Not bad, your experiences really depend on your floor. I got lucky and had a relatively social floor and everyone was chill and friendly. I also got lucky with a double that was in one of the lounges, so we had extra space. The bathrooms could definitely be cleaner and there are for sure some safety...

I lived in Beverly Clearly (BC) and it was really nice! I lived in a triple with the room being very spacious, good natural lighting, and 2 built-in closets and a wardrobe closet for each person. There were 4 bathrooms on the floor (with them being cleaned every day except for the weekends) and a tr...

The bunk beds for the triple rooms are dangerous since they are too close to the ceiling. There is no way to sit upright in the bed as you will hit your head just crawling into bed. I have contacted the fire department and they have said that they are a safety violation. However, maintenance and dir...

As a freshman living in unit 3 (Priestley) I would say the best thing about it is the location as it’s very convenient (close to campus , and Telegraph) and the people here are definitely more social and are friendly. I will say though that the building is old and could definitely use some revamping...

I think the location of unit 3 is the best part of this dorm, even though it may be the oldest. Because of it's proximity to campus, it is a great dorm if you want to be in the central hub of all the food, nightlife, and closeness to campus. The bathrooms are spacious enough even though they may be ...

I lived in the Ida Sproul building of Unit 3 and we got a corner room, so our room was a little more spacious. Ida Sproul wasn’t very new or extravagant and our elevator broke a lot, but it was clean, we got an amazing view, and the atmosphere was really welcoming and nice. Unit 3 is also only five ...

I wouldn’t recommend putting it as one of your housing options simply because it is the oldest of the units potentially the worst dorm beside foot hill. U3 is close to campus and other food options as well as Cafe 3 Dining Hall which is in the vicinity. It costs the same to live in a unit 3 double, ...

Double Room

Unit 3 has a reputation for being the crustiest dorm, which is great because then no one requests it and you are more likely to get the room type you want (especially if you want a double, which can be hard to come by)! Unit 3 is one of the closest dorms to campus and has a dining hall in the unit! ...

I was lucky enough to to get a double so space wasn’t an issue. For us, we had to take our laundry all the way to the basement of cafe 3 which wasn’t that fun and the bathrooms were pretty clean most of the time but you can only ask for so much when sharing with so many people. Overall, I had a grea...
