Nearby dorms: Across the street from Symposium and McBain. Around the block from Broadway and Hogan.
Stores and restaurants: All the same locations as McBain and Nussbaum—you’ve got the best of Broadway at your disposal. Milano, Nussbaum & Wu, and International are all a 30-second walk. And they’re all it takes to survive.
$8,324 (same as EC, Ruggles, Hogan, Woodbridge) but worth every penny.
Bathrooms: Private bathrooms in each single/double.
AC/Heating: No AC, but many suites have multiple windows so it is possible to create great airflow. Erratic heating due to the building’s old age.
Kitchen/Lounge: Full kitchen in each single/double. Amazing!
Laundry: One dryer and washer on each floor.
Computers/Printers: A printer was installed in the lobby this year.
Gym: No gym.
Intra-transportation: The world’s slowest elevator and stairs.
Studio singles and studio doubles.
1- and 2-bedroom doubles.
Basically some of the best Housing has to offer.
Studio doubles go to mostly Juniors, and maybe a few lucky Sophomores. That may change due to junior regroup this year, though.
Studio singles go to very lucky Seniors.
1-bedrooms go to lucky Juniors.
2-bedrooms go to lucky Seniors.
Rising Juniors looking for a double should think of Watt as their first choice.
The singles and 2-bedrooms are amazing options for rising Seniors.
“The rooms are really hard to beat. All have kitchens and bathrooms within them; really big fridges, stoves, lots of storage space.”
“Best washer/dryer arrangement on campus.”
“The building is an old apartment building, so it’s got a cool, rustic look and feel. People say that the hardwood floors are scuffed in a cool way, and it feels lived-in and homely.”
“Roof access is awesome. Real live bathrooms with tile and everything, like a real life home.”
“It is not very social. At all. Because the bathrooms/kitchens are within the rooms, you never really run into anyone else on your floor (I couldn’t recognize most of my neighbors at a police lineup). Also, there are no lounges and TVs.”
“There is one elevator, and it’s one of those super old ones that feels like it’s from the Civil War because you have to pull open a door to use it. I’m pretty sure I can walk up the stairs faster than it travels, but it’s a bummer because you have to use it to go to the basement to throw out your trash like in Claremont.”
“I think I have an RA, but I’m not really sure. Sometimes people try to organize events (Watt is part of the Block thing) but no one really goes to them I don’t think.”
“Delivery people like to buzz you with the intercom (if it still works) but you can’t answer back so they just hold the button down.”
