A Day in the Life of one of our Residents
For most students, college marks a time of life in which there is a lot of change. Obviously, that extends to living arrangements as well. While there is no one typical day for a resident at the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College due to the nature of higher education itself, there remain several elements and amenities that will offer a level of consistency that is quite comforting. No matter if you're a senior studying anthropology or a freshman trying to figure his or her way in the world, you'll discover tons of positives to the Residence Hall.
Perhaps most comforting to students and parents is the level of security afforded to those who live here. There is a security guard located in the main lobby twenty four hours a day, plus close-circuit cameras in the public areas, perimeter, entrances, and elevators. Additionally, there is a shuttle to and from Brooklyn College that runs until 3am as well as close access to buses and subways. Of course, there are the standard safety features such as fire and carbon monoxide detectors. One other key aspect of security has to do with the financial aspects of living in the building. Even though some of our apartments are two bedrooms with multiple tenants, each resident is given an individual license agreement. That means that you don't have to worry if your roommates are not paying their rent!
Another feature that is consistent in a typical day living at the Residence Hall is the stellar amenities included with each room. No matter whether you have a private room or you share a room with a carefully selected roommate, these same features will grace your dwelling. Each apartment will be furnished with a bed, desk, chair, and wardrobe for each student. Furthermore, appliances such as a refrigerator, a microwave, and a hot plate are standard. Included in your pricing are all utilities (with air conditioning), wireless Internet, and cable TV.
This level of superior amenities extends to the common areas as well. In a typical day, a resident might do any number of activities within the building. A quiet study room is available at all times, plus you can use a meeting room for group studies or projects. The wireless internet is also reachable in the entire building. If you enjoy hanging out in a common area, the community lounge is a wonderful asset. The Residence Hall also boasts a fitness room and wonderful views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, which is a priceless feature indeed. Of course, no residence hall or dormitory is complete without laundry facilities, which are on site.
In college or graduate school, no student's day is just like that of another. However, at the Residence Hall, the level of security and the number of amenities work together to provide a base level of consistency that allows for some normalcy in a time period that many find chaotic, if not turbulent. With housing available for fall, spring, and summer semesters, plus an option for year round leasing, this building could be the spot you're looking for.
