Werth Tower UConn Reviews

4.7
10 reviews

We summarized all 10 reviews with AI for your convenience.

Werth Tower is a modern, well-equipped residential complex ideally located in the heart of campus. The dorm is largely favored for its spacious double rooms, with students noting them as some of the largest on campus. The rooms come equipped with adjustable air-conditioning, giving students total control over their personal comfort. However, some students have mentioned that these rooms, particularly those located on the lower floors, can sometimes be a bit noisy, so bringing a fan or white noise machine is recommended. The numerous and well-maintained amenities, including a large laundry room with a surplus of washers and dryers, contribute to the high comfort level. In addition to this, every floor features study areas and communal bathrooms alongside single-person bathrooms, which provide additional privacy. The dorm's location right next to the Putnam dining hall is a big win, although some may find the food choices better at Northwest and McMahon. It's worth noting that many detailed the uphill walk to the dorm as slightly tiring but also viewed it as a small price to pay for the benefits that come with living at Werth Tower. All in all, students seem to consider Werth Tower as the top choice for those intent on a focused academic life.

Welcome to Werth! I, personally, lived here in a traditional double two years - freshman and sophomore. Both years, I lived on the 2nd floor. Because of this, I could hear people walking in and out of the building. For this reason, despite the AC (which works really well, *and* you can actually adju...

The double is incredibly spacious, the amenities are well kept and checked daily, the air conditioning is a massive plus, and it's beside Putnam Refractory. The only downside is the uphill walk multiple times per day, but I would be willing to sacrifice some exhaustion for living here.

Rooms are a great size, the thermostat is also a great plus. Location is pretty good too, although since it's on a hill you either have to walk up a pretty long hill that can get tiring after walking up and down a few times a day, or a few flights of stairs on the other side.

Overall I love this dorm, the rooms are such high quality compared to almost every other dorm on campus. AC as well. I also never had a problem doing laundry here because there are so many washers and driers, which is not the case everywhere else I've lived. My only con was that you have to be in a ...

Pros: Really new building, houses learning communities so it's a great way to meet people. Primarily houses freshman and sophomores. Every floor has study rooms and in addition to the communal bathrooms has single person bathrooms, which are great to snatch for a shower. Cons: If you live on a high...

The newest dorm at UConn; rooms have temperature controls. Probably the only dorm with a surplus of washers and dryers.
