The fact that your top choice is Warren seems to me that you are looking for a dorm that is either convenient to your classes and/or that is predominantly freshmen so that you can meet people. If you want a predominantly freshmen dorm, I would also suggest West Campus. Towers is also convenient but there is no dining hall anymore in the dorm and also the rooms are smaller. Shelton and Myles Standish are nice dorms but have a great percentage of upperclassmen. The Brownstones on Bay State are great, less people- less traditional dorm style and convenient to the main campus but again there's a greater mix of upperclassmen.
Housing is guaranteed 4yrs provided you meet the housing application deadlines.

West Campus is a great place to live freshman year. It is the only area with a grassy spot to hang out on, and it is located far enough away from campus to escape the incessant motion of daily life. Kids are often hanging out outside, playing guitar, talking, and generally interacting with one another—a sight rarely seen in city campus life. The dorm is also situated next to the football field, which is the perfect spot to play on snow days, sleep on clear nights, or kiss on the 50-yard line in the early morning.
Whatever you do, stay away from Warren Towers. It is the largest non-military dorm in the United States, and it is a freshman machine. It even resembles a factory in appearance—you have to see it to push the analogy all the way. If you have ever seen the Pink Floyd movie, The Wall, pay attention to the scene accompanying that very song—that is it exactly. Other, smaller dorms are usually a safe bet but tend to be more secluded from campus life. If you can get a hold of a brownstone, don’t give it up. They are by far the nicest living on and (in many cases) off campus.
