Bwog recommendations:

Ruggles is a great place to live if you have a group that you don’t mind sharing your facilities with. Living in Ruggles also requires cleaning your own kitchen and bathroom. Overall, it seems like a wonderful place to live with a group of friends. The rooms are decently-sized, and there is still privacy within a suite. Also, the floors are great.
