The Dormy Awards: Best college residence halls

Downtown loft? Or college dorm? Seton Hall at DePaul University placed third on the list!

The college dorm is a magical place, isn’t it? Love it or hate it, it is where many college memories are made and many nights forgotten.

Most of us fondly recall the cold, tile floors, rickety bunk beds, broken AC window units (or none at all) and flimsy vinyl shower curtains of our own college dorms. However, there is a new generation of dorms– dorms that are probably nicer than the apartment you can afford during your first (or second) job. So enjoy it while it lasts!

CampusSplash
has compiled a list of the country’s top 15 best dorm from about 9,000 votes from college students. Behold– the 2012-2013 Dormy Awards! Students say these dorms feel more like apartments or hotels. Check out the list and rankings below. Do you agree with the winners?
