    potworks is supposedly the nicer dorm and is closer to the school. rawlins is about a 20 min walk away, i believe, but most of the incoming students live there, so it's said that it's the "friendlier" of the two. i think it is fairly difficult to get a single, but not impossible. just depends on your luck and/or pestering skills.

    do a search on the forum for "rawlins vs potworks" or just "rawlins" and "potworks"


    i'd read sometime earlier that they're kicking out students from potworks after a semester - is this true? i was under the impression that students had the option of living in potworks up to med5.

    How does the housing and the arrangements work? i know we're supposed to send in all of our paperworks and stuff, but the thing is, how do we know which dorms we're gonna get?

    Minnu, as far as I know, the "studios" (glorified rooms with a sink), which are on the first floor of the building closer to the Main Road, is reserved for students new to the island. The rooms on the second floor of that building seem to be for staying students, while the building farther away from the Main Road is available to rent for continuing students.

    Thanks Conway. I just spoke with the housing director today and it seems that starting in Jan, Rawlins will be strictly double occupancy and the Potworks studios, single. le sad =(

    sxamei - they let us know (likely via email) anywhere from 2 weeks before to the day you arrive on the island.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Potworks rooms were doubled up. I know a few rooms that had two people in them, though they had been designed for one person.
