    A lot has been posted here in the past. Just search in this forum specifically, searching on the name of the private dorm you are interested in.

    Today we drove up to UT to check out some of their dorms. We stumbled upon Dobbie after 5 PM. We decided to take a look. The leasing office was already closed so we walked up to the front desk to see if we could see the rooms & the facilities. They weren't very accommodating perhaps for security reasons so we left...The people there are not rude but they are just not as friendly as all the others that we've seen...

    The lobby, the restaurants downstairs & the overall upkeep of the place (from what I can see) fail to impress me. I will not want my child to stay there..

    I stayed at the Castilian over the summer for Speech Camp.

    The food was OK...pretty much typical dorm food although the salad bar was pretty good.

    Facilities/amenities were decent...they had a good DVD collection, a pretty nice swimming pool, and a gym. The rooms are conjoined by one bathroom (so basically 4 ppl share a private bath), and they had a microwave and fridge for each room. The elevators are extremely slow...Usually, you have to wait at least 5-10 minutes for them, and it's almost impossible to not take the elevator because the first residential floor is around the 11th floor and goes all the way to the 20's.

    Rooms in themselves were pretty plain and ordinary. The place, on the whole, was pretty old but livable. The whole experience was about two stars out of five.
