Dorm Room Size

<p>10 x 13 double...</p>

<p>10'6" X 10'6" single with a sink.</p>

<p>Is my room size really that surprising? :( Its actually longer then it is wide. Heres the link: UCCS</a> | Residence Life mines the bottom one :D</p>

<p>Mine's 15X13 and that includes the space for the vanity/sink area and the closet.
It's a double, btw.</p>

<p>I have a single in a suite next year that's 7'x9'8". That's right kids, less than 68 square feet (and that includes the closet).</p>

<p>According to my school's web site, the apartment-style dorm I lived in last year's bedroom was 13x13. But we also had a large living area, kitchen and bathroom. So we didn't need that much bedroom space.</p>

<p>We also had the handicap accessible room (for whatever reason), so it was probably slightly larger.</p>

<p>My double is around 180 without closet space, and probably around 200 square feet with the closet space (the closet space takes up the narrow front portion of the room)</p>

<p>7x9.8 is like the size of a walk in closet. :(</p>

<p>@icedragon: UCCS sounds like...the Waldorf-Astoria of residential life. But then again...I've heard only nightmares about dorms.</p>

<p>I'm not sure what the dimensions on my bedroom are like this year, but I'll be in a 4-bedroom, 6-person townhome (on campus) with my own bedroom and bathroom. :D</p>

<p>Most dorms really aren't as bad as they're made out to be.</p>

<p>I don't think its the dorm so much as the people who room with you. Oh, and your past experiences in cramped environments.</p>

<p>^True..I was extremely blessed with my roommates last year.</p>

<p>icedragon - Yeah...Look at these other room sizes for doubles and triples! Your room is huge! Plus, it has a private bath! Again, my double is 10x15...</p>

<p>Private...bath...(Brings tears to my eyes, worse than with onions)</p>

<p>I've actually never in my life experienced a private bath. My family currently shares one bathroom between 10 people...</p>

<p>Dorm room size wasn't as bad as the issue of bathrooms for me freshmen year. </p>

<p>Coming from having a 3 sink bathroom to myself, to sharing 6 sinks with 35 guys.
Let's just say it wasn't the best. </p>

<p>Thankfully this year I'll have my own.</p>

<p>:D I got lucky. I was also put on the 4th floor (top floor)..... i don't know if thats good or not.</p>

<p>alexandrafitzmor - One bathroom with 10 people??? Holy cow!</p>

<p>Our school doesn't list the dorm dimensions :/ . Or at least, I can't find them anywhere. But we live in 2-3 bedroom apartments with 1 or 2 private baths, a living room, and a kitchen. I'm excited :D</p>

<p>oi have 13 3 * 15 and it's triple</p>

<p>Yeah...its terrible here at home- the girl/guy dynamic is hilarious though. GET OUT OF THE FREAKING BATHROOM! WHAT ARE YOU READING, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA?!</p>

<p>I can imagine.</p>
