Is a Single Room Worth it?

Compared to a double/triple/quad or a bunk & loft?

erm why would you get a suite anyway, if you can't cook? It'd be a lot less trouble living in traditional, since you won't have to worry about learning how to cook as well as studying and all that. Unless of course you get a meal plan and live in a suite, which would def. be a waste on money.

Bates is... nice. When you walk in, it looks like a swimming pool lol. The big towering blue walls. haha.

Each room comes with a common room and kitchen. So you'll still need to learn how to cook if you want to save money since apartment style is more expensive.

Best traditional style is Les Prince. It's the newest and every room comes with a bathroom. It's also one of the hardest to get into.

What are other well liked traditional residences? I saw Brandon and it looked alright but seemed to be secluded at the far end of campus.


The residence buildings are set up in two clumps they're all roughly the same distance away from classes so its really a nonissue

I didn't go to university at McMaster, but personally a single room was awesome for me. I was still in the middle of all of the action and fun at rez, but when I needed to retire to do homework or sleep I could do so whenever I wanted. Sure, it was a few extra dollars, but the fact that I did so well academically meant I kept my scholarship- which more than payed for the difference. Of course, some people really had a great time with their roommates, but in the end I think you can still get just as close to people without having to live with them. Just my opinion.
