The 2008 Housing Lottery: Your Best Mistake Ever!

Written by

From Woodridge to Wien, we’ve covered a lot of ground already. But we’ve got to maintain a steady pace if we’re going to reach McBain by suite selection.



With recent renovations in all eight-person suites and upcoming summer renovations for the four-person suites, Ruggles is quickly departing from completely carpeted floors and cramped kitchens of yore. Most eight-person suites have two singles and three doubles, while two lucky groups of eight can snatch up suites on the fourth and sixth floors that have four singles and two doubles; four-person suites are usually only available to senior groups.

With an expanded common area down the hall from the suite’s entrance, Ruggles is a decent venue for any kind of exploits that might irk your friendly (or not so friendly) neighborhood RA. And with the building located near Amsterdam on 114th, situated near the frats, Ruggles allows for quick access to campus. In regards to cheap food, Strokos is literally next-door and HamDel and Roti Roll are in short walking distance. All-in-all, there’s not much to complain about, except for maybe the thin walls adjoining suites. If you’re not careful, you might be kept awaken by some late night techno, courtesy of the soccer players one suite over.

    If you live in an unrenovated Ruggle suite like I do, your room key works in the locks of your suitemate's doors.

    Thanks, CU housing!
