Lived here my freshman year. The walls are pretty thin, I could always hear what the people in the room next to me were doing. The common area is a nice place to hang out. The room itself has a good closet and lots of natural light, but it was very small and I just had a view of the wall of Marino C...
Literally the only bad thing about Speare is no ac and that the hallways are super echoey which makes doors slamming closed REALLY loud. But as long as you leave your windows open year round, bring fans, and guide your door shut you’re all set. The communal bathrooms are always clean and pretty mode...
Everyone seemed to dislike Speare but personally I loved it. The location is unbeatable for freshmen, ResMail is right downstairs, there’s a lot of lounge area’s and study rooms, the dining halls are 30 seconds across, close to classes. The room size was a standard freshman dorm. I thought the bathr...
I lived in a double my freshman year in the health science llc. The rooms are pretty small but understandable since it’s in the city. The bathrooms were cleaned pretty regularly, but the timing was inconsistent. My floor had a common room with a tv and couches and other floors have study areas which...
Pros: - Modern building with elevators - Resmail - Laundry room - Big windows - Cleaners for the bathroom come everyday - Close to the T - Close to Marino - Close to university facilities in general Cons: - Small room (typical for freshmen in any dorm to be fair) - If dumb people are yelling at 2am...
Speare is decent. Best part is the location. Right next to two of the dining halls, across the street from the green line, easy walk to most academic buildings. Bathrooms are ok, nothing special but not awful either. I stayed in a corner room, and they were still decently sized and comfortable, alth...
Speare is one of the best locations for a freshman dorm. You can pick up packages in the lobby, you're right next to the gym and a convenience store, and two of the university's 3 dining halls are a 30 second walk away. However, the location is probably the best thing about Speare. The hallways are ...
My room was on the west side and was on the first floor so my window directly faced Marino's brick wall and because of that my room never really got a lot of sun. I guess the good thing about Speare was that it's relatively close to central campus and ResMail is in the building.
I mean, hey, its a freshman dorm, so you won't get a very nice place no matter where you end up. That said, the renovations that were made to the building really hurt the community feel of the place and pool table and TV area of 2017/18 school year are sorely missed. The resmail location and proxim...
Typical freshman dorm, small room, thin walls, can get pretty hectic and loud at times, communal bathrooms, etc. Location is convenient though.
