Best College Values names the 30 most luxurious student housing buildings

COLUMBUS, OH -

This is a news release from Best College Values   

Best College Values has released a list ranking the 30 Most Luxurious Student Housing buildings. Every campus promotes their living quarters but this list highlights 30 fantastic campus housing options from around the country that go above and beyond the norm. To create this list, we looked at cost and student experience, but we were primarily looking for incredible amenities.

The full ranking: http://www.bestcollegevalues.org/best-college-dorms/

Mackenzi Flannery, the article's author, had this to say: "Dorm life is a massive part of the on-campus experience. These 30 buildings are providing a once in a lifetime experience for these students. We've been seeing a trend in the number of schools spending money on luxury to lure in students, and in response students are showing a willingness to pay for a cushy living experience. Our goal in showcasing these student housing options was to weigh the costs with the perks, and assess the value of this extra expense during your academic career. Some housing options were no different, and in some cases even cheaper, than other dorm buildings, which makes them much more valuable of a living experience."
