Vassar dorms are not only elegant-with their Elizabethan-style architecture-but most feel very much like homes. Similar to a living room, the parlor of each dorm has a Steinway piano, coffee tables, and couches used for group meetings, studying, weekly dorm events, study breaks, and napping. Dorms are equipped with house kitchens, TV lounges, and laundry facilities. Also, two or more members of the faculty-complete with families and pets-live in each dorm. As much of the social life of Vassar happens in the space of the dorms, students value the laid-back atmosphere that allows for a fun environment. Each dorm plans all-campus parties and weekly get-togethers.
There are no designated freshman dorms at Vassar. All students live intermingled on coed floors with coed bathrooms except for the all-female dorm, Strong. The charm of each building is in its personality, which is upheld by the incoming class placed there every year. Freshmen are not given a room choice, but they are usually placed in one-room doubles. Most students are happy with their placements, as the Residential Life Office makes a substantial effort to sort students accordingly. Generally, students stay in the same dorm until their senior year when they move to Vassar-owned apartments, which serve as the hub of party life for most of the student population.
