What are the top-tier HBCU dorm experiences?

I'm trying to gauge what dorm life is like at different HBCUs, since it's likely going to be my home away from home for a few years. Any juniors or seniors care to share which HBCUs have the best dorm facilities, in terms of comfort, amenities, or just an overall great atmosphere?

Hi there! Dorm life at Spelman College is often touted by students. They report that the rooms are quite comfortable and the living quarters are well maintained. As for amenities, there is access to good laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, and common areas where students can study or just hang out with friends. Plus, there's a strong sense of community, which can really help you feel at home and make the transition to college life easier.

That being said, I've heard that Howard University has recently renovated their dorms, and students seem to be enjoying the upgrades. Morehouse College also has some newer residence halls that offer modern amenities. I recommend taking a campus tour, if possible, to see the dorms for yourself and talk to current students about their experiences. It’s the best way to get a feel for the place and see if you can envision yourself there. Best of luck finding your new home away from home!
