Living in the lap of luxury
Although Cambridge House no
longer has maids or room service,
the residence hall still offers stu-
dents a bit of hotel luxury unavail-
able elsewhere on campus.
The hall's 110 students enjoy pri-
vate bathrooms and carpeting.
That's why Cambridge House,
attached to the Michigan Union and
West Quad, is the most expensive
residence hall on campus, Univer-
sity Housing spokesman Alan Levy
For the first 60 years of its exis-
tence, Cambridge House was part
of the Michigan Union Hotel, Levy.
After the hotel closed in 1979
the University decided to turn the
building into a residence hall.
Room and board in a deluxe sin-
gle at Cambridge cost $10,692.00
this past school year, while a smaller
traditional single cost $10,332.
The cheapest residence hall is
Fletcher Hall. Room and board at
the dorm cost $6,442 for students
livingin triple rooms this year.
Although next year's rates for
next year will not be submitted to
the University Board of Regents
until next month, a proposal origi-
nally slated for consideration at last
week's regents meeting would have
increased the price of room and
board in Cambridge House by more
than $400 per year.
Freshmen are currently restrict-
ed from living in Cambridge House.
Starting this year, students from
all residence halls on campus were
given equal opportunity to live in
the dorm. West Quad residents were
previously given priority.
College of Engineering sopho-
more Michael Tobinlives in a deluxe
single room in Cambridge. Although
he plans to move off-campus next
year, he said he has enjoyed living
in Cambridge because of his ample
space and private bathroom.
"It's nice because you don't have
to walk down the hall when you
want to take a shower," he said.
LSA sophomore Ed Kramkowski-
said he likes living in his double
room in Cambridge because of the
hall's location. Last year, he lived in
Baits Hall on North Campus, which
was cheaper but more isolated.
Kramkowski said Cambridge
Hall is also quieter than Baits was.
The hallways in Cambridge
House were nearly silent yesterday
afternoon. Few students left their
doors open. Tobin said living in
Cambridge has drawbacks, though
he enjoys the hall's privacy and
"You don't see your hallmates
that much," Tobin said. "If you're
looking to become best friends with
the kids that live on your hall, you
probably shouldn't live here."
LSA sophomore Ed Kramkowski stands outside his double
room in Cambridge House. Room and board in Cambridge
doubles cost between $8,744 and $9,866 per school year.
