Dorms vary from Lander’s high-rise rooms with a view of Mt. Rainier to McCarty’s more modern living areas on North Campus. Proximity to campus poses a huge variable. Terry/Lander require a bit of a hike to Central Campus but only a short walk to the Ave., while McCarty, Haggett, and McMahon are nestled right in the Quad’s backyard. It’s pretty much the luck of the draw, with one guarantee: Your room will be tiny. Because of over-enrollment, UW often squeezes three people into a room originally built as a cozy double.
Lucky roommate matches end as inseparable friends throughout college, but just as many can’t stand each other by the end of the quarter. Don’t think you’ll avoid the problem by living with a best friend from high school, either—that’s not always the case. Many people find that such close quarters make living with anyone a difficult situation.
