If you thought designing student dorms was pretty easy wait until you see the best college dorms in the world! I wouldn’t even call them dorms by the way.
Student life is not always a piece of cake as many may think. There is always that period of exams and projects where you can’t even leave your desk for a couple hours of sleep, annoying teachers that fail you for no apparent reason and lots of other things that I won’t include in this article otherwise everyone would quit going to university. But of course there’s always room for throwing partys with friends, meeting new people on dinners, and chilling in college dormsplaying games, what is pretty cool.
Usually when we think about college dorms we instantly think about the traditional American Piemovie where chaos exists everywhere. But what if I tell you there are actually dorms that seem like authentic luxury hotelswhere celebrities spend vocations in? Well here are they.
5 – THE RETREAT, CORVALLIS
This retreat for Oregon State University students takes off-campus living to a new level. In addition to private bedrooms and bathrooms, residents at The Retreat at Corvallis also have access to a number of perks, from an on-site yoga studio to a complimentary coffee bar and a resort-style pool. Another highlight: the indoor golf simulator for students to work on their swing and de-stress.
So you have an idea of its architecture this is one of the few houses in the campus. It definitely doesn’t look like a student dorm right? Right.
4- MORGENS HALL, CINCINNATI
No, this high-rise isn’t some New York City skyscraper. Its home to 456 students at the University of Cincinnati. Renovated in 2013, Morgens Hall is clad in 2,000 glass panels, featuring a high-tech and eco-friendly design and architecture. Inside, you’ll find studios and apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows, ceramic tile bathrooms and vinyl composition tile flooring throughout, making for some luxurious digs.
For University of Houston students, dorm life at Calhoun Lofts is the epitome of luxury. Outside the living spaces, students are treated to a theater room, two roof terraces, a private courtyard, and, every student’s dream: free laundry rooms.
Each loft unit features 10-foot ceilings in addition to granite countertops and exposed concrete for an urban design.
2 – OSPREY FOUNTAINS, JACKSONVILLE
This five-story building would be any student’s dream home. Housing a total of 1,000 students, Osprey Fountains at the University of North Florida offers single, double as well as private rooms, not to mention some pretty awesome features, like a 24-hour library, a ’50s diner and the Galaxy, a gamer’s retreat equipped with TVs and desk stations.
1- HUB ON CAMPUS, TUCSON
University of Arizona students who choose to live off-campus at the Hub On Campus Tucson are welcome to enjoy 11,000 square feet of world-class amenities. Beyond the spacious rooms, which come fully furnished (with quartz countertops and porcelain bathroom tile, no less), the property offers an infinity-edge rooftop pool, a sand volleyball court with a 22-foot outdoor TV screen and a sundeck with chairs, among other amenities.
And if there’s something that can truly impress us on a daily basis is architecture. I mean where else could we see a match between the words “student” and “luxury”?
