So you know, she has a typical freshman. Dormer will look like this is a naive on center. So you will have you either being a double or triple. Unless you decide to request a single s O, you will share a bathroom. Usually you'll share it with to other people. So your seatmate. So to your roommate and then to other people, we have your shower and a mere hello. So usually this is a corner room, So they actually this is just one big room. There's no sweet. There's no other room that they share it with. This from like here over usually will be cut off. Unless you're handicapped student and you need to be in a corner room. You knew the success ability. So this option for you lock in. There are three beds. So this is what a trip it looks like they're really roomy. This is definitely one of the factors that help me decide where I was going to school. I loved the space of the rooms and everything. So everything you see in that, like the dark wood is included when you move in so everyone gets a desk, get little drawers you get a bed frame in a mattress and then? And then you either get wardrobes or a closet. Just depends on Ben here. So if you pay like a salamoni for each semester for the whole year, maintenance will come in. Andre will put in the rented fridge and microwave. It's really convenient, especially living cross country. I don't want to look a fridge all the way across. You know, the country sells really convenient. This one actually is a pretty nice of You get two similar campus that's Plant hall over there with, like, the little minarets that you see Looks like a castle. That's the Sykes building. I will show you guys. You get to see some of the city, which is So some dorm essentials, I would definitely say our extension court, since there are not many outlets a filter picture that you can keep in the fridge because unless you wanna be drinking warm water out of the sink, you don't really have much room to store water bottles. There is a water fountain in the hall, but this is so much easier in the middle of the night. If you're thirsty to just grab the picture out of French, I have a printer, and if you plan on printing a lot of things, I would recommend it as someone who's in a few different music groups. I'm always printing sheet music, so it's been kind of a necessity to have one. You get a thirty dollars printing allowance per semester, and each page is ten cents for black and white, and for me it just wasn't enough. And the computer labs heir only open certain hours. There are a bunch on campus, but I ran into a few situations where it wasn't open when they needed to be open. And I'm always printing things last second. So it was just easier to have a printer in my room if you plan on eating in your dorm a lot, I would recommend getting riel forks and spoons that you can reuse. Um, I started out with just a pack of spoons, forks and knives, and I ran out really quickly until my parents sent me. Let's set of silverware better for the environment, for sure, and more convenient because you don't have to keep buying them if you plan on raising your bed. I would say that either a stool or a little Ottoman are definitely an essential, um my bed isn't that high up, and I still have trouble getting into it. I could use my chair, but that would be a hassle. So instead I have a little ottoman. It's also hollow, so I can put things in there. So I put, like, books and stuff, so it's really convenient. Oh, also super long charging cables for your phone If you want to use your phone while you're in bed and it's dead. If your cables and super long and you've a faraway outlet, it's not gonna work. So my cables like ten feet long and its purpose. Yep. So that's all the essentials I can think of. So I wanted to talk to you a little bit more about how housing will change thie older you get. So we have a lot of incoming freshmen that come into the school, especially in recent years. We've had a huge influx of freshmen and essentially what that means is so essentially what that means is we only have so many dorms here on campus, and there really isn't enough for juniors and seniors. So how it works is the spring of every year. If you're continuing student, you form a group of like you're friends of where you are, who you want to live with. And then based on its based off of the least amount of semesters, you have been at the school and you get to then choose a place to live first, however, obviously, freshman, you have to stay in the freshman dorms so you probably can stay on campus, appeared Junior, and you don't really want to go with your friends like you're just live with the random. That is probably an option for you. However, just because there are so many freshmen, it's I would not say. It's a freshman on Ly campus that is definitely not what I'm saying. But just because there are some money, they have to be house somewhere like Brevard. It is technically an upperclassman dorm, but a lot of freshmen lived there. Like all my friends, they lived in Brevard than I was surprised to find out that it wasn't upperclassmen. Dorms s O Basically, what that means for you is as a sophomore Paul Apartments and Stress Hall that is, the other upperclassmen. Dorms, I would say those are all like sophomores. Jenkins. That is another upperclassman door. However, there were a lot of freshmen over the last year, not to mention there's also our cell. It's like a studio style apartment, so it's just like a single than he ever kitchen, living room stuff like that. It's very small, but that is also another upperclassman option for you. So I would say a lot of the upperclassmen dorms are sophomores and then some. Freshman Tio, when it comes to like when you become a junior, will become a senior. Chances are you will be living off campus if you want to live with your friends. Ah, lot of people. They'll just get a house with their friends and apartment close to the campus. We do not partner with any apartment complexes in Tampa, but there is an off campus fair that goes on. So like table ing in the Von Quad, you can meet with someone and they can help you search. So I am living with my uncle next year. My uncle. He lives like ten minutes from here, so I am living with him next year because I am studying abroad. So I