I lived in Barrett my freshman year (and it was awesome), but I will (hopefully!) be living in a single in Bundy next year as a part of a new program to integrate freshmen and upperclassmen. Both are good, but Bundy doesn't have air-conditioning, which is brutal the first few weeks.
Is Bundy not going to be all first years next year??
Both Barrett and Bundy are first year dorms, but they don't like to put freshman in singles unless requested. The singles are mostly reserved for RAs and upperclassmen who are placed based on an application process. They are responsible for leading some programs for the dorm. Mostly the dorms are all freshmen.
Does a certain student tend to go to one over the other? I also want coed by room, not floor.
Nope. It's random as far as I know. I don't think there are any co-ed options by floor. I lived between guys last (freshman) year and I live around guys this year. They haven't allowed women and men to room together yet, but that's only a matter of time...

While some dorms may offer more spacious and attractive living spaces, and others host more eccentric bands of students, all campus housing is clean and liveable. Warren, Wilson, and Bundy are popular dorms due to their recent facelifts, though some students contend that they are overly sterile and do not offer the same bonding experiences as OA, EH, and Barrett. EH and Barrett kids are notorious for their work ethic, and Hoerner (the quiet dorm, said to be designed by a prison architect) is in a class of its own. If you're a social butterfly, steer clear, or you'll end up feeling more like a caterpillar in a cocoon. Most students continue living in campus housing for most or all of their college career, tending to move out of dorms and into theme houses and friendship houses as sophomores and upperclassmen. Theme houses offer an opportunity for students with common interests to live together and build a community around shared languages, belief systems, or passions. By senior year, most students apply for friendship houses with a group of buddies, or live in Norwich Lodge (a converted conference center) or Brick City (a College-owned neighborhood of faculty and upperclassman apartments).
If you want to stay on campus all four years, Residence Life will be delighted, and you shouldn't have too much trouble accommodating your maturing demands. The only nightmare is the housing selection process, complete with lottery numbers, consensus processes, and pure dumb luck of the draw.
