Each dorm on campus has its own reputation. Templin is the smart dorm, Lewis is nice, Hashinger is the artsy dorm, Ellsworth is pretty average, McCollum is run-down, Oliver is the party dorm, and GSP and Corbin are for sorority girls. But these reputations don’t always prove to be true, and most students agree that the quality of dorm life has everything to do with the people surrounding them instead of the actual dorm. On-campus housing is a great place to meet new friends and establish lasting relationships that can last through and past your career at KU.
The University provides students with lots of different campus housing options. Students can choose their roommate or they can go “pot luck” and have the University pair them up with a roomie. Scholarship Halls are available to students based on academic excellence and economic need and can be a good choice for more serious students. Scholarship Hall residents usually live without the distractions of the freshman desire to party, which can envelope some of the other dorms. Whatever the experience turns out to be, dorm life is something most students never forget.
