One of my favorite things about Wilkes is all of the housing options that are available. From typical dorms, to apartments to renovated nineteenth century mansions, the options are there. Granted, much of the freshman housing is average unless you get in the Honors Program. After that though, most people have no problem getting into University Towers which has pretty nice three-person apartments and a few quads. For those who want something different, all of the mansion-style housing is different. You could have a room to yourself or with three other people. All the layouts in the mansions are different compared to the cookie-cutter Towers' apartments. Its just preference. Although the best, if you're super lucky, or know someone already living there, is 40 West above the YMCA. Those apartments are the nicest on campus, but its nearly impossible to get in as they are very limited.
