Oct 2019: Probably one of the best on-campus living experiences I've had so far. I transferred schools and there wasn't nearly as many programs and events like they have here at Chisholm. I appreciate that Robert the hall director is always available when I need him. Review from Google
Oct 2019: Chisholm is a good first start being away from my hometown. LOTS OF PROGRAMS and free food. Got a free t-shirt as soon as i got here too. Lots of friendly people. some not so much. RA julles is very helpful and pretty much answers any question I have. id recommend Chis to others. Review from Google
Oct 2019: Honestly the environment around here in Chisholm is amazing. I was hesitant at first but my RAs made living here 1000x better. The rooms are in good condition and there’s a lot of fun activities always going on around this dorm complex. Brianna Carter is so far my favorite RA she reaches out to us a lot and is always willing to help us. She’s super outgoing and you’ll never see her without a smile. Review from Google
Oct 2019: The best thing about Chisholm is my RA Brianna. She’s honestly the sweetest and so informative about resources and where things are around campus and has been super helpful! As for Chisholm itself, it’s extremely close to the roadrunner cafe and I like that the bathrooms are in the room and only me and my roommate have to share one. Review from Google
Oct 2019: Chisholm Hall could be better, there is always dust on the floors and the laundry rooms are gross no matter how many times the RA's or I clean them. However, the few residents I've met more than make up for it with their warm smiles and welcoming attitudes. The person who makes me feel most welcomed is RA Lydia, who always has a big smile and tries to say hi when she sees me. She always has a joke - which may not actually be funny, but she tries. Review from Google
Jul 2019: If I could give this place 0 stars I definitely would. I stayed here for my Freshman year and it was the worst experience I’ve ever had. The firealarm would go off for no reason, and it would be at 2am or 6am sometimes. There is only one kitchen in the whole building and it is filthy. The WiFi is not password protected and anyone can get on it. Which made the signal very weak. When you get into the room the floor and sinks are dirty already. Even though I noted all of this when I first moved in, I was still fined for the room being dirty despite cleaning it to the best of my ability. The rooms use actual keys which can be easily lost instead of using your school ID like all other dorms. When you lose your key you have to pay them $50 to give you a new one. The payment system for this dorm is not connected to the school so you have to manually make the payments every month. They only have two washers and dryers and you have to pay $1 Review from Google
Jun 2019: I wish I could give this place 0 stars. This is the only prison cell you have to pay rent for. On top of a lackluster room, the workers also flooded our room twice this year while doing "maintenance" on our toilet that never worked all school year. Instead of contacting us or replacing our damaged items they tried to charge for "damages" and "cleaning". DO NOT LIVE HERE Review from Google
Apr 2019: It’s alright I lived On the fourth floor had 0 pestproblems besides that it’s a cheap rate. The firealarms do go off but after a while it becomes whatever. The staff was always nice to me when I had A problem and tried to fix it. Review from Google
Apr 2019: Honestly, don't live here unless you have to. It's the cheapest dorm on campus for a reason. The firealarms repeatedly go off, the wifi is almost never working, washer & dryers break and take forever to get fixed, there's mold on the windows, ceiling tiles are falling off, etc. Review from Google
Mar 2019: I lived here a few years back 2015-2016 and honestly don't know what everybody is complaining about. The alarmswent off every once in a while but it was a pretty OK place to live Review from Google
Nov 2018: ***LONG AND DETAILED REVIEW BELOW***
Living on campus at a University will always have ups and downs, you're going to have to sacrifice some things for others, and deal with a lot of stuff (which is how it is at every dorm at every University.)
Chisholm Hall Pros: I live in a single deluxe room and it is HUGE. I have a queen sized bed, my own bathroom, and enough room to have over guests without feeling claustrophobic. The room comes with the bed, headboard, dresser, night stand and a long desk (with 6 drawers) that is mounted into the wall. (I will attach photos). You are able to keep a fridge and a microwave and a toaster oven in your dorm as well, which makes snacking/easy cooking really convenient. There is a lot of storage, I have two closets, 4 drawers and 4 cabinets in the bathroom area, a 5-drawer dresser, 2 drawer night stand a 6 d Review from Google
Nov 2018: I had seen reviews of this place before I made a decision to move in. The firealarms I can forgive. The overall presentation of the building and its interior I can forgive. The horrendously bad internet speeds, I can forgive.
One major issue is that aside from the front (and possibly back?) entrance, all the automatic locks do not function, and anyone can enter.
The RAs I have met were all great people and accommodating to needs. The residents are all more or less awesome as well.
