But do they serve Danish?

Most US colleges I know of require that students pay for board & meal plan, unless they live at home or are married or are a certain age.
So they cram 4 students per room, and charge about as much as a normal apartment would charge in rent plus force you to buy their food.
They are guaranteed full vacancy all the time.
They are making a killing.
Yeah, it's a waste of student money.

Danes don't pay tuition for college.

It can be. Though if you're an American and one or both parents can get or have EU passports, then you pay what Danish students pay...

That looks more spacious than a place I was paying ~$750/mo for in San Diego. It had the kitchen in about the same amount of space.

This is they type of stuff that happens when you have such high tax rates that the (socialist) government has to start looking for things to piss away its tax revenue on. In other words, this is the future of the US, at least if Barack Hussein Ovomit gets re-elected.

I'm pretty sure the dorm cost no more to build than a standard US dorm that offers a lot less. Also since when is making sure students have a good place to live pissing away revenue?

Maybe in those state schools that most of you underachievers go to. But in a way it serves a function, as it gets you ready for your inevitable life in a cubicle.

Harvard mandates all students live in a dorm their first year. State schools tend to not give a shiat where you live.

I know this. I was accepted to Harvard and opted to go to USC because I wanted to stay close to home. My point remains the same though; Harvard's dorms are nothing like the sardine cans being described in the post.

"Like those state schools you underachievers go to" and saying cramming in a dorm prepares you for life in a cubicle cannot possibly be serious statements.

You're right, this is the kind of nice things we can all have with appropriate taxes for a modern society.q

One hopes not, and odds are they aren't. However, I've come across people who if not saying the same thing, it's certainly inline with their way of thinking.

That is a smart move, because Harvard also now requires all new students to have "sensitivity training" which requires them to room with a "diverse" roommate every month on a rotating schedule. My first month there, I roomed with a black guy. Month two, it was a Muslim. And month 3 it was a gay guy. That's when I dropped out and just went with the University of Phoenix. Another Socialist program from Obama, no thanks.

All rooms have a spacious suite with floor heating, toilet, and shower

Every room has its own toilet and shower? LUXURY!

Seriously, though, looks spiffy.

I went to a state school (OSU) and they had the same rule. Though I moved into an apartment after the first term and they never seemed to notice.

I went to the U of Wisconsin in Madison and they didn't care. I lived in an off campus private dorm myself.

Wow USC instead of Harvard. Uof Phoenix instead too. O.o

I like 'em; they look much friendlier than the cell-like dorm rooms I've been in (UC Berkeley).

Considering depression rates among students, I'd say a 'not prison-like' dorm room is a good monetary expenditure.

I long for the day when people stop equating "cool architecture" with "no walls and slap some primary-colored plastic in that biatch."
 
2012-07-27 02:11:23 AM  
The best dorm is the one that's cheap, doesn't leak, and doesn't leave piles of mystery meat on the floor while you sleep.

In soviet block looking dorms, the better parties throw you!
 
2012-07-27 02:15:28 AM  
well, no s--- it's new. How are you going to compare a new dorm to what most dorms are...which is 10,20,30,40 years old? Or 50, 60, 70 years old....

Look how bare bones a car like a Tercel or Escort was 20 years ago compared to a mid grade Focus etc....

I've been to this school. It's actually a pretty cool deal. Also, I bet it was built cheaper than it could be built in the US (it's concrete and cheap metal, just because it's funky looking doesn't mean it wasn't built on the cheap) and students can actually afford to go to that school.

/the classroom buildings are pretty nifty too

It looked cool, until I got to the part about 12 residences sharing a single kitchen. What do you think that sink looks like on a Saturday night?
 
2012-07-27 02:59:24 AM  
Yeah yeah, it looks cool, but the impressive part is the (pretty nice looking) 300 sq ft single rooms. God damn, I had to share a 200 sq ft shiathole with 2 other guys. And my bathroom had three stalls and two showers for 17 guys.
 
2012-07-27 03:17:43 AM  
I lived in a dorm apartment. There were three bedrooms (2 doubles and a single), a bathroom and a small kitchen. We figured it out, and we were paying about $25,000 a year to split the place, and no, this wasn't some high density city where we couldn't have done better in the private market, and it was upperclassmen only, so there was no RA being subsidized. In that area, if you could have gotten the 4 years of money together for the room half of room and board you could have pooled and gone in and bought a house outright, and figured out what to do with it when you graduated.

It's been a few years since I've been to Denmark and things may have changed but, as I recall, there weren't a lot of brothers there.

I don't think it's that big of a deal since the time you're supposed to spend in your dorm is relatively limited. Plus, Berkeley's dorms are quite old and they don't seem to be a priority as opposed to UCLA where the dorms are always being renovated. Where did you dorm? Clark Kerr is not THAT bad, but the units are definitely cell-like.
