Yes, you can fit the desk under the loft bed. In Nugen, in-wall shelves are only at one side of the room, you can lean your bed on the other side and don’t need to worry about wasting storage space.
What do the privacy walls look like for Davison?
You can see pictures of it on our Davison and Nugent page. It has a few shelves in it and a blank side.
If Davison/Nugent don’t have laundry rooms where do students do laundry?
They are connected to the basement of Sharp where they do laundry.
How would you rank the freshman dorms? It seems like Sharp would be number one. In what order would you place the remaining dorms.
I would actually not rank Sharp as number one. I personally would rank the Freshman 5 as top. Everyone has a different opinion. That being said, if I were to give mine, it would be the following:
- Freshman Five
Which dorms for freshmen have air conditioning?
Which res halls have kitchens with a stove top?
The following freshman halls have kitchens with a stove top:
- Freshman Five (Bray, Hall, Cary, Crocket, Nugent)
- Davison & Nugent
- Quad (each stack has a kitchen on the first floor with a stove and oven)
What does Davison have in their kitchens? (stove burner?, oven?)
In their kitchen is a stove, oven and a fridge. I believe there is a microwave, but RPI does not guarentee that. While living in Davison or Nugent, you get access to the basement of Sharp, which also has a kitchen that might have a microwave.
For freshmen, does any room have a bathroom or are they suite bathrooms shared between 2 rooms?
Suite bathrooms: Davison, Nugent, Barton
Hall bathrooms: Freshman Five (Bray, Cary, Hall, Nason, Crocket), Barton
Individual room/suite bathrooms: Warren, Sharp
How many electrical outlets are there in a double suite in Davison?
At this time the exact number of outlets is not known. That being said, expect 2-3 outlets on each side of the room.
Recently at the orientation I noticed that bathrooms in Nugent hall do not have a fan. Are all bathrooms like that? Does it become a problem with no venting of the bathrooms?
The bathroom lights turn on the fan as well!
Hi, if I found a roommate to room with but we want a suite, do we also have to find 2 other roommates?
No you do not.
Will be coming in the Fall, Class of 2021. Which Freshman housing options have a/c and which ones do not?
Does Warren have the same bookshelf storage as the dividing wall for the room like Davison or Nugget or is it a different kind of wall?
The wall is different. For some, the closet and dresser are built in like in like the freshman five. Other parts show a cork board. Feel free to look at the pictures here.
Is it bad to have a single as a freshman. I requested duble but was given a single in Nugent.
It is not bad to have a single as a freshman, some people actually prefer it. If you are worried about the social aspect you might just have to make more of an effort to meet people.
Will we be able to sneak a peek of our assigned dorm at SO?
Normally you stay in Barton and Davison during SO because they are air conditioned. If you are living in either of these dorms during the year you can preview your room, but other than that you are unable to see your assigned dorm room.
I’m an incoming freshman, and was wondering which freshmen hall is the best/most popular? Also wondering what the situation is with incoming athletes and rooming. I know some schools make you dorm with teammates
There are pros and cons to each freshman hall. If you talk to current students you will hear each of them say a different hall. If you want to see pros and cons for some of the halls check out the list on the official RPI Class of 20XX Facebook Group, you should be added to that soon. In regards to athletes and rooming, as far as we know you are not required to room with teammates, though highly recommend and most of the time athletic team members room together.
Is Davison Hall is a girl hall or a boy hall? how about its personal privacy? thank you
Davison is co-ed by suite. That means that every two room is the same gender. You will not be sharing a bathroom with another gender
Can you you raise your own bed? What tools are needed?
Beds in the Freshman Five & BARH are adjustable. You just need to pop out the bar and place it in the selected height. A hammer is beneficial, but you don’t need it to adjust the bed. Risers are not recommended for the Freshman Five & BARH as the beds are heavy. You can also choose to loft the beds.
For beds in Nason and Davison, these are not adjustable. You should get risers to raise the bed or choose to loft it.
For Barton, the beds are already lofted and you do not have to do anything.
How high are the spaces under the beds in Nugent? Are the beds adjustable in height without lofting like some of the other dorms? Wondering how big of a trunk I can fit under the bed.
Nugent and Davison have the older beds that do not have the adjustable heights like the Freshman Five. I do not know the measurements of how high they go, but I believe it is somewhere between 2-3 feet. If you go to SO, check then because you stay in Davison and Nugent.
In Davison Hall how do you know which side is yours?
Just like any other dorm room, it is up to the roommates to decide who gets what side.
I’m a incoming freshman and I’m interested in Nugent hall. May I get a few picture that shows the room and its structure, the privacy wall in the center of the room, and the bathroom? I would really appreciate it.
If you look at the tab “Room Photos” and then “Davison and Nugent Hall” you will find almost all of the pictures you are looking for. Sadly, we do not have pictures of the bathroom but the setup is sink in the room, door to the bathroom (lockable), toilet, shower, door to suite room (lockable), sink in room.
Do you have dimensions for Davidson 305? Where is the laundry in Davidson?
You have 274 square feet. We do not have exact dimensions for the room. The laundry for Davison is located in Sharp. There are underground tunnels to allow you to get there and back without having to go outside.
Do rooms in Nugent have separate lights for each side? Basically, can one side of the room have the lights turned off while the other has them on? Also, would you recommend bringing additional lighting?
Yes. Davidson and Nugent have two different lights, one per side of the split double.
I read that they will be opening up Davidson for freshman in a year. Is that true and is it’s location too far away from the other typical freshman living? Also, those rooms seem to be doubles with a divide down the middle making you have some private space. Do you think this is a disadvantage because you don’t end up sitting around talking w/ your roomate because you can’t see them?
Davison is on freshman hill, just like the freshman five and Barton, so it’s not far away at all. Davison is split so you do have your own private space which is just different than other freshman buildings. This doesn’t prevent you from getting to know your roommate, but put effort into hanging out in the common rooms, outside, and other spots on campus.
Hello, for rooms with a shared bathroom (like in davidson), would we have to bring our own bathroom supplies (like plunger, toilet bowl brush, soap dispensers, etc) or is that stuff included?
The shared bathrooms in Davison and Barton do not come with plungers or toilet bowl brushes. They may come with soap dispensers but I recommend you bring your own cleaning/bathroom supplies.
I’m a rising sophomore hoping to live in the WNDS portion of campus, though I no longer have anyone to room with. I have a number between 450 and 500. Do you think there is a chance I can get into a room in that area?
Yes, there is a very good chance. There are more than 300 people who live in WNDS. Many sophomores prefer to live elsewhere on campus (Blitman, STACwyck, etc.) so the first 450-500 won’t all want WNDS.
Also, if someone else takes only half of a double in either of Nugent, Davison, or Warren, you will be one of few people interested in taking the other half.
Hey, so I know that the Barton suite baths have someone who comes to clean it. Is this true for warren, nugent and/or davison halls? Or do you have to clean it yourself?
Most halls have a cleaning staff of some sort. With Warren, Nugent, Davison, and Sharp (WNDS), a cleaning staff person works daily to clean the building (lounges, floors, etc.) and will clean each room’s bathroom once per week.
Do singles in Nugent have a shelf built into the wall like the doubles do?
Short answer: no. You’re either in 215, 311, 315, or 415.
311 has a vertical chest of drawers (about 5’ tall) and a large closet with double sliding doors. Additionally there is a desk, bed, and some shelves below the large window.
The X15’s have a bed, desk, and a built in closet (but still a piece of furniture). The closet is half hanging space. The other half is split into drawers and a cabinet.
Hopefully this makes sense, but there is no large shelf piece diving the rooms as the doubles have.
