The room is more spacious than other freshman dorms, you get 184 square feet. The rooms can get very humid and hot, I lived on the 6th north floor (it was all girls). My dorm often got spiders and some flying bugs, no ants though. The bathrooms can be clean or messy depending on which floor you are ...

I mean, it’s a nice dorm in terms of location because it’s so close to Storrs Center, but everything else is kind of mediocre. The kitchens were always messy because people never cleaned up, the room was deathly hot, and the walls were so thin that I could hear people talking next door. Also, becaus...

Compared to other dorms I’ve visited, the rooms in Buckley are pretty big and the bathrooms are pretty nice. My only complaint would be the location as it’s pretty far from all other freshmen dorms so it can be hard to meet people outside of Honors. The walk to center of campus isn’t that bad even t...

Buckley is underrated. The dining hall is attached (but is closed on weekends), laundry machines got upgraded, and the rooms are pretty spacious. A/C isn't really necessary except for the first few weeks of the fall semester. Location can be far from some classes, but being close to Storrs center is...

Buckley gets a lot of crap, but I truly believe it offers some one of the best Rate 1 options on campus. The rooms are designed well - not too small, symmetrical, and open to floor space in the closets. The bathrooms are great for communal bathrooms here. There's an open lounge on every floor, as we...

At first I wasn’t excited about living in buckley, but it really grew on me. It feels weird to say but I’m gonna miss the place. The dining hall isn’t great but is convenient. Elevators are the fastest on campus I swear. Living in honors was fine and it was cool to see people in my dorm in my classe...

Buckley is probably one of the best places to be if you are a freshman. The dorms and the building itself are great and the in-house dining hall isn't too bad nowadays. The community here is friendly and awesome to hang around with. Only real negative is the location. Sure being near downtown Storrs...

Great first dorm for a freshman. Might not be close to class buildings but makes up for it by being close to food. Super convenient for the weekend.

Buckley is an excellent freshman dorm with traditional doubles and communal bathrooms. The rooms are slightly bigger than other doubles on campus. I had no complaints living there. The location can be a far (15-20min) walk to buildings on the other end of campus but the convenience of being right ne...
