The "Economy Double" Room

A photo of megsoleil megsoleil
I am sure that many of the larger universities have begun to give students the option of "economy double" to make the much-needed spaces in residence.

It looks like quite an attractive option, at half the cost of usual room and board, however the rooms seem rather crammed, compared to regular doubles or singles.

Has anyone experienced the econo double? Or do you have any thoughs on which is a better option for first years?

It seems like a terrible idea, in my opinion, unless you're really desperate to save money. Seriously though, have you seen how small a single room is in most universities? Now imagine fitting 2 people and all of their stuff in there. I don't know, maybe it's just me... I'm kind of a princess lol. But personally I would never want to have an economy double.
