Doubles: 8

Find out what’s still available.

General description
Corridor-style, mostly singles with four doubles per floor. There are two 12-person clusters per floor that share the lounge, but each comes with its own bathroom and kitchen. Singles are tiny; they’re not terrible, but there’s little room to move around. Each room contains a bed, desk, chair, and built-in wardrobe with dressers, a shelf, and a fridge alcove.

Bathrooms
Shared hall-style with two showers, two toilets, and three sinks. There’s generally no problem getting a shower, and the bathrooms are cleaned regularly.

Kitchen
The kitchen has a sink, and electric oven and stove. There is also pantry space in the hallway by the kitchen. It’s small, but gets cleaned regularly.

Price

Single: $9,480 for the academic year/ $4,740 for one semester
Double: $8,240 for the academic year/$4,120 for one semester

Minimal Meal Plan: $300 per semester

Pros

  • Close to campus (just across Claremont from the gate at 119th)
  • Privacy
  • Two kitchens per floor
  • Nice, large lounge with TV on each floor
  • Career development and the babysitting and bartending offices are located on the second floor



Cons

  • Small rooms
  • Thin walls
  • Narrow hallways
  • Can be pretty isolating
  • Closed for winter break

Recommendations

  • The rooms on Claremont and 119th have the most light, but the ones facing the courtyard aren’t bad.
  • A mini fridge is necessary if you want to cook, as the kitchen doesn’t have one.
  • Avoid getting a double, some are smaller than they appear on the floorplan
