I hate living in Henley (91). I'm a summer student and I'm glad I move out in a week. We have a serious roach problem that spraying isn't helping. Almost everything in the bathroom has broken and we've had to get it fixed. The lighting is terrible and I think making my eyes even worse. The showers are smaller than ones I've used in Europe. Everything in the apartment was dirty when we moved in and all the furniture feels wet because of the humidity. The only bright side has been that the burners on the stove heat up really fast. Worst dorm ever.

I am doing this for fun to check out this site, but this is a legitimate review. I lived in Henle 23 in 1998-99. I was the housemate of the Apartment Assistant for that portion of Henle. I know many things have changed since I lived there, but I will still give my two cents. 1) If you have an internship or job off campus, Henle is incredibly convenient to the GUTS buses. 2) Henle is a good location for student leaders who have storage space or meeting space in the Leavey Center. 3) It rather cool and shady on that side of campus. 4) The buildings themselves look pretty nice and not as fresh-out-the-70s as Village A does. Although it does have a Sesame Street-looking quality to it. As for more modern complains like mice -- my building didn't have that problem. And I can't even begin to talk about the party registration process, because we didn't have that to the extent that the current students do. Yes, having an early morning class all the way in Walsh was the PITS. But not impossible.

Henle (or at least my Henle apartment) is falling apart. I have had multiple things break including the heater, a leak in the shower that caused mold to grow in the room on the other side of the shower, and mice. Eeek! It needs renovations and the bedrooms are too small. Henle was poorly designed, it makes poor use of space as the courtyards are large but the apartments themselves, mainly the bedrooms are far too small.

I lived in Henle only for one semester because I went abroad for the second half of my junior year, but I really loved it while I was there, despite its problems. The thing about Henle is that the quality of the apartment varies widely depending on which apartment you get. My apartment (Henle 59) was a the top one in my unit, NOT located in the fishbowl, had great sunlight, and a pretty nice view. Getting to the top of Henle is quite a trek sometimes with all the stairs, but it gets you really fit (but makes move-in and move-out pretty bad, I have to admit). One obvious drawback is that Henle does have mice, and it's a pretty serious issue. I lived at the top of three apartments, and they still made it up to our floor by October or November. We kept the place clean so we didn't have too many problems with them, but we did see them scurrying around periodically and caught a few (in traps we had to buy ourselves, because the university only provides glue traps which get them stuck but don't kill them). Other than that, Henle is the only place on campus suitable for 5 people, which can be a random number to fill, but it was exactly what we needed so it was perfect for us. The Henles can range a bit in size; ours was 789 sq ft, so we had a very big kitchen and living room area for a university apartment. The bedrooms weren't particularly large, especially the single, but the weren't too small either. We didn't use our space for parties, but it is definitely a possibility. The bathroom has two sinks, two showers, and one toilet, so we never had a problem sharing that space. One thing people fear living in Henle is that it is really far away from everything, but the opposite is true; it's actually closer to most classroom buildings (except Walsh and Carbarn) and the walk to class is down stairs/downhill, making it possible to get to ICC and Copley in about 3 minutes. It is also right next to the Leavey Center, which is nice when you don't feel like making it all the way to Leo's, which is pretty far when you live in Henle. Sellinger is also a good, close alternative to Lau when you live in Henle, though the trip to the library is under 10 minutes still (somewhat far by Georgetown standards, but really not that bad when you think about it). There are some drawbacks to living in Henle, especially if you are a sophomore and only have the less great ones available to choose from, but having an apartment is a really great experience that I highly recommend, and Henle really is a good place to live.

5 people to every apartment, which has two doubles and a single; a bathroom with one toilet, a shower, and two sinks (some have 2 showers, as mine did); a living area; and a full kitchen. Like living on your own, but still on campus. A lot of parties happen here, and don't get broken up very often.

Living in Henle as a sophomore is awesome!I loved having my own apartment with my own kitchen and bathroom. The rooms aren't big and the location isn't great, but it's a fair trade-off for being able to live in an apartment your sophomore year.

Really old and run down, but our apartment is fairly sized in the common areas. The single, however, is the tiniest room ever. Having to register parties and going through the whole process is overrated.

Henle's location is OK, very close to the MSB and Leavey Center, but kind of far from Lau and Leo's. Georgetown is a very small campus though so nothing is truly that far. The apartments are reasonably sized, while the bedrooms are pretty small. Mice are a common occurrence, though not as big a deal as many make it. There are about 5 RA's for all of Henle, with strictness depending on the RA.
