I'm going to be a transfer student in Fall and I completed the housing application, ranking apartments above dorms and checking the option of preferring a single bedroom. Is it hard to get a single bedroom apartment? It said that they try to put transfer students into Ram Village, which only has 17 singles. Considering that transfer students are low on the priority list (with returning students and freshman put into housing first), do you think a lot of people will try to get those 17 singles? Another thing to consider is that Ram Village is prioritized to Juniors and Seniors, and I'll be a Junior.
I take it 17 singles means 17 singles remaining after the returning students took their pick in february? If thats the case I don't think it will be a problem. Freshman don't get into ram village, period. It seems like sophomore transfers get stuck in craig fairly often but as a junior I think you'll definitely get a ram village double, maybe a single.
wait are you trying to get a one bedroom apartment with a single or a single room in a 3 or 4 bedroom apartment because that makes a difference. one bedroom apartments are extremeley limited. but in the 5 ram village buildings there are plent of 3 and four bedroom apartments with private bedrooms and 3 or 4 bedroom apartments with double bedrooms.
Yeah, there are only 17 total. So I'm curious as to whether or not they are hard to get into. They are more expensive so maybe that draws people away... money isn't really an issue for me with it though. I'll have to get a loan regardless but I just really want to live alone for personal reasons. I just want to know what my chances are of getting into one. I'm getting antsy and there's still 2 months left until I find out!
Isn't Granville pretty party-scene heavy? And way more expensive than the other on campus housing?
A lot of the floors are pretty party-heavy, but the single-bedroom (aka VIP) floors are pretty quiet and have nice rooms. The suites aren't really expensive at all considering their location and the mealplan that is included, but the single bedroom units cost a bit more. The poster stated that costs weren't really an issue though, which is why I suggested it.
Yeah, I had no idea Granville even had single bedroom apartments. I got a packet in the mail with some details about Granville, but it sounded to me like you would have a roommate no matter what so I instead applied for on-campus housing. I'll just cross my fingers and hope for the best now. I don't want to apply to Granville and have to cancel my on-campus application and pay $200.
