    Buchanan Hall

    We are starting to look at college options for my son. He is wanting to have a single room and I noticed Buchanan Hall has a lot of single rooms. How competitive is it for housing in Buchanan Hall?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe it's mainly for grad students.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Buchanan Hall

    I graduated in Dec. 2009, so my information may be dated.

    Single rooms in Buchanan Hall aren't impossible to come by, but Buchanan Hall is not available to freshman.

    Wallace was reopened as all single rooms when I was in school. Not sure it still is single rooms though.

    Yes I do believe that this is true.


    Also, why does your son want to live alone? Sometimes your roommate becomes your best friend. Better to socialize, than to sit in your room by yourself all day.

    I think you have to be at least a sophomore.

    To each their own but I would have really regretted living in a single my freshman year.

    I stayed there as a sophomore and it was mostly undergrads.

    Not to be blunt, but why the **** would he want a single room for his first semester?

    8th and 9th floors of Buchanan Hall are reserved for grad students and student 21+. The other 7 floors are open.

    I currently live in Buchanan Hall. I have never lived in a single room, but I think they fill up pretty quickly. But students sign up for rooms and then change their assignment all the time. So they could be open at anytime.

    Agree with this statement. Though my roommate and I didn't hardly talk because we had nothing in common. Still better than living alone.

    Used to be all grad students but I think this changed a while back.

    Honestly, if I ever lived in a single in Buchanan, it would encourage me to get out more.

    I wasn't great friends with my first roommate either. Still a good experience.

    If you are going to be getting out anyways, why not live where there's the option of your roommate you will know and/or a bunch of other like minded people?

    Before he settles in on a single, have him check out all his options. Greek system, dorms, apartments, etc.

    He has a lot of anxiety issues. I won't go into it any further. He will be 19 and thus eligible according to the ISU website.
