A Typical Dorm Room At UChicago
Tour GuideRuth Landis
Dikla shows us around her room, which is in one of the three biggest dorms on campus! Every student is in a house, which is like a smaller residential community. Houses have study breaks, trips downtown, and lots of other traditions unique to each one!
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
It's a little bit messy right now, but what you gonna do? We eat USC's and plenty of closet space. You have a fridge that we run it from the university. Basically, we're in Max P right now, which is one of the residential dorms on campus. What's special about Max P is that we have our own bathrooms. Basically half the bathroom is a shower, and Asik, a little relieved myself, and the other bathroom is the toilet. So if somebody is using the toilet in the morning and you're a weight on them and vice versa, so it's really nice yet, and what else is there about housing? Within this residential complex way have something called houses, which are basically late assigned to you based on where you live within the dorm. So this floor and the floor is right above us are all part of Woodward House and Woodward house, basically, just like a unit of people we have to raise and two resident heads who are like to graduate students doing their pH d's here and have a child and they live in an apartment upstairs. We all kind of have fun events together, like they'll arrange study breaks for us and make looks more is their Mac and cheese. So we'll ride on the A all the way downtown or sometimes still, actually, like organize events for us on campus. Like there was, like an awkward prom or something like that. And it's all totally optional, so like you can be as involved or not involved as you want. It's always there, and you can also eat with your house in the dining halls because there are tables that are designated for each house. So it's just kind of a nice like support system Tau, huh? You know, especially like as first year when you first get here and its majority first years in the house because kids start to move off later.
