Any recommendations on best dorm at IU for student that also wants close access to Kelley school of business?
Personally, this is what I recommend, but everyone is different:
- Union Street Center - If you are willing to spend a lot of money, I think this one is the best. You have a kitchen, private bathroom that you share with a roommate (unless you’re in a single), washer and dryer, and fridge. There’s a C-Store near by for quick pick up on snacks, sandwiches, produce, sanitary products, school supplies, etxc. I personally liked how studious my neighbours were, but if you’re into partying you might want to try somewhere else. On average, it’s a 10-minute walk from Kelley, and there are 3 bus stops at Cedar, Beech, and Hickory.
- Teter- This dorm is renovated and looks beautiful inside. The study rooms are amazing, and you have a semi-private bathroom you share with your floor. In between Wright dorm and USC C-Store if you’re hungry and there’s a bus stop. About a 6-7 minute walk from Kelley.
- Wilkie - Suite-styled bathrooms, communal kitchen, and relatively spacious rooms. The Go Express comes here if you’re flying home, and there’s a bus stop here too. Lots of cultural events are held at Wilkie if you’re into that. About a 13-15 minute walk from Kelley.
Briscoe, Wright, and McNutt are some other dorms near Kelley that I can’t speak much on. Wright is a 5 minute walk from Kelley and next to Wells library, and it has a major dining hall. I believe McNutt has a buffet. Briscoe is enhanced and is suite styled but smaller rooms than Wilkie I think. I know Briscoe has a reputation for partying and maybe McNutt.
