I really liked the location, outside of it being very separate from the rest of the campus. it had nice views and the rooms were pretty nice. The bathrooms are disgusting. I'd rather have multi-stall than the mold-ridden ones there, and half the time the amenities didn't work. it's also pretty inacc...
Melvin I really wonderful in terms of community. It’s easy to get close to people. That being said, the walls are thin, and while the single bathrooms are nice for privacy, there’s mold in the showers and things don’t always feel as clean as they could be. The rooms facing the fens are large for dor...
Living in Melvin often felt like sharing a huge house with all of your friends. There’s a great community feeling that comes with living in a smaller dorm building like Melvin. Though old, the building is clean and well-maintained. Most rooms are large with lots of storage space. And the location is...
I am currently living in Melvin and loving it! I didn't get one of the rooms that face the fens, which are significantly bigger, so my room is pretty small, even compared to others. However, the small size of Melvin lends itself to a great community feeling. The bathrooms are great, single use with ...
My room was around the size of my friend's doubles in other dorm buildings, it really was a great room. My closet was huge as well and there was great natural light. There is no printer in the building, which wasn't the best, but Kerr hall right next store has one that you can use. The bathrooms wer...
Everything is cramped, and the common area was in the basement and smells of mold constantly. It is also far from campus and dining halls - one of the furthest so-called "campus housing" vs "university housing". And it's on the Fenway, which is not the most safe at night, especially if you use she/h...
The communal one person bathrooms rocked. Building kinda sucked and was on the outskirts of campus. Room was small but felt very homey.
Room was absolutely massive as I was lucky enough to get a 'bay window' room that faced the Fens. Single-occupancy bathrooms with a sink/toilet/shower were a big plus. The building is pretty old, everything creaks and the walls are thin, so noise can be an issue if you tend to sleep early. There's a...
It’s an old building, but generally pretty nice. I saw a few bugs, but never any mice or rats, and I eventually discovered that there was a hole in my window screen, so if you check for that you should be fine. The bathroom situation is really nice, as they’re all private bathrooms that are generall...
Absolutely gorgeous spot right on the Fens. Much larger rooms than the majority of other freshman housing options. My room had a really nice bay window that let in a lot of light. Can be a little creepy at night but didn’t experience any actual issues. Downside is that it’s rather far from academi...
