- Not incredibly difficult to get if you’re a senior who wants to live in a single.
- If you’re a junior, you might try your luck at a double, but all Sulz Tower singles have gone to seniors in the past.
- In the 2020 housing lottery, the cut-offs for Sulz Tower singles was 300/100. The seniors with the lowest lottery numbers in the SR123 were number 300/117. This meant that most seniors who wanted a Sulz Tower single, got one.
- The cut-offs for Sulz Tower doubles were 100/270, which was one of the first few rising-sophomore groups to choose.
If proximity to campus is high on your list, Sulz Tower is a great place to be, due to its location in the Quad. Views from the Tower are amazing, particularly from the lounge which has two windows each. In comparison to Hewitt, a resident said “As for the rooms, I found them pretty much the same as my Hewitt room last year, but with a better view. The bathrooms are definitely cleaner and the showers more functional than Hewitt’s.” While it lacks the true suite-style feeling, Sulz Tower is a great option for seniors who want to stick close to campus and have a gorgeous view.
- “I went in with a friend, and it was great having someone I know on my floor.”
- “The rooms are pretty small and it’s annoying to have to share a bathroom with 15 other people, but I really liked the mixture of living in a single and getting to share a nice kitchen with 7 other people.”
- “Air conditioning is always nice!”
- “Can’t beat the location, convenience-wise.”
- “The views are beautiful — even facing north had lovely views of the campus and really nice sunsets.”
- “Room sizes are variable so you may get stuck with a small room, but if you get a view facing the Hudson, it’s amazing and totally worth it.”
