Living at the 1760 Residence Hall

Sharing a room with a random person after having your own for 18 years takes some getting used to, but it’s not all bad.  You get to make an instant friend.

I met my roommate Maya through the Facebook page and I know many others met their roommates that way. I got to know her for a few months, so when we moved in it all went pretty smoothly.

The building is shared between multiple colleges, so you get to meet people from different schools. The Residence Hall provides many events every week like yoga and self-defense classes. 

The Residence Hall also holds random events like ice cream parties and movie nights and holiday themed events like trick or treating or a Thanksgiving meal!

The room sizes vary, but I live in a standard double, which is the same as a compact double, but it has a hallway that adds a lot more space. All the rooms come with beds, desks, closets, a full size refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and its own bathroom, which is the biggest perk.

When it comes to storage my roommate and I both brought nightstands, storage bins, and a bookshelf that holds our food and dishes. You have to be very organized because in such a small room, it can get messy quick.

Overall, living in the 1760 Residence Hall is a great idea, especially if you’re a freshman. There is easy access to the six train, which is basically the only train you need to master as an LIM student.
