Freshmen aren't allowed to choose their dorms, like at most other colleges, but after that, you're free to choose whichever dorm you'd like! Dorms at Marlboro aren't fancy, but they're homey and spacious compared to the average college dorm.

The best options for housing on campus, arguably, are Hendricks and Out of the Way a.k.a. Hilton House. Hendricks is basically a two-story, house. Yes, a house! Not your average dorm experience. There's a true sense of community in this dorm and almost a family-like quality to it. Additionally, it's right by the dining hall which is convenient on those gelid, snowy days. I was lucky enough to be placed in this dorm my freshman year and it's been a wonderful experience. Just keep in mind that it is a chem-free dorm usually, so drugs and alcohol are not allowed inside. However, whatever you choose to do outside of your dorm is up to you. Hilton House, on the other hand, is a modern building and the most recent addition to campus housing. The common space is huge for both dorms.

I loved Marlboro until I was shown the lack of common sense and care the administration had for the students to the point where I felt like I was in danger. The final straw was this summer when they sent out a mass email informing us that they were cutting the safety officer position as well as cutting back on the health center's hours and staff which was already pitiful (yet the president was keeping his secretary). The closest hospital is in Brattleboro a half hour away and I have heard some horror stories about their treatment of students. The campus is not safe and I wouldn't be surprised to find out much of it wasn't up to code. This school is on its last legs, I give it 5 years before completely collapse. I grew up on the east coast, I've felt with mold my entire life. I'd never gotten a cold and worried that I was going to stop breathing from the terrible mixture of that and my mold allergies until I went to marlboro. This school is a sinking ship.
Marlboro is great because you have a lot of control on your experience. If there's not a class you want to take you can talk to a professor and make a personalized tutorial. Town meeting makes it possible for you to get involved and make institutional changes. We just voted to remove the Coca Cola soda machine because Coke has many human rights violations and environmental issues. All the professors are great at teaching and very decent human beings. The only issue with having so much control over your school experience is that you can easily waste your time if you don't hold yourself to a certain amount of accountability. The Outdoor Program has hikes and trips every week and makes it very easy to check out equipment for virtually no price. Overall it's very good if you are self driven.
