I have enjoyed living in Kennedy because of the spacious rooms and its great location on campus. My only complaint is that the facilities (most notably the hot water) seem to be out of service a lot which is surprising since the building was constructed within the last ten years.

A pretty typical college dorm. Nice shelving unit. Don't have my own bathroom though.

I have a nice spacious room as it is on the corner and is a bit bigger than most of the rooms in the building. The building is very new and kept very clean by the facilities staff every day during the week. It is as close as you can get to the dining hall but it is far away from a few key academic buildings. There are plenty of places to plug things in and there are 2 ethernet outlets in addition to the wireless. There is also plenty of storage, little vanity-type areas with mirrors, and a nice spot for a tv/steroe/game system.

Love the location and size of the rooms! Just wish the upperclassmen residence halls were as social and friendly as the Freshmen ones!

You do not have your own bathroom, which can be a struggle. However, everything is new and in good condition so there are few problems with everything breaking.

Kennedy is a great place to live, especially as a sophomore because most of the Quad is filled with sophomores. The building was built in the early 2000s, so everything is modern and very appealing to the eye. The elevators have mirrors on the ceiling and work very fast, the kitchens have new equipment, and the bathrooms are modern also. The cleaning people do a very good job, cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen every weekday; on the weekends the bathroom can get a little messy but you only have to tolerate it for a little while. In addition to the very spacious common room with full kitchen (which overlooks the Potomac if you are on one of the higher floors, or the quad lawn if you are lower), there are two study rooms on each floor also, one with cubicles and one with a meeting-style table for group work. The floors have a mix of doubles and singles, holding less than 50 people in total I believe. There are four bathrooms on the floor, each with two showers and two toilets, but I never had to wait to use them. Kennedy is pretty central, making it very close to the gym, dining hall, Alumni Lounge in Village C West, and the ICC in particular. Hoya Snaxa is also about 15 feet from the door of Kennedy, which makes late-night snack runs much easier than in other dorms. One drawback is that Kennedy is the lowest point on campus, so going anywhere other than Leo's is a trek uphill. By your second year at Georgetown you should be used to the hills though, and it's really not that bad (use it as an excuse to take the elevator or skip the gym every so often). The quad is home to three Living and Learning Communities: Living Well is in Kennedy, Justice and Diversity in Action in McCarthy, and Culture and Performance in Reynolds. All three buildings in the quad are the same in almost all respects, except you have to walk outside briefly to get from the Reynolds lobby over to Kennedy and McCarthy (where the laundry facilities are). The quad is an overall very nice choice for housing if you are looking for spacious and modern doubles of singles. And did I mention it's the only university housing currently with wireless internet?
