Don't waist your money . You are getting nothing but filth and a jail cell. This place is too expensive. These people will tell you anything to get your money . Upon moving in they do not thoroughly clean the rooms . The walls are super paper thin. (You hear everything!!!) No vents in the bathroom just calls for mold, mildew, etc. They need tohave laundry included in the amount we pay. Having one real stove in the whole residence hall can be super annoying as well . Some of the workers don't know how to mind their business. I hate target its really expensive. The Mets is not that good of a supermarket. Don't buy meat from them. If you want a real grocery store take a dollar van up a few blocks to Tilden to stop and shop. I personally liked the convenience of the train . I also liked the dollar vans. The security is good . The students you meet are great ! This place needs to be shut down, and rebuilt . I think they shouldn't have put carpet throughout the whole residence Hall the order is ridiculous . They should have done tile or something else . When you visit this place don't let the model rooms fool you .

If you can avoid this place, do it. The only positive attributes of the establishment is the convenience to the school, the company of the other residence, and not worrying about monthly utility bills. Besides that, the building has multiple problems. They don't upkeep the hygiene, there are consistent problems with the elevators and plumbing, it's extremely over priced for what's included, you cannot receive financial aid for payments because it's not directly affiliated with the college, and nothing is included like a stereotypical dorm. You'll find cheaper properties around the Brooklyn college and Brooklyn.

If you can find a better option, do it. All they want is your money, the management don't care about you and charge you out the ass for so much less. The rooms are tiny, the place is filthy and you have very little rights. The only good part about it is that you are surrounded by kids your age and the campus is a couple blocks away. For only being here a semester, there has seen rats, cockroaches, brown water constantly, and the bathrooms don't even have vents in them so mold grows rapidly..You cant even get onto the roof. Dont let the fake google reviews fool you...they obviously wrote them themselves.

Do NOT move here. Truly a waste of money, what you're paying could get you an apartment of your own where you don't have to deal with this crap. 1. DIRTY: The person who posted all the pictures (who I assume is the owner of this private "business") must have taken them years and years ago because ALL couches and ALL chairs are ripped and stained ALL over by god knows what. The common room and quiet study rooms are barely even used. The stairways have dust EVERYWHERE. 2. Incompetent Staff: the RAs are nothing more than your typical disinterested, self righteous college students. Why are they left to run the show? Today in the dorms there was an EXTREME LEAK! I'm talking EXTREME. My room got the least of it, but they were full on puddles in the hallways of floors 2 and 3. All the while, the RAs completely ignored us when we went for help. They wouldn't even give us a freaking bucket for the water. The dude didn't even acknowledge our presence and just said "we know and were working on it". THEY WERE GIVING A F*CKING TOUR WHILE OUR ROOMS WERE FLOODING EVERYONE! Our water is still brown, our bathroom is unusable, our carpets are WET. 3. "Security": it's just for show. If someone wanted to get in, they could. Really, the security only inconveniences you if you want to sign an overnight guest in after 9pm. Really? This isn't summer camp... Were paying to live here we should be able to sign people in at our leisure. Were technically adults! Other things: vending machine always out of drinks on all floors, garbage piles up outside the chute when the chute is full and you can smell it all through the dorms. Recycling is the same way. Walls are basically built of paper. Every time a door shuts the walls shake. I can hear the vibration from my neighbors cell phone through the walls next door. They don't even refill the toilet paper in the bathrooms. Long story short: don't move here. It's a scam by the landlord who's making a huge profit off of all of us. Myself included, unfortunately. The RAs just said themselves: the landlord is very cheap so he will try to get out of repairing our rooms after this flood. That speaks volumes. DONT MOVE HERE!

heaters suck leaks everywhere, rooms to small and was dirty when I came into it, the showers take forever to get hot. the hot plates suck. The common room stays dirty and the kitchen has no kitchenets and if you leave anything in the kitchen they throw yours away they have all does cabinets and drawers for nothing and they don't even let you do monthly payments they think were all ritch or somthing

