I picked to live in Norton House as part of my E&I Scholars program. We were are first a little underwhelmed with the building and room, but after some time, it's turned out to a fantastic decision. Norton is located on North Campus, which I think is the better half of campus. For food there are definitely less choices close by when compared to South Campus, but it really isn't the end of the world. Traditions at Scott, the best of the 3 dining halls, is the building next to Norton. Curl Market is a short walk, Connecting Grounds and Juice 2 are also literally right next door, the Rohr Cafe is super close, and there's also a bunch of other coffee shops on the more Northern part of the campus area that are easily accessible, like the KSA Cafe, Terra Byte Cafe, and the Campus Grind. For gyms, the North Rec and JO North are right by Norton. If you're a business student, Norton is great because you're right next to the Fisher College of Business. Norton is also great for all students, because it's much closer to most classroom buildings than any South Campus dorm. As for the actual building, I don't have any major complaints. Everyone in Norton has their own bathroom, which is pretty great, and not common on campus. The building itself has a lobby study room and a private study room, but not many other amenities. We're apart of this thing called the MNS (Mendoza-Norton-Scott) Complex, because our buildings are small enough that they don't need different amenities for each dorm. This means that our kitchen, front desk, and package pickup is at Scott, which is a little annoying, but really isn't the end of the world, it's only like a 20 second walk. We only have 4 washers and 4 dryers, which I would say is enough for the size of this building, but just barely. I sometimes find myself bringing my laundry over to the Scott laundry room so I don't have to wait for ours to clear up. Overall I would give the Norton experience 4.5/5 stars. One of my roommates and I are planning on trying to live in this building again next year. It definitely isn't perfect, but as far as dorms go, its a very solid option.

Old outdated building and too many students crammed into one room with insufficient space and quality for the pricing. The AC did not work and no maintenance took care of it. Laundry room had only 4 washers and 4 dryers which all four floors had to share and some did not work.

Norton staff was really nice and helpful if you needed anything. But the dorms are pretty old so the bathrooms weren't the nicest. Also, the laundry room is in the basement so having to use the stairs was annoying but there is an elevator just the stairs can be quicker. Also, sometimes dryers or washers were not working so you had to wait or just go back with wet clothes. But other than that okay dorm.

I think it is a pretty nice dorm. It is kind of old and the walls are weird but Its not that bad when you get used to it. It was kind of dirty at first but once you pack your things in and add your decorations it looks much better.
