Only freshmen dorm (to my knowledge) that has living rooms (btw they are furnished). Also each suite has its own bathroom. Compared to the other freshmen buildings--cannot complain. The basement has excellent study/lounge areas. Only problem is that it is the farthest dorm from campus. Walls are ver...

Living in forced triple sucked. The room was inclined and when you walked by the drawers opened by themselves, the only good thing was the personal bathroom.

Old building that isn’t special but is honestly one of the best freshman dorms because of the bathroom and large living areas in half the rooms. Floors are slanted on every floor above the ground floor and bathrooms are old. Oftentimes we lost hot water for extended amounts of time. All in all, it’s...

Kennedy is severely underrated here as a freshman dorm and can offer amazing social opportunities as a freshman. Very few other freshman housing offers a common room and a private bathroom: having these amenities are invaluable in providing a place to hang out as well as a sense of privacy. As many ...

Kennedy was a great place to live as a freshman and I would highly recommend if only for the basement alone. It was a great place to be able to study when it was way too cold to walk to the library. While small, the room had a large window and I greatly preferred it to other dorms like those for ori...

Definitely not the newest building but having private bathrooms was a major plus. Although I didn’t have one, the “living rooms” were a great place. Also the brand new basement was a nice place to study.

Pro: private bathroom for each room Con: I was in a forced triple within a 5 person suite. It was a forced triple and a forced double with a common room and bathroom. So it should’ve been 3 people living in there and it was actually 5... Tight living, crooked floors, but overall a traphouse. Also ...

I really that Kennedy has private bathrooms,compared to most of the other freshman halls. However, the rooms do get extremely hot in warm weather. Being in a triple in Kennedy, the beds are always lofted. This meant that we slept in even hotter air. I really recommend bringing a fan.

I'm pretty sure they stuffed three people into a double. There was barely enough room to exist and our floor was crooked so I had to velcro my drawers shut to stop them from opening randomly

I was in an economy double so my room as tiny so both beds had to be lofted in order to fit desks into the room. The radiator as loud and there were insulated pipes that prevented my bed from being push up against the wall so there was a weird gap. The common room (since suite style dorm) was small ...