Do not move to this Residential Hall. You'll be better off renting a room or an apartment nearby. The rooms are quite small, even for a single person. The place is overpriced. If you have no choice (for some whatever reason) but to live hear, than sign a contract per semester, not an year because otherwise they won't let you leave if you want to leave after one semester. I signed an two semester contract...and after realizing better deals else where, i asked for removal, but i was only left with a rude answer of no. Just please listen to my advice and go somewhere else...my friend is currently renting a room bigger than me for 700/month with a shared kitchen, bathroom and a wifi....where as im paying 4495 per sem, which is aobut 1100/month. although there's other people saying good things about this hall and giving good review, they will all have something to complain about this hall Believe the words of me, who is currently living in residential hall...and others who gave the same reviews below me.

Looking for a home at Brooklyn College? Save yourself (at least) $10,000 and buy a nice cardboard box. I've been here for a year, and the first thing you need to know about this place is that it was clearly built down to a price. The lowest price. From the sandpaper-like carpeting to the mental ward color scheme, there is no evidence that this corporately-owned monolith even attempts to meet the expectations that come along with such a high price. When you're in your doghouse-sized room (true even for the more expensive single rooms), you'll find that the WiFi seldom works well enough to buffer a Netflix video, much less do your work in your room. Aside from this, the walls are paper thin, the way the building was built creates an eerie howling sound whenever there's wind, and there is always a heavy odor wherever you are; ranging from marijuana to garbage. In keeping with the low cost of building this dorm, the scarcely stateside owner also keeps maintenance costs low by keeping a skeleton staff with no overnight shifts for repairs or emergencies. This became apparent a little over a month ago, when my toilet inexplicably pumped about an inch of water across my entire suite while I was in class. Because this happened after 5 pm, I was handed a mop by one of the live-in managers (who coincidentally, gave a 5-star review of the building below). This however, was not enough for the massive amount of water that collected in my suite, and soon it began to drip down to every suite below mine, right down to the basement. The people running the building, however, are very nice, and helpful when the limited means imposed by the owner allow it. But their jobs rely on convincing more unknowing residents into moving in each year, and this is why I suspect many of the 5-star reviews by faceless "google users" are actually people employed by the building itself trying to keep it above three stars, because no resident in their right mind would do so. Don't make the same mistake I did, get an apartment and live like the human being you are.

DO NOT MOVE HERE!!!! This is actually not part of Brooklyn College this is a private owned company that uses Brooklyn college name.This has to be the worst management ever! As a future business owner my first priority would be to take care of your customers and they will take care of you. This phrase is as foreign to them as the owner who is from Israel. They take advantage of students by pressuring them with emails stating the rooms are almost full and there is no guarantee for rooms without down-payment. They promote a "discount" if you sign up for two years. They do this because they know once you find out how much you can get your own place for you will want to move. You can find a decent room around Brooklyn college for $500-$700 a month. You will pay $4500 for 5 months to live in the ghetto in the cheapest room (room A), which is probably the same size as a jail cell with a bunk-bed included you will also get a roommate. It's not even worth it for New York Standards. The office staff has changed 2 times during the one semester I stayed there. They don't even know your name or care. The only time they contact you is to pay your bill. If you don't do it they will threaten to throw you out immediately, constantly. Which, is is Illegal but they don't expect the students to know that. I moved in because I had nowhere else to go. The staff member at the time tried to pressure me into getting a private loan to pay my deposit to hold my room that was not "guaranteed". I later found out they allowed another resident to not pay their deposit at that moment, So, basically they will tell you anything. When I eventually moved in my room was dirty due to my roommate already moving in months beforehand. They told me they will not clean it because my roommate was already there and I had to put in a request because they had other rooms to clean. I than had to go out and buy cleaning products and clean my room. That was a nice welcome! not even a welcome package to live in a "dormitory". The entire building was also infested with fruit flies! This place has no business structure at all. The bookkeeper is rude and is incompetent. I do not recommend this to anyone save your money and a give it to someone who would appreciate it. I am currently trying to get the resident hall revoked from promoting it's business to Brooklyn College students. They should not be allowed to take advantage of students! You cant even get financial aid for it since its not apart of the school.
