I lived here from July 2019 to March 2020 my freshman year; the year that the pandemic hit and we had to all evacuate Purdue indefinitely. Personally, I had a really good experience living at this residence hall before covid-19 came up. From the comfy-sized rooms, large walk-in closets to the well-w...
I had a triple w/ a private bathroom which was really convenient. Room was the originally-TA room but converted to a triple which I was happy to take. Not much to complain about except for location which was only a 15 minute walk away so not 'I have to take a bus there' bad but certainly not great.
Out of the dorms at Purdue, Harrison wasn't that bad. I eventually gave up walking to class, and just decided to take the bus - Gold loop and Silver loop were my best friend. While I had a bike at the beginning, I could only use it on nice days, so it was kind of useless. The common areas were only ...
Harrison was alright, but I don't think it holds up to many of the other dorms I stayed at. The common areas were kinda lame at least when I was there. It is also on the far side of campus, and it can take anywhere from 10 - 30 minutes to get to class, which becomes really noticeable once it starts ...

I loved Harrison! Yes it is a bit far, but the sloop bus stop is right across the street. The rooms are a perfect size, you practically have a walk-in closet, and the bathrooms are brand new. The toilet is in the same ‘stall’ as the shower which makes changing really easy.
Overall not that bad. Location is far from classes but it makes the dorm area much more peaceful. Bathrooms are clean. Room is a little small for a double and windows are kinda ratchet. Lighting in rooms is also subpar.
