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.
You can see pictures of it on our Davison and Nugent page. It has a few shelves in it and a blank side.
They are connected to the basement of Sharp where they do laundry.
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
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)
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.
Suite bathrooms: Davison, Nugent, Barton
Hall bathrooms: Freshman Five (Bray, Cary, Hall, Nason, Crocket), Barton
Individual room/suite bathrooms: Warren, Sharp
At this time the exact number of outlets is not known. That being said, expect 2-3 outlets on each side of the room.
The bathroom lights turn on the fan as well!
No you do not.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Just like any other dorm room, it is up to the roommates to decide who gets what side.
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.
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.
Yes. Davidson and Nugent have two different lights, one per side of the split double.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
