North is not as bad as everyone makes it seem. The building itself is really old, but facilities and staff did a fantastic job of keeping it clean, at least in my building. The only concerns that I ever had with North is that during cold months like January and February, the heaters make a really in...

Lived on the fourth floor, and had to walk up four flights of stairs to enter the smallest prison like room ever. The heater would make a horrible noise that would keep me up at nights sometimes during the colder seasons. Sometimes the room would become too hot from the heater during the winter. Fir...

North was for the most part okay, the biggest thing for me was the showers, which in my building had 1 drain and 2 curtains so the nasty water would flow down to you if there was another person showering at the same time. The rooms and study lounges were decent, same with food. I thought location wa...

Definitely one of the worst dorms at UConn. Laundry is in a different building which extremely inconvenient and the WiFi is horrible (although this is supposedly improving soon). The dining hall is subpar but luckily the Northwest dining hall (one of the best dining halls on campus) is very close. T...

North Campus is a pretty old building, so it's not the most accessible. It only has staircases in the residential blocks, so if you're in a wheelchair it'll be hard to get around. I was pretty unlucky with my room, had to call maintenance to fix my heater three times (some parts were old and it was ...

Couldn't really have asked for a better place to live to be honest - first real dorming experience, and while the bathrooms were gnarly and the rooms were passable, it was very close to my classes. Oh, AC would've helped.

Big tip: if you have to live in North, choose Mcconaughy or one of the buildings directly adjacent to it. Mcconaughy is the dorm directly above the dining hall and laundry room so you have easy access to both without needing to walk outside, which solves some of the main issues with living in North.

Provided the classic freshman dorm experience, very low level dorm room with lower level comfort, an older building, directly next to a graveyard, but provides optimal location close to most freshman classes and the center of campus, lacking AC

Better than Towers location and demographic wise. North rooms are honesty trash but it’s the best place to meet people and have friends over. You can walk to most freshman classes from here, versus towers which is a long walk or long bus ride which sucks in the winter. North closer to restaurants an...
