Ok, I guess I'm probably late with my reply about student housing at Willamette but if you still consider obtaining a student housing, although it may be too late, my answer will help you. During the first semester at WUCL, I lived in Haseldorf. The place was absolutely crappy and sometimes the hallway smelled like piss. Ok, I didn't mind that too much honestly but two other things really bothered me. First, the residents (some crazyass undergrad mofos) who lived right above me were always throwing parties, yelling, and ashing their pipes by the window. The problem was that wall and ceiling were too thin and my complaints did not really help. The wall is too thin that I can hear the guy above me talking on the cellphone, walking around, taking a piss, and sighing about his sorryass midterm grades. Also, when the weather was warm, I had problems with flies coming into my apartment. The place doesn't have a screen window so I went to Home Depot and installed screens myself later to find out the flies were coming in from a crack hole on the wall. This place really drove me insane. Unable to deal with anymore drama with the apartment, I moved to UAP before the second semester although there was about $250 to $300 difference in the monthly rent. It was the best decision I've ever made in my law school career so far. My grades improved and my mental health is recovered. In conclusion, my advice to you is to find a decent place whether it's on campus or off campus where it's quite and good enough for you to enjoy yourself while dealing with the stress from law school.
