I think the real question is if we assign each dorm a Hogwarts house or a Game of Thrones house.

Ugh, all I want in this world is a North room.

If Gropius has a closet next to the laundry room and air conditioning machinery that runs $2K per month, that will surely be the room I end up with. Damn you, housing lottery.

Gropius doesn't have air conditioning so it will probably be a water heater. HTH

I feel like North has to be Stark.

What sort of info did you all put in the "Special Circumstances" box for the Student Financial Resources financial aid form? Is this where I'd put that my stepmom doesn't support me? I'm guessing my dad is going to be putting that in the parent form.. I also wonder how in-depth the explanations here need to be.

I wonder if there are a lot of people who got a window for both housing options and will choose the dorms. That's what I'm doing; I got a 5/13 HUH window, but I won't use it.


I'm mostly worried about the upperclassmen, but I'll take any glimmer of hope at this point.

Am I missing something re: Hastings and North?


Hastings and North have bigger rooms and better bathroom situations. A lot of people don't want the UG dorm feel that Gropius has so they go to Hastings and North. If you don't mind living in a small room and sharing a communal bathroom with a lot of people, Gropius type 1 is definitely the best option.

I know I mentioned this a page or two earlier, but I found a good HUH apartment for me and my SO by more or less making the "view currently available" page my homepage for two weeks. Keep an eye out and if something pops up, snag it. At least by being late in the lottery you know you likely won't be passing up a perfect place by choosing a good one out of the currently available page.

+1 to this, solid advice. Its my escape plan given the harshbrowns the HUH lottery served me.

So I wasn't one of the 250 people who got a HLS dorms window and now my HUH window isn't until June. Wow, Harvard hates me :P

Is a room between my room and the lounge enough to buffer the noise?

From the "Ask a Harvard Student" thread, my impression is that the walls in the dorms are thick so you wouldn't be bothered by noise from the lounge, but the doors in the dorms don't block noise well so if anyone leaves the lounge to talk in the hallway near your door, you'll hear their whole conversation.

For whatever that's worth.
