Assorted we saw small and good sized dorms, singles and doubles, some of the lounges seemed alittle dated and under used, but those which led into small green courtyards seemed very pleasant. [View Full Report]

WOW! Like a palace! Some of the students even allowed us to look in their dorms without prior notice! [View Full Report]

As you left through the back doors of some of the dorms you could smell heavy smoke (a tad bit of marijuana as well). [View Full Report]

The dorm rooms are spacious with an unusually high number of single rooms. My daughter was able to get a single room as a freshman. Most stay on campus all four years. [View Full Report]

Such wonderful dorms, inside and out! Mudd was pretty average, but I visited Lyon, Harwood, Sontag, and Clark Hall, and they all will probably be the most beautiful places I'll ever live in. [View Full Report]

Saw the oldest Freshman dorm, still was very nice. They have a plan so that each dorm will be renovated every 10 years, about 6 years into it. [View Full Report]

We saw an unusual example of a room from a friend who lives at the language house. HUGE room but not sure it's representative. [View Full Report]

The freshman dorm was very gray, and I mean really gray, it was painted battleship gray. The rooms were very small and dingy compared to most dorms I have seen. [View Full Report]

Students allowed us to look into their rooms on the tour without early notice. That was helpful to us. Learned that students are assigned rooms depending on their Orientation trip. [View Full Report]

The dorm rooms are quite large, and something like 25% of freshman rooms, and 70% of all dorms on campus as singles. There are ample lounges, dorm courtyards/quads, study rooms, kitchens, etc. [View Full Report]

Hahah... they told us that the ones we saw were as bad as it gets, which was ... pretty tiny. A little claustrophobic. [View Full Report]

I like the courtyard in Mudd-Blaisdel (I think that is the name). [View Full Report]

"Dorms are like palaces" according to the Princeton Review, so I guess I had high expectations. Definitely did not live up to it. As gritty as any other dorms I've seen. [View Full Report]

I have a brother in his fourth year of college, so in addition to the colleges I have visited, I have seen many dorm rooms. Pomona has some of the nicest I have seen. [View Full Report]

Clean, and bathrooms are there where needed. There was a couch outside the room where I slept in, and I often would walk out to find somebody taking an afternoon nap on it. [View Full Report]

Seemed all right, not spectactular. Daily newspapers are provided in every dorm and students seemed to read them. A definite community feel. [View Full Report]
