Moving away from home and starting a college journey can be scary, but nowadays universities are trying to adapt and make students feel at home. There’s a lot to consider from location to academics when choosing a college to attend after high school.
There are several benefits of living on campus, like simply waking up and heading to class. While some students feel that living off-campus may be a cheaper alternative, on-campus housing may be included in a scholarship or, for some students, the best out of the college experience.
And when in doubt, students can turn to The Princeton Review for advice. This year’s Review ranked High Point University, a private university in North Carolina, as the top spot for “best college dorms.”
HUGE SUITES, BALCONIES, LOUNGES & OTHER AMENITIES AT HIGH POINT
According to High Point’s website, the university offers apartment-style single rooms to double-occupancy shared facilities for all students. It also has initiatives to facilitate a sense of belonging, including a peer mentor program.
First-year students have a choice between five residence halls, including Belk Hall, where suites are either four bedrooms or three bedrooms (for either six or eight students) and each has an entrance from an outside balcony-walkway, four bedrooms, a lounge area, and a shared bathroom. Two students share each room, making a total of eight students sharing a bathroom.
See the table below for the 20 best college dorms in the United States based on The Princeton Review.
