Lived in a B room and it was a fine size with good lighting. The ambience and environment of shippee was a lot of fun and I made a lot of my long lasting friends here. The only major grievance I had was that a lot of dust would build up due to the material of the ceiling. It would peel and chip off ...
Shippee's atmosphere was the best part of my college experience!! Met all my friends here and had so many memories.

If you can get a C room they are significantly bigger and have a private bathroom, otherwise the normal rooms are pretty small and the laundry room does not have enough machines for the building. There are no study lounges, just a basement with a few tables
