Alumni Residence Halls UConn Reviews

We summarized all 10 reviews with AI for your convenience.

Alumni Residence Halls emerges as a highly recommended space for freshmen, with students praising its central location, proximity to multiple dining halls, and the overall collegiate atmosphere. Described as traditional, the dorm houses mostly double rooms, with a few singles and triples, and is equipped with key amenities like two elevators, mailroom, kitchenette and study lounges. However, some students highlight the lack of wheelchair accessibility, lack of AC for summer and slow internet service as potential drawbacks. The size of rooms is generally appreciated, but some find the design flawed. Cleanliness is maintained throughout the halls. Laundry facilities are available, but can sometimes get overcrowded. Freshmen or underclassmen are the typical residents here, contributing to a respectful and friendly environment. Overall, Alumni Residence Halls receives high marks for its ample facilities, gathering points and convenient location near the center of campus.

Probably the best option available to freshman. I love the location and proximity to dining halls. The dorms are traditional doubles with a few singles and triples (no suites). Watson is the best, there’s the mailroom and kitchenette though the latter is nothing special and is not wheelchair accessi...

The rooms are pretty big and it’s really nice this semester since we can’t have roommates. Depending on the building you are in you won’t have a kitchen but they are open to you if you’re in alumni even if you’re not in the specific building. It’s also pretty close to a lot of things

I loved living in Belden both during my freshman and sophomore years. The building had great study lounges and was in the perfect spot on campus, as it was close to Storrs Center, two dining halls and the center of campus. I will definitely miss and would recommend living in this part of campus to a...

This review is for EDDY - I lived there from January 2020 - March 2020 and had a super nice experience. I kept my door and window open often so the room smelled clean and a lot of people came by and talked to me because people tend to be pretty friendly there. The laundry room is always a disaster. ...

My opinion might be colored from where I came from freshman year. if you lived in North, Alumni probably seems pretty good. but coming from Buckley, it seemed like a downgrade in almost every way. The room are not small, but they are designed poorly. The physical wooden closets push into the room ...

LOVE ALUMNI!! Belden is the best (BCLC!) and it is so close to everything you need on campus. The elevators are great especially on move-in day, and the location is amazing, especially compared to other standard Freshman locations. Maybe not the best location for STEM majors/classes, but other than ...

AMAZING LOCATION! Right near the center of campus and in between the two best dining halls. The gym and library are less than a 5-minute walk. There is a bus stop in front of Watson Hall. Also, Alumni isn't too far from Storrs Center which is nice when something from CVS or some food. As for the roo...

SUPER close to the center of campus - you’ll never have a far walk. Right between the two best dining halls on campus. The learning community atmosphere is very friendly and fun. And the rooms are bigger than most of the other dorms!

Very nice dorms compared to other areas of campus - close to McMahon and South, decent sized rooms, pretty quiet as most residents are upperclassmen. Really close to the gym and the center of campus, only place closer is McMahon or West (but only by a few hundred feet really). Ideal if you are an un...

Of course it’s not a massive perfect dorm - but for a regular type dorm building with doubles it’s always clean, quiet, and everything works
