No, I don't want to. I like my pitch black hole in the basement isolated from everyone.


Are you scared of people?

Dorming is good for the experience and meeting people. When you commute it is harder to be involved in school stuff outside of classes.


One of the reasons I want to go and experience dorming but it seems it's not worth it..

My dormitories were actually apartments and they were mad expensive but then again everything was provided for.

Everything was furnished and I just had to add little accessories to decorate it just like an apartment as it was basically an apartment with my own bathroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room.

As for safety, depends actually. The plus side is sometimes there are campus security guards. The best thing is to always lock your doors and you have your roommates.

I guess it really depends on which school you go to and what kind of dormitories the school offers.

My advice is to find an apartment near the school as it is quite cheaper but make sure there is security around if you feel unsecured.

Good luck in advanced!

i would love to live in a dormitory. my college provides that option at one campus but its so freaking expensive. if i had the money i wouldn't waste a minute because it teaches you a lot about living on your own, being you, and learning what "your" all about as far as habits and things like that. plus you could meet a lot of cool people there.

I would like to have that experience too, it would have been easier to make friends if you live in the same surroundings. I've got my own place and sharing it with a school friend, been living out of home for almost 3 years now, would have liked it if I did live in some sort of dormitories. Not to mention the wild parties I hear they sometimes have haha.

I'm in one now and it sucks. Here you get your own room in a student house though. Everyone else has a house filled with other people their own age and I'm stuck in with a bunch of yanks in their final year who will be replaced by more yanks after christmas.

They are nice enough, but we don't really mix as they have final projects and big exams and don't want a first year tagging along with them.

Don't room with people you know, you'll start to hate them. Also Roommates suck! either find a medical reason to get a single, or commute for the first two years and then get a single

That happens all the time when you accidentally tag along with higher years..
It's not cool..
