Pomona's dorms are an eclectic bunch, and opinions regarding how nice they are vary widely. Something particularly nice about Pomona is that it is relatively easy to get a single if you want one. This can have all kinds of advantages, aside from the obvious romantic ones. However, there are some often overlooked benefits to having a roommate. It can be a valuable learning experience to live with someone else; you must learn to curb your habits, and you might gain that sought-after mark of maturity known as acceptance. Also, you won't get lonely with a roommate, and you'll find it easier to meet people, as well. What many underclassmen don't realize is that, to get the really nice rooms (the big ones with fireplaces and personal balconies), you must nearly always sacrifice the option of having a single as a senior. If you want a single but still want to be close to your friends, you may end up with a balcony or a courtyard, but the interiors of your rooms will resemble the interiors of tenement housing. For many, the choice between having a single and having a really nice room can be a tough one.
Dorms here are constantly being renovated, and as such, they tend to be relatively clean and well-appointed. As 98 percent of Pomona students live on campus all four years of college, the College places high priority on forming a "residential community."
