Lived in Ellsworth last year and honestly it was alright. I was living in a corner double and it was pretty good, I didn't have any complaints until my room was filled with ladybugs during the end of the spring semester.

Dorm is fairly good compared to other on-campus dorms. Top 3 dining hall next door, close to the center of campus but not too close. The biggest downside is the large hill on top it sits on, but the bus line has stops at both the top and bottom of the hill if you don't feel like walking
