Overall very nice but the rooms could be better lit. Also, the fire alarms go off when you cook. There should be more places to bake and I don't understand why the laundry room is past the turnstiles. The living rooms are nice though and it is very convient.

Charles Commons is beeeeeeeeyootiful. It's definitely like living in your own apartment/a nice hotel. It's not very social, but who cares? Every four person suite has a fridge and stove, two bathrooms and a nice spacious common room. It is the most expensive option but it's definitely worth it in my opinion.

Charles Commons is a gem in terms of dorms! Aparment-style suites, only a few years old. Only downfall is that the dorm is not as social as those your freshman year.

Overall it's pretty nice. I don't think it's a super social place, though, because I still don't know most of the people on my floor.

Charles Commons is by far the nicest and most convenient dorm for upperclassmen.

Really great place to stay. Rooms are tiny but there's a living room where everyone can hang out. One thing I hate is the tiny windows - not much natural light - and the fact that I'm right above a pub outside. It gets super noisy, even on weeknights at 3am. Other than that, a great environment.

Charles Commons was a great place to live. I loved having a single room and my own bathroom and kitchenette. It was the perfect study environment and a great place to come home to after a long day of classes. One downside, was that it was a quieter building. The social scene was not as easy as the freshman year dorms, but I still really enjoyed my time here.

An extremely new and clean building. All units feature single bedrooms and a bathroom for every 2 people. All 4 person and some 2 person units have a living room in addition to the spacious kitchen provided in every unit.
