The rooms are tiny (similar to what we've seen elsewhere). Some old, some new; students get placed at random. [View Full Report]

Freshman dorms are never luxurious, but I was very impressed by the bustling activity and comfortable facilities on North Campus. I heard that upperclass housing is sketchier. [View Full Report]

Dorms were good. Each house had a computer lab, a hang-out area, the dorms were decently sized with basic furnitures. I wouldn't mind living here for even more than 4 years! [View Full Report]

The dorm rooms are pretty small. I stayed in a triple @ Dickson & there was barely any space. My host even said that was one of the largest triples! The commons have huge HDTVs with satellite. [View Full Report]

Didn't see inside of a room, but saw the hall itself and all the available amenities. Halls were almost hotel-like (the freshman hall I saw) and in suite-style. [View Full Report]

Freshman are housed on North Campus which is surrounded by a great student center(RPC) and dinning hall( Appel). Almost all the dorms are suite style except for Donlon. I was very happy with my stay. [View Full Report]

We saw one of the new dorms on the Freshman Experience tour and it was very very nice. However, there are still some older dorms on campus and I have heard they're not as nice. [View Full Report]

Dorms are beautiful from the outside, some better than others inside. [View Full Report]

did not get to see one... but they push all the freshman across the river.. so freshman year dorms are really far away from actual campus [View Full Report]

The dorms were nice. A few girls on my floor had to leave to go to a different dorm because of bed bugs (SCARY) yet I found my accomodations were fairly decent. [View Full Report]

they're dorms, but they seem pretty nice. Balch (all girls) has sinks in every room. [View Full Report]

Cornell has built many new dorms, greatly improving the situation there over the past few years. But they aren't organized or laid-out very well - they aren't very close together. [View Full Report]

The ones that we saw were great. They weren't enormous, but they had high ceilings so it made the whole room seem bigger. [View Full Report]

Depends on the dorm. I checked out Low rise and those weren't too great looking. However, the newer dorms like Court and Mews were in much better conditions. [View Full Report]
