for sure. The dining hall could be better but couldn’t they all lol. It...

I love akers! I have had the best freshman year living there, I made so many friends on all the floors. It is a very active and social dorm and the set up it’s great. Having your own living room makes hanging out with friends easier without them all in your personal space. The food was alright as is...

This dorm building is incredibly outdated and in need of an entirely new layout. The rooms look like they have not been painted since the '60s, there is almost no personal space for each roommate, and the layout is completely ineffective. Quite frankly, I don't see any redeeming qualities about this...

You’ll get used to it but you’ll wish you live anywhere else. It is also extremely common to get stuck with a fifth roommate which is incredibly annoying since there is little space to move around as is. Being in the same building as the dining hall is helpful but it is arguably one of the worst on ...
