Living on campus has its' ups and downs. I have observed every type of on campus housing offered. One of the worst things about the dorms and apartments on campus is the noise. The walls are fairly thin and can easily be penetrated by noise from neighbors, people in the halls and outside, and people even just walking on the floor above you. The first floor in most every building has problems with roaches and other insects such as scorpions! I feel as if it is fairly expensive because the water, garbage, electricity, cable and internet are all included in the rent price. This is convenient, but a bit over priced. The housing is fairly private, even the shared room. All housing has personal bathrooms. I lived in the shared room because it was the cheapest, and the bathroom/sink area separated my side of the room from my roommates' and there was a walkway to get to each other's side. Every apartment has a full kitchen with microwave, oven, stove and fridge/freezer. Every dorm residence was provided with a mini-fridge and microwave inside the room. Also, every dorm room and apartment had its' own air-conditioning unit and each individual is provided with a desk, chair, bed and their own closet and dresser. There are community washers and dryers that residents can use any time, and that is also included in the cost of rent. Additionally, there are community kitchens in the dorm halls that have an oven, microwave, stove and fridge/freezer. To me, the best housing option would be the shared restroom residence suite. You get your own room and sink with a mirror and share a toilet and shower with a one person who has a room adjoined to yours by the restroom. Over-all, it is fairly convenient to live on campus because you can literally wake up 15 minutes before class and still have time to walk to your class.
