White Hall Northeastern Reviews

3.3
14 reviews

We summarized all 14 reviews with AI for your convenience.

White Hall offers a mix of experiences as a college dorm, with students mentioning its prime location at the heart of campus, close proximity to dining options like Qdoba and Wollaston's, and easy access to classes and recreational areas. The unique room layouts, some with oddly shaped spaces, have both delighted and frustrated residents. While some rooms provide ample space, others, especially the forced triples, have been described as cramped and challenging to navigate. The lack of air conditioning, outdated facilities, and occasional pest issues like rats were recurring drawbacks. Despite these challenges, students appreciated the communal kitchen, laundry facilities on every floor, and the strong sense of community fostered within the building. Additionally, the dorm's colorful walls and varied common areas added character to the living experience. Overall, White Hall emerges as a location-driven residence with a blend of positives and negatives that create a distinctive dorm atmosphere for students living on campus.

I had a corner room on the fifth floor so I really cant complain about space. If you luck out with those it really is sweet. Two roommates suck but hey I met a best friend that way. Bathrooms are absolutely horrendous, straight out of the 60s combined with body hair everywhere. Can't beat the locati...

A White Hall forced triple is actually physical and psychological hell. There is physically not enough space for three people to live in those rooms. It consists of a bunk bed, a lofted bed, two small open closets, three bureaus, and three desks. Mine had one window. If you're on the top bunk, you c...

Never got to use the kitchen because of Covid; rooms are large and cozy, but the window might be too small for some people. Location is one of the best, and it's nice to have the laundry room on the same floor. Only con I had for this building is the bathroom, which is good enough but is less "polis...

Pros: One of the best located freshman dorms on campus (most classes are 5 to 10 minutes away). Dining halls are a less-than-5 minute walk (except for IV). Has a Qdoba on the first floor, and multiple common spaces. Has multiple elevators. Cons: Rooms can get very hot in the summer and very cold in...

Great location, especially as a freshman! The building had ~character~ with some slightly slanted staircases and funky wall colors, and oddly shaped rooms. Every room has at leas one red wall which was weird at first but it grows on you. Closets are spacious and if you loft your bed all the way you ...

Absolutely LOVED living in White Hall during my freshman year. Pros: Best location for a freshman dorm, right across the street from Wollaston's and Marino, close to all classes, etc. Oddly shaped rooms in the building mean some rooms are nice and big! Only freshman dorm with a communal kitchen. H...

Got really unlucky and got placed in a quad. It was the same size as some doubles in the building, had mice, and would be burning hot even in the winter. Overall though, I loved white hall. It was in a great location and the colorful walls made it a very happy place to live.

This dorm is in a great spot, and is fortunate enough to be one of the only freshman dorms with a kitchen. That's literally where the pros end though. The Rooms are strangely shaped, in odd positions, and always feature a bright red wall. The showers are always gross, regardless of how many times I ...

Constantly smells like the Qdoba below it. No air conditioning which sucks in the hotter months. Overall a decent dorm as a freshman, but has some downsides.
