One of the places you're sure to spend a lot of time, especially during your first year here. It already is your dorm room, so it's considerable toe wonder about what the dorm looks like and the space that you're going to be living in for the first year of college. So I'm here in my dorm room, which is located in Nathaniel Rochester Hall, which is actually the building that is home to a lot of special interest houses. And I'm a part of what is called Photo House. So this storm room, however, is like any other double dorm room at our tea. So I'll quickly show you around just so you can get a feel of the place that you could be living. So right over here is my closet. There is a lot of closet space that they give you here, all right, T dorms. There's a lot of potential storage. You can see there's a few cubbies. I have my shoes on my laundry, food, notebooks and stuff down there. I have never had a problem with storage here. They give us a lot of opportunities to store stuff in, especially like a dresser. That we have here. I also have brought my TV, So I have this in my dorm room with me. I have a desk where I keep all of my supplies, my study supplies and I work a lot of the times. They're on things that I should be working on as well as Ben. Very comfortable, actually. Sometimes I miss the bed here at R T when I'm at home and my window with my air conditioning Vent says is also my roommates bed. So we're just kind of like across from each other. There are also more, more larger seeming rooms, which are square rooms that you're also double rooms on those air just formatted the other way. But the immorality, they're actually the same size, so as you can see, I mean, it's pretty spacious. There's like a full body length mirror on the door. You can use command hooks to put up anything that you need to put up. I've never really run into a problem with running out of space here. I feel, Oh, pretty comfortable, never really claustrophobic. Um, we have our recycling bin. Obviously, recycling is very important on DH. That's pretty much it as faras dorm. There is a bathroom just across the way down there, andan other bathroom that way, so there's also plentiful amount of bathrooms. I've never worried or stressed about not getting a shower or anything like that, because there are enough opportunities you have white boards is well, you can write stuff on stuff like that, so that's pretty much a look, a basic, already dorm, so hopefully we'll be living to continue talking about arms a little bit. I I want to mention let me say there's a lot to go into kind of just depends on where you're living, but pretty much all freshmen, unless your little cool, you have to live in the dorms for at least your first semester. I do know a few people who moved after the first semester, um, things to point out again. The lighting in the room isn't the bus. You will need another light source of some type. The low rise buildings do not have air conditioning. They do have heat. But to be honest, if you bring a fan, that's really enough for the time that you'LL use it most of the year. It's cold here. You're not going to need the fan. You're not gonna have to worry about that. But the high rises you have air conditioning along with heat again. I live in special interest housing, so the main difference that you will have in those because of special interest houses are located on door inside. Most of them are in Daniel Rochester Hall. A few of them are in Colby, C, D and E floors. The building that I lived in with my special interest houses, even International House Call B. C. So it's the first floor. Um Coby D is art house Could be Ian's Unity House. It's a fun environment to be in, and also there is definitely an advantage and having a nicer lounge. The lowers buildings don't have elevators. That's another thing to point out, all of dorm side is connected by tunnels again most of the year. It is very cold, so it's nice to be able to avoid walking outside. They do kind of exaggerating when they tell you that tunnels are available because they make it seem like the whole campus is connected through tunnels. That isn't really true pretty much everywhere on dorm side, you can get there through tunnels, which is great. So if you are an anti student, you can probably get to a lot of your classes through the tunnels. On academic side, the only places that I've seen that are really new tunnels because you can't there isn't a tunnel for you to walk from dorm side to academic side. Um, there's a tunnel connecting the student alumni union to the Eastman Building and There's a tunnel connecting the College of Liberal Arts Library. Those were really the only tunnels that I am aware of. They there aren't really a lot of options for that on academic side, but you can get their Muslim dorm site. But there's not much else I can point out about housing. I think just within my experience on ly bring what you really need. Don't do too much because also remember everything you bring, you're also going to have to store. So if you don't live close by and you have to get a storage unit, it's gonna cost you more money to story over the summer. Most of this you can find online. Currently, I am standing in front of my dorm building, which is Nathaniel Rochester Hall. Nathaniel Rochester Hall is home to most of special interest houses here. Authority So you can actually see their arson led signs at there's engineering house and you can see Computer science house and Photo house. That's where I live. So Ener H is a really cool, nifty location. It is pretty center in the middle of the dorm buildings. And you can see there is also more dorm buildings to the right of me. All around me. Pretty much other H is a great spot. I can take you inside and show you just a little bit of what it looks like on level one. So there is really good security, your energy. You have your swipe card, man. You pretty much Well, you can't really see it, but you'll see this will turn green. Perfect. And then So we are in the building now. You don't have access to the building or the elevators. Must you live in the building? That's really nice. You have to put up a nice little bulletin boards. The resident's life, our ace do with different things. Here is the energy each computer lab, which is a twenty four hour lab with printers that is accessible to any student minority. So I misspoke. You can get into the building, but if you if you don't live here, but you cannot go in there so you don't really have access to any of the actual dorms. You just have access to the computer lab and the post office, which is buddies on marriage so you can see their post herself. And come on. So there's elevators on pretty much every dorm home. So as Faras worrying about carrying stuff up for moving dead every night, that's no concern. The owner's generally work pretty well. They had big problems with them, so Bobby Full house in the kitchen kitchen on Lee has a microwave. So the only appliances you're allowed to have in your dorms are a fridge. There is not a stove. The on ly a stove is the international house. So you will have many my great meals. with any dorm that you live in. There's ways rules that you have to follow. So along the rules about the wall on everything they're certain appliances that you can and can't have certain type of lights that you can and can't have. Um, but even then, when you're moving in, especially if you were coming from somewhere, that's far away, don't be too concerned about getting things like fridges, those kind of large appliances that you want to buy for the year because a lot of the times when is that happening is that you only really use it for your freshman year. And then after that you get rid of it. All right. He has a thing called Goodbye Goodbye. At the end of every year, they collect all of the usable items that people throw out shower caddies, fridges, monitors. They throw a lot of good, usable things. They collect them off. It's an effort to be sustainable green and also provide this to their students and honestly is probably cheaper to just buy a fridge from Goodbye, goodbye, Then bring your own mini fridge. It would take up a lot less space. They have a base price. They do their big sale at the beginning of the year and they have a base price for everything. So it's really first come first, serve on the better items because the way that they was prices, it's like, Okay, all fridges are all small Verges, they're twenty dollars a large bridges of thirty dollars. Something of that sort and everything is really cheap. So I would recommend utilizing good. Got good bye good bye to get those items so you don't have to worry about traveling with them and bringing them here. Um, so that's just a piece of advice that could be useful to you.
