Housing Reviews 2014: Hogan

Housing approacheth. And, unless you’re on top of it, it’s probably coming up sooner than you think. Bwog’s got you covered; we’ll be rolling out two housing reviews per day until no residence hall is left un-reviewed. Prepare to get (even more) excited: this year, we’re reviewing Barnard residence halls, too. Reviews for all! Today’s residence hall is… Hogan!

DSC_0397-1

Location: 566 W. 114th St. (though it shares an entrance with Broadway)

  • Nearby dorms: Broadway, Carman, Ruggles, all them brownstones, and it’s not too far from McBain and Watt.
  • Shops and stores: Super close to Lerner and Butler, across the streets from Amir’s, Havana, and International.  It’s a great spot since it’s close to campus but has access to the wonderful world of Broadway.

Cost: $9,076/year (same as EC, Ruggles, Watt, Woodbridge)

Amenities:

  • Bathrooms: One normal-sized bathroom per suite.
  • AC/ Heating:  No AC, but some rooms have two windows for an extra breeze.
  • Kitchen/ Lounge: Large kitchen in every suite–dishwasher and all–that comes with lots of storage space (plenty of cabinets but too few drawers). Each suite has a large lounge as well. Only some lounges have closets, but all bedroom hallways have closets.
  • Laundry: Seventh floor laundry room.
  • Computers/ Printers: Computer lab on third floor, shared with Broadway.
  • Intra-transportation: Single elevator is often commandeered by maintenance staff, but there are only 7 floors so you’ll be fine on the stairs.
  • Hardwood/ Carpet: No carpet in rooms.
  • Wi-Fi: Yes.

Room Variety:

  • Four- or five-person suites with singles that range from kinda big (~116 ft) to palace-sized (~149 ft). There’s one random 6-person suite on the seventh floor. There are no doubles in Hogan. We repeat: no doubles.
  • Each suite comes with one kitchen, one bathroom, and a spacious lounge.
  • Some rooms have two windows, but if you face Broadway, be prepared for noise.

  • This dorm is seniors only. You’ll need under ~1300 for a shot at this. Last year’s final 5 person suite went at 30/1257

Bwog Recommendation:

  • We assume you’re an all-senior group. Groups of four have the most options: if you can’t get EC townhouses, this (and Ruggles) will likely be your fallback; some will prefer Hogan for its spaciousness and proximity to Broadway. If you are in a five-person group, see what’s available on your day of Suite Selection. Good EC Highrises should be your fallback, and of course, Senior Regroup is always an option.

Resident Opinions:

  • “It’s nice having suite-style living with friends but being all in singles.”
  • “I didn’t like the aesthetics of EC, the distance and coldness.  It’s like a prison! Hogan is way warmer.”
  • “I just, like, so love it.”
  • “I love the wood floors and high ceilings.”
  • “Lack of heating control makes it really hot and uncomfortable sometimes.”
  • “Every time we play our music loud, the RA comes. So it’s not conducive to partying, though we hear parties on other floors so…”
  • “The laundry room is kinda small.”