The nail in the coffin, and the reason the rating is as low as it is, is that latefees will NOT be waived, no matter the circumstance. Not only did I attempt to contact a week prior to the payment and explain why I was going to be late, it appears that the email went ignored. No attempt whatsoever to negotiate. It took me calling the office of the person Review from Google
Sep 2018: Chisholm is amazing! I love the Resident Assistants! I order so many packages and they are all so nice in assisting me! Review from Google
Aug 2018: This is going to be my third year living at Chisholm Hall! I've always enjoyed how big the rooms are, I've always had a single room and I think it's definitely worth it. I specially love the big, open windows for my plants! There's enough room for all my things and I love that the building is like a minute away from the roadrunner cafe, makes being lazy easier! It only takes like 10 minutes to walk to my class so I can sleep in most mornings :) PLUS the RAs are always hosting funevents with free food where we play video games or watch movies so that's pretty cool! Review from Google
Aug 2018: Chisholm is love. Chisholm is life. Your experience here is what you make it. The staff here really try their best to make sure everything is fine.If you want to live on campus, this is the place to be a part of a community that you will remember for a lifetime. I would give Chisholm 100 stars if I could! Review from Google
Apr 2018: This place is the worst. The only plus is the big room and in-room bathroom. Every other thing that you think could go wrong WILL GO WRONG. Firealarm goes off once or twice a week, mostly in the middle of the night. You will be living off of LTE because WiFi on phones never work. You have to pay for laundry and the laundry machines are usually broken or flooded. The place looks like an asylum and the walls are paperthin. The fourth floor(where I stayed) leaked throughout the year, destroying my new rented text books. I suggest spending the extra money and love anywhere else. Take our word for it. Would give it zero stars if I could Review from Google
Mar 2018: My honest opinion is that there are better places to live for around the same price. It's an old building, you have to pay for laundry, the wifi barely worked and if it did it was super slow, the locks on the doors to the building weren't always locked so I never really felt safe, our room flooded multiple times due to leaks in the ceiling, the building over all is dirty and smells pretty bad, the firealarm goes off twice a week or more even at 2:00 in the morning. Its notawful if its the only choice you have, if you're stuck living here some pros are that the students and RA's are really nice and the rooms are really big, and its close to the cafe and the 15-20 minuet walk to campus isn'tbad at all. I recommend bringing a lot of decorations so it doesn't feel like a prison:) Review from Google
Mar 2018: Bigwaste of money. Firealarms at 3am and leaks in dorms. Stay away...I promise you'll find better. Review from Google
Feb 2018: do not bother living here. It is the worst experience. It smells 24/7, the firealarmsgo off every few days. Too expensive for the quality of living, very dirty and old building. Review from Google
Jan 2018: This is a place for new people to connect on campus. I recommend Chisholm Hall! Review from Google
Jan 2018: Currently a resident here. The RA's are super duper nice and friendly. They make you feel at home. Sure it's an ol' building but that's what I like about it to be honest. The room is bigger and has more space than I know what to do with. The only negative thing I have to say about this complex is the very sensitive alarm, as it goes off rather frequently, maybe 3 times a month usually. Other than that, five stars! Review from Google
Jan 2018: If anyone is looking for a good place to live please give second thoughts about living here. I moved into a single deluxe room, and with the amount of money I put in EVERY month doesn't amount to the quality that the room has. The internet is a nightmare. There have been times where I want to tear my hair out because it goes down for ~30min-1hr, and this would be understandable if it was once a month or something but every day is no excuse. I'd much rather have moved into Alvarez or an apartment close by, or simply sleep outside with the bed I have in the dorm because that's what it feels like I'm paying for. Review from Google
Dec 2017: I share a room with someone. The room is a decent size, but you do need to adjust to sharing one room. Aside from that I'd say it's too overpriced ($399.00 for a 12 month lease) for the quality. The room comes with a twin bed, a lamp, a dresser and a nightstand. There's always some trash on the stairways, each floor has only one laundry room, it would be nice if there were a water fountain on each floor, but there's only one on the first floor. The firealarm goes off once or twice a month in the middle of the night which is inconvenient to say the least. Also, entrances into the dorm halls are usually unlocked 24/7 from my experience. I mean I don't even need my card to get in most of the time. There is a vending machine on the first floor that sells Dr Pepper so that's a plus. Review from Google
Nov 2017: This place is awful if I could give it zero stars I would. The people in charge have horrible service and are always grouchy. The price is crazy for the quality. It is always dirty and smellsawful 24/7.Please do yourself or your kid a favor and do not lease from here. Its a horrible place to stay!! Review from Google
May 2017: The hallways, stairs, and laundry room (so pretty much the whole building) are frequently filled with garbage. Janitorial services sometimes cleaned once a month or at least noticeably cleaned areas. Not to mention as a first year student the physical dorm was terrible windows would leak after rain, ants would come in the room, lights frequently didnt work, ac went out for long periods of time, furniture was rickety, mildew in the shower from horrible ventilation. Also there were rumors among occupants that there were bedbugs in some dorms.
