Bwog Recommendations:

If you have sold your soul to the devil (read: you are a senior with a good lottery number), Hogan is the place for you! The amenities of both Hogan and Broadway are available to you, and you’re close to campus but still have your own suite to sprawl out in.



  • 4-Person Suites: 30/1292 (2018-19), 30/1812 (2017-8)
  • 2 in 4 Person Suite w/ RA: 30/2423 (2018-9), 30/1811 (2017-8)
  • 5-Person Suites: 30/1534 (2018-9), 30/2189 (2017-8)
  • 4 in 6 Person Suite w/RA: 30/1499 (2018-9), 30/1864 (2017-2018)


Resident opinions:

“Rooms are a pretty good size but definitely vary within your suite. (I lived in the RA room so it was pretty big and amazing, but my friend lived in a much smaller room. More similar to a Broadway single.  My suitemates had room sizes in between).”

“High ceilings: if you aren’t facing a wall you can get some good light.”

“Don’t trust the dishwasher.”

“Toilets are weirdly short. I don’t really know why.”

“Big communal closets for storage!”
