Housing Application

<p>Someone said that the other Housing thread had to do with apartments, so I made this one for people to discuss residential halls and stuff. I have a question since I'm in the middle of my housing application.</p>

<p>Can someone tell me the pros/cons of East vs. West campus?</p>

<p>Most freshman classes are in or near the Pentacrest, so east side dorms will be closer. The east side is also really the heart and soul of campus: most undergrads reside there, be it in dorms, apts or Greek, and downtown Iowa City is there. The west side is close to the hospital and more research-oriented buildings - and the stadium, of course. My son is a sophomore and he and his friends think of the west side as some sort of foreign country. Even though it's about a half mile away.</p>
