Living in LXR is almost like living off campus in a regular apartment building-- if all the rooms were studios and the air conditioning system confused the seasons. (Prepare for refreshing cool air in December and steam in September.) As an older building, LXR has regular maintenance issues, including mice. The common space, however, provides ample room for cooking and studying. Neighbors interact less than in a freshmen dorm (LXR is for sophomores and juniors) but are less destructive and noisy. Overall, a great place to live.

Not bad, if you have to be living in a dorm.

LXR is an okay dorm. You don't get your own bathroom like in some of the other dorm-style rooms, and you certainly don't have a kitchen or a living area like in the on campus apartments, but it is clean and livable. The biggest perk is probably the location. You are a block from M St. and a block from the library and the main campus. There are a lot of athletes who live here. The staff is pretty nice. As far as living in a dorm past sophomore year, if you have to do it, LXR isn't a terrible place. That being said, I understand the rooms are of somewhat variable size and mine seems to be on the larger end - comfortable enough for us to have room to walk around without having to bunk our beds or anything like that.

One can get past the long walk to campus but this building is so outdated that we don't have wireless and we lose electricity/hot water on a regular basis.

Bathrooms are often gross. RAs are nice. It's a little far with regards to Georgetown dorms but the walk isn't nearly as bad as at larger schools.

LXR is a good dorm if you want to live a quiet life and have little interaction with your other friends around campus.