decided that was the most convenient option for me. And then my other friends. They're all living together next year in an apartment somewhere. So I would say as an upperclassman, you probably will not be living on campus if you do wanna live with your friends, but I don't look at that is a negative. I know a lot of people on this campus do, but I don't. I think it's good to be living off on your own. I think it's important, Tio. I think it's a good push. I think it's just it kind of forces you to be a little bit more responsible and kind of show you like what life is really like once you are dependent once you are your own adult. So I don't see that as a negative. I see it is a very good thing. I think it helps people grow s so that by the time you are a graduating senior, you already know what it's like to have to pay bills and utility and electricity and everything like that. So, yeah, that is kind of how housing changes from freshman to senior year here at UT. So I kind of want talk to you guys about some other freshman dorms we have on campus. So this is what a typical look like. Like I said, it will be a double or a triple. Another freshman dorm we have is more sahni and we're Sahni is set up a little bit differently. You have. So you walk in and you have your common areas like the living room with a couch, share everything, and then you have your bathroom and then you have two doubles, so you're sharing. It's kind of like an apartment style minus the kitchen. So my friend Linda, more sunny. Last year's really nice. The dorms are about the size of this little bit smaller because it was a double. But that is more Sunny von Amar. Sanni. It's They're probably the most convenient for freshman students just because that is where dining halls are also housed. It's on the first floor. Also involved. Important thing is, we have our library textbooks bookstore where you can get your textbooks and everything. Everything with the UT logo on it. You confined in the book, sir, as well. We also have a computer lab. We have computer labs all over campus, but there's one in Bonn. Another freshman dorm is Austin. So Austin, that's like your typical dorm like bond. Except it's two triples with the bathroom connected in the middle. You won't ever live with the opposite sex unless it's something that you decide to put on your application. Eso you'll always be housed with female of your female guy. Your guy, however, we do have co add floors, so like you. Oh, sure, bathroom with the same sex. But the person living next door to you on the other side of the wall could be, you know, the opposite sex. Another freshman dorm is McKay. McKay has my heart. That's where I live my freshman year. Um Oh, it's so beautiful. I absolutely loved. It was besides Paul Apartments, which is an upperclassman dorm. It is like the most recently renovated freshman dorm. For bedrooms, it's double double with a bathroom in the middle, you get a view of the river. It's absolutely beautiful, is my most favorite thing. It's like a beautiful view of the river. There are only two floors, so it is a small dorm room. You'll see people hand walking all the time. We have a whole bunch of palm trees, which is really nice on. Then the other one is smiling, which is like McKay small. You got your two doubles and the bathroom in the middle, and those are the freshmen So rooming at University of Tampa. There are seven residents halls, four freshmen on campus and then a few additional for upperclassmen. Most of them are a lot larger than Smiley, so smiley is only two floors. But for example, the residents holes in Fawn Center, there's six floors. What's nice about rooming here is there are many different communities that you could be a part of. There's a whole dorm dedicated to honor students called McKay, and that's right out by the water. So there are no communal bathrooms here at UT and any of the residence halls, which I think is great. Living on campus makes it really easy to get to classes, too, because parking here sucks pretty bad you can on Lee Park in very certain spots. I think during the week, students can only part in a certain parking garage, which is on the very outskirts of campus and not a convenient spot. It also, if you are driving a campus, gonna make sure you save a lot of time to park and then walk all the way back to campus. So I like living on campus and not having a car, because I never have to worry about working before you get to class. So really rooming here is pretty nice. After a freshman year, you can move into Palm apartments, which are actually really nice. They recently read redid that as well, uh, and they're more apartment style instead of like, normal dorm style. And it's right near campus. That's a pretty highly sought after hall toe livin. Um, and that's where I'm hoping or end of next year. Something that's important to know about UT and they're rooming is that as you move through the different years, it gets harder and harder to get rooming. So as a freshman, I'm pretty sure housing is guaranteed. But after that, it's not. And most kids have a hard time getting rooming here. So that is good to keep in mind. A lot of kids move off campus by sophomore junior year. It's very rare to have, like, say, a senior living on campus unless they're ari. But the good thing is, we do live in Tampa. There are new apartment buildings being opened and bill every day, so there is plenty of options off campus. University of Tampa even runs a Facebook page dedicated to people finding off campus housing, something else to know, which is very important. If there's an overflow of freshmen or other students who need housing, um, they will put you in the very more hotel, which is off campus. You basically live in the hotel until there is housing available on campus or if there never is. You live in the hotel all semester all year. Um, it's set up like a hotel that you'd stay in actual hotel rooms. Now that it's bad to live there, it's just inconvenient because then when a room does open up, you have to move all your stuff. And also you have to take a shuttle to and from the hotel to get on campus. So it's not the most convenient thing. But overall, I think rooming on campus is not that at all. I enjoy it. I really like Smiley.
