Every campus has "good dorms" and "bad dorms", but there are some dorms that are the envy of all. At Northeastern I remember the West Village apartments were the most sought after, with West Village E and H being at the top of the list, but my last year I lived in Coventry and loved it. It felt better maintained than the WVs and more like a real apartment. But right after I graduated they opened up a new high rise called International Village that's been getting rave reviews.
So what are the best dorms on your school's campus?
Residences on Market (a restored 1907 hotel) are the new 'dorms' at Harrisburg University. But they are like no other dorms I've seen. These first-year student suites have full kitchens (with dishwashers) and bedrooms with glass french-doors. The Capital Rooms in the corner have turret-style windows that give an amazing view of the State Capitol Dome.
I can say the same about Boston University. We recently built the Student Village (StuVi) and Student Village 2 (StuVi2) that are the most sought after dorms on campus. Both have ridiculous views of the city. Our Brownstones in South Campus and on Bay State Road are also popular and come with hardwood floors and fireplaces (not functioning of course).
