quesojust replied to your post: Does anyone know it there is room in CTC for a futon, either with a normal height or lofted bed? I know that the rooms are about 10 by 12 but im not sure how its laid out, where the doors are etc. thanks!
You might be able to squeeze a futon in with an unlofted bed if youre clever about some other stuff, but you can easily fit it with a lofted bed (which is totally allowed)

The beds are loftable, but unless you have a corner room, its not really feasible to have a futon.

I definitely don’t think there’s room to have one with a non-lofted bed (and I’m not sure you’re allowed to loft the beds?) Between the closet, bed, and desk you don’t have a whole lot of extra space.
So I am about to submit my housing application as an incoming freshman. I have no idea how housing works? I want to be a part of an LC, but I really want to live in Northwest! I am a science major and where most of the LC's are (Alumni) are way too far from the science buildings! I am in love with Northwest. But my question is, do we also have pick-times like the sophomore, juniors? I just wanna know what my chance of getting into Northwest is? And if I am able to even pick?
As a freshman, you don’t get to pick where you live unless you specify a preference for a LC. So you could end up in Northwest, but it’s really sort of just random where you’ll end up.
can freshman have a car on campus
They can, but they may not be able to have them in on-campus lots (and it will cost $$). UConn offers parking to people with 54+ credits first, then other students later in the summer or fall if all the spots aren’t filled.
But there are other places you can pay to park your car, like the Oaks on the Square garage or Farmer Brown parking, or some churches on campus sell spots as well.
I'm currently a junior in high school and I play volleyball also. When I toured UConn, the tour guide mentioned oozeball. Tell me. What is oozeball like?
Oozeball is really really awesome! It’s a one day, single-elimination mud volleyball tournament. UConn brings in a ton of mud and sets up like 10 courts that are 6 inches deep and the games go all day. Typically we get like 300 6-8 person co-ed teams playing. It’s a really great time. You get really messy and the mud can kinda level the playing field and make for some really interesting matchups. If you come here I’d definitely recommend playing! I consider it one of the things you should not graduate UConn without doing at least once.
Hi! So I'll be an incoming freshman in the fall and was wondering which LC to choose. I can't decide between Leadership and Global so, in your opinion, which is the better overall? Also, Leadership LC is in Eddie while Global House is in McMahon, which is a better living environment? Thank you!
I can’t tell you which one to pick, it really depends on your own interests and needs, so I would suggest trying to get in touch with people from those LC’s if you want information about them.
That being said, I know a lot of kids from Leadership Learning Community and they’re all top notch kids at UConn, winning awards and doing really great work. So if you’re prepared to dive in and get involved and be a leader on a large scale, and excellence and standing out is what you want to get out of college, Leadership is what I’d go with.
I meant more like could you tell me things about ecohouse that isnt on the website? Like what kind of rep it has or what type of student is involved? Thanks!
I don’t think most learning communities have any real sort of ‘rep’… it’s for people who like the environment. They do things like go to the football stadium after games and clean up trash, do little eco projects around campus, but for the most part its just a dorm for people who have similar interests and want a sense of community. I’d assume there are mostly environmental science majors or people who have similar majors, but that’s about it. If you’re really interested in learning more, you’re better off looking up who the R.A. is for eco house and trying to get in contact with them.
Do you know anything about the ecohouse at uconn? I'm a freshman signing up for housing and I think I want to go for that. Thanks!
what kind of people are in towers?
mostly underclassen. some freshmen, a lot of sophomores. a few unlucky juniors with bad pick times.
To the person who said that west corner rooms end in 01 I just wanted to send a correction. I lived in west once before and the rooms ending in 01 are simply end rooms, they are a bit larger than the other rooms but are NO where near the size of the corner rooms.Unfortunately I don't know the number for the real corner room. Good luck!!
^ and there you have it.
