With just a few days left in the year 2012, the countdown for the new semester has officially begun. Join us as we count down on facebook.com and add The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College.

My daughter stayed in the shared room at the Residence Hall and has enjoyed living there. She's made very close friends and was able to gain some independence, while being in a place I knew she was safe. The 24 hour security and shuttle service to campus was a big plus for me and helped me not to worry. Being so close to campus was also helpful since she tends to run late. My daughter is very active in school so she's usually there until late and I was worried about her walking home at night, but she's able to get back quickly and safely. The office staff is also supportive and kind. When we ran into some financial issues, the bookkeeper Joann was very helpful in making sure we'd be able to work out our payment. My other children lived at home throughout college but my daughter really wanted the "college experience" and I'm glad the Residence Hall was able to provide it!

The Residence Hall offered me something I didn’t have at home, and that’s peace and quiet! I’m from a large family and shared a bedroom with my brother up until I graduated high school, so I was looking forward to getting away and also getting some space to myself. I play a lot of video games (PC not console, scrubs) and the Wi-Fi did what it’s supposed to. Not a huge fan of cooking for myself so I was a little bummed about the lack of a meal plan, but at the same time there’s a corner store that serves decent food and most people I talked to shop at Target so like, no big deal. I signed for an annual studio and it was nice to not have to leave during the winter or summer too, I don’t envy the people scrambling for a NY apartment at the end of the year. Due to family issues I had to move out after a year, but I am happy to say the Res Hall was fun, social, and for the most part clean. Definitely would recommend to a new student and/or someone looking for the classic “dorm experience” that’s in movies or TV shows.

pretty expensive, but being within a few blocks from campus was very convenient plus lots of opportunities to meet new people and socialize. they have lots of events and stuff where you can hang out and get to know people. overall it was a comfortable experience with private bathrooms, separate heat/ac in each room, and minifridges/hot plates. also the director was really friendly and welcoming.

I don't quite understand how people have all of these positive reviews about this place. I lived here for less than a year and yes it was fun... but thats aside from the point. The building was not maintained, the office is sassy and rude, leaks occur all the time, mold in the bathrooms, broken windows, power outages, poor wifi and the list goes on. The Residence Hall charges $18,000 for a 9 month term. With all of the money they're collecting problems like basic wifi should be resolved. I left the residence hall due to my inability to pay because of a loss of income from my parents. You cannot take out public loans since its considered 'private' which means we had to pay out of pocket. Long story short, I told them in advance that I had to leave due to a lack of finances and they ended up suing me for $9,000 for the second semester. STAY AWAY

Hello Michael. I am glad to hear that your personal experience at the residence hall was an enjoyable one, and we are sorry that you had to move out early due to payment issues. Residents are all informed prior to signing their license agreement that not only is the contract binding once money has been put down, but you are financially responsible for the total balance regardless of when you move out. As for your situation with your suites condition, the Residence Hall at Brooklyn College Maintenance staff is available to make any repairs necessary when a resident submits a work order request form. Since you have left, our WiFi has been updated to a more reliable connection and we are working to make it continuously better for our residents.

It was such a relief two years ago, while sending my partner's son off to college out of state, to know he would be in a building with other college students, with security, and a attendant at the door. The bookkeeper, and other staff were very accommodating and friendly. When they visited the facility and the campus, someone on staff took the time to show them around even though they hadn't scheduled an appointment. I think the location is great, and am thankful for all the clear information on the website. It's great to have pictures and layouts of the different room options. I know it made a huge difference for my partner peace of mind. Thank you!

Living at Brooklyn College residence hall was a great experience from beginning to end. I was booking a room from Texas and Tasha guided me through every step of the way. She answered every single question I had and was so sweet. She even helped me move out a few boxes as I struggled moving jot at the end if my lease by myself. Also Stuart was amaaaazing! He was so helpful and always went out of his way to answer questions. Also my roommate match is still one if my best friends here to date. Any maintenance issue was fixed as long as you follow request protocol. And its such a great price for what you get. If you are moving from out of state this is a very safe and great place!

The establishment was kept clean and well organized. It's location being near college was very beneficial. The living space was adequate and the staff gave me enough reason to say that my time was pretty great!

I moved into the Res Hall my first semester of college and stayed there for a few semesters. It was the first place I lived away from home, and it made adjusting much easier than just moving into an apartment right away. The office staff was always very friendly, and the bookkeeper was helpful with working out payments. Any minor issues were fixed by maintenance in a timely manner after handing in a work order form. The dorm is very close to Brooklyn College, which is super convenient, especially for morning classes (and for anyone who, like me, is super busy and involved in on-campus extracurriculars-- leaving campus late at night took no more than ten minutes to get back home, and for anyone who may feel unsafe walking at night, the Brooklyn College safety shuttle drives you back to the dorm for free)! As with any place you live, there are some minor issues, but most of them are not due to RHBC itself, and if you report the issue, the staff does their best to fix it. There are many amenities that also make the Res Hall worthwhile, such as the laundry room, fitness room, music room, quiet study room, and common lounge, all located in the basement. The dorms are one of the easiest and quickest ways to meet new people in college. I've had a few different roommates and some roommate issues, but the staff was helpful in resolving them, and I ended up with new roommates who I became great friends with. I met some of my first friends at the dorms, and have a group of best friends now who I met in the dorms and was able to hang out with every day. I've since moved into my own apartment with a few roommates, some of which I met through the dorms which helped me have the comfort of already being friends, rather than having to live on my own with people I barely knew. The res hall is also within walking distance to a large Target, and the 2, 5, B, and Q trains. I'd recommend it to students who are just starting their college career and who are living away from home for the first time- you'll be close to school, won't have to worry about traveling to a gym, laundromat, or library, and you'll make some great new friends!
