Room Variety:

  • Modified corridor style
  • 96 singles for seniors only (13 feet x 9 feet)
  • 14 large doubles (16 feet x 13 feet)


  • 124 upper-class students, primarily seniors.
  • 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.

Bwog Recommendation:

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.

Resident Opinions

  • “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.”
