Maguire House (known as House 1) is a house on the East Campus area located in the shadows of East Res.
Sophomore honors students have first priority at living there, however, anyone can live there, especially considering that it’s a co-ed house.
Room sizes at Maguire are slightly bigger than at other houses, and approximately 22 students live in the house.

One of the perks of becoming a sophomore at Cabrini is that you have the option of living in the houses, which are lined up along Residential Boulevard.

“It’s always nice and clean,” Nick Cipollone, RA of Infante House, said. “It’s never too hot or too cold.”
House 3, sometimes referred to as the Infante House, is home to 20 male Cabrini students. The house provides a large living room, which also serves as a lounge for the residents. According to Cipollone, the lounge is a big hangout during the week and even on the weekends.

McManus House (House 4) is one of the residential options for female upperclassmen.

“I like the set-up better than the other houses,” resident assistant  Lilly Hatheway said, “and all of the residents are awesome.”
The kitchen and TV Lounge are several enjoyable features. Other houses this year may have had minor problems, but “we haven’t really had any major problems this year,” Hatheway said.

“I would also say to live with your friends because it is such a community, it would make it more enjoyable,” Hatheway said.

East Residence Hall is the odd man out when it comes to housing, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less desired. “East Res” as it’s commonly called is open to sophomores, but there is always room saved for the incoming freshmen, making it the only dorm building on campus open to both.

“I lived here last year…the “U’s” sort of become your family,” sophomore East resident Jillian Megna said.

The hallways, shaped like U’s, situate about 10 rooms. Requests to live in East are usually relatively high; too high for all the people making them to get in.

If you decide to live in East, make sure to scope out the room dimensions and numbers you might want before choosing housing. No matter where you live, some rooms will always be better than others.

With housing options just around the corner, juniors and seniors have the choice of living in Cabrini Apartment Complex, also known as CAC. CAC is only open to juniors and seniors and comes equipped with many amenities that normal apartments have including a full kitchen, a full living room, and multiple bathrooms.

“I think my favorite part is having a kitchen,” junior CAC resident India Haire said. “So you’re not bound to a microwave or the meals on campus, it’s nice to be able to cook yourself something nice every once in a while.”

Living in the apartments, residents have the choice of a four-person, five-person or six-person room.  The four-person apartments consist of two double bedrooms, the five-person apartments consist of two doubles and a single, and the six-person apartments consist of three double bedrooms.

“My advice for people next year is to get with at least one person you know and like. It makes everything so much easier,” Haire said.

West Residence Hall is undoubtedly one of the most popular choices for juniors and seniors to live. The co-ed dorm allows students to live in 4-person and 6-person suite apartments, just on a smaller scale than the ones seen in the Cabrini Apartment Complex.

West Res offers a kitchen as well as a study lounge on each floor, as well as a main lounge featuring a television and a pool table on the first floor. Area coordinator Mike Mullen’s office is also located in West Res, so he is easy to get a hold of in addition to the four Resident Assistants.

NEW FOR 2013: Dixon House

by Robert Riches
News Editor

After closing down in the fall of 2011 and spending all of 2012 closed down, Dixon House (otherwise known as House 2) is back up and ready to be inhabited again.

Preperations have been done over the past year-and-a-half to open Dixon’s doors back up, and it will finally open it’s doors once again in August 2013.

Dixon House is the biggest of the on-campus houses and even boasts the biggest room sizes.

Hopefully this will mean no more mold problems for good; however, the College would not re-open the doors if there was any doubt of future problems.
