Again, I'm only on campus for class and I don't live in the dorms but our school policies are fairly good! There isn't much parking and if you park on the street incorrectly you WILL get a ticket from the city.

I love the computer labs and software at D'Youville. Certain labs can be a little slow when there are a lot of people on the computers, but other than that they provide really nice computers. We just got Windows 8 touch screen capability on a few computers and we also have a lot of Macs. Anyone is happy since we have Windows and Mac!! Also, printing is FREEEE!!! which is a plus at any school!!

I really enjoy Buffalo as a college student. I would never live here if it wasn't for the school. Our local professional sports teams are pretty terrible as most know, the Bills (football) and the Sabres (hockey) are both very popular and everyone loves to go to the games to have a good time, but they hardly ever win!! It's beautiful here in the fall and Lake Erie is always beautiful! We're very close to Canada, so it can be a lot of fun to go over the bridge and spend the day in Canada!

I am only on campus for school and I don't really participate in any of the sporting events. However, I always see signs posted at the school for homecoming and all the special events for sports. I even see signs for just regular games too!!

Health & Safety:
D'Youville is located downtown and there's a lot of creepy people that wander on the campus.
College Junior 2013-11-07T16:06:53Z
Parking is the worst here. They sell parking tickets at around $75, but sell way more tickets than they have spots.
College Junior 2013-11-07T16:05:22Z
There's not that many places within walking distance, especially when it gets colder, you don't want to go to far.
College Junior 2013-11-07T16:03:51Z
Overall D'Youville is an okay college. As a commuter I find it harder to enjoy certain activites along with my work schedule.

You can buy a parking pass for a fee of $80 to be able to park in the lots available, but there is hardly enough spots in the lots for the students which leaves you to access street parking. Street parking is very disorganized and if all spots are taken near the school, you are forced to park further away from school in an area that isnt really safe. There have been vehicle break-ins, and things stolen from people walking down the street, and because it is not college property, it is not under security.

There's not that much that happens at dyouville. There are a few parties and clubs you can attend. Although a lot of the clubs you have to be over the age of 21.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T00:30:36Z
Parking permits are $70 every year and unless you have a early class you will not find a parking spot. The school is in the city so there isn't much space for parking lots.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T00:25:39Z
Dyouville is a small school so there is really no need for shuttles or anything like that. Most of the students either dorm or commute.
College Junior 2013-09-13T17:44:19Z
I understand that D'Youville College is small, so I would rate their options as good for a small college. There's a dining hall with unlimited options and amounts offered for a flat price twice a day, and a couple of cafe's for soups, sandwiches, and salads. If you want really great diverse food, the campus is located within the perfect spot in the city. There are thriving refugee communities that have resulted in restaurants that offer Somalian, Ethiopian, and Burmese food to name a few. The campus is also within the heart of the city, and downtown, which has a variety of options for every palate.

D'Youville College's curriculum for most majors is very strict and rigorous. Many students transfer in from larger universities, or are veterans, and understand the importance of the education they're receiving. I haven't heard of any house parties, or witnessed any drug use on or off campus. I transferred in from a large university where everything from alcohol and pot to aderal and xanax was rampant, so this much smaller campus is a nice change for someone who's serious about their education.

Health & Safety:
The campus is small and there is a constant presence of multiple, friendly security staff. They patrol the surrounding areas and are happy to walk you to your car after dark. The security office takes every complaint seriously and alerts the rest of the campus population of any new precautions to consider, since the campus is located within the city and spread out over a public and residential area.

The cost of the dorms are very high in my opinion. I am happy that they have separate buildings for older students. The housing process was fairly easy as it is a small school, so they can give you the extra attention to ensure your needs are met.
College Junior 2013-08-30T14:41:59Z
I have not noticed a big drug scene at D'youville College. they have strict alcohol use in the dorms, even in the 21 plus dorms.
College Junior 2013-08-30T14:40:27Z
There are only two cafes on campus and then the dining hall. The food options at the cafes are awful and they are both closed by five. The dining hall is closed by 630, so if you have a night class or classes that run past six you have no options for dinner except to go off campus or a vending machine. The food is average in the dinning hall.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
