I loved living in Parkside IRC my freshman year! The room was super clean and spacious and my roommate and I both got our own closets, dressers, and desks with a hutch so there was ample storage space. The ceilings are also really high which makes the space feel bigger, too. Housekeeping would come ...

I stayed in a single and it was amazing. The rooms are just as big as doubles and you get a huge private bathroom. The study lounges are lovely and the dining hall is right downstairs along with a gym. It was also super close to all my chemistry classes (which is important since they started at 9am!...

Loved IRC! My suitemates and roommate were super sweet. It was the perfect balance between socialization and privacy. I also really appreciated having a bathtub that was shared only with 3 other people rather than an entire floor. The rooms are definitely one of the most spacious on campus.

Great experience living in the suites at Parkside IRC! I was on the WISE (Women in Stem and Engineering) floor, which allowed me to connect with a bunch of great people and form connections with the in-residence faculty. Bathrooms are only shared with 3-4 people (so you can put all your stuff in the...

Parkside IRC was a great place to stay on campus as a freshman. It was a little expensive compared to other dorms, but it had great diversity and was definitely a must for international students. The RAs were really caring they planned a lot of community events. The dorms were mostly "en-suite" with...
