Best Dorms at the University of Washington?

cotecccotecc 0 replies2 threads New Member
I was wondering if someone could describe the difference between the North and West campus and the merits of each? Also, which dorms are the 'best'? I will be a freshman at UW this September, and I'm trying to figure out housing. I value a certain degree of privacy, I couldn't imagine sharing a room with two other people in the triplet rooms, but I'm also looking to make friends of course!

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    ^All the dorms are co-ed. I don't think any dorm is single-sex. Most American universities are like this.

    https://www.hfs.washington.edu/housing/default.aspx?id=309 :

    Rooms, clusters and apartments are assigned to students of the same sex. The majority of residence hall floors have students of both sexes living on them, though single-sex floors are available upon request.

    Bathrooms in the residence halls are sex-specific. Students of the opposite sex are not allowed into bathrooms not designated for them. Doors to bathrooms designated for females are equipped with locks, and female residents of the hall are provided with keys.
