Dorms For Freshmen

NOTE: i'm an incoming freshman:)

uhm..i made this new thread kasi i'm still contemplating on the fact na dahil hindi ako taga-QC, there is this need for a DORM..

just the thought itself makes me shiver:(*ignorance/excitement/whatsoever

i've never been away from home since the ..er.. dawn of my consciousness, kaya super kabado ako..

and to, at least relieve the anxiety, may i ask from you helpful iskos/iskas helpful tips, etc. about how "dorm" life goes..

pede rin *** denominations for a year, experiences ( good or bad), and or/or kung say..ILAN PER ROOM.. ang students..

tnx!:naughty::rotflmao:

  • Kalayaan Residence Hall a.k.a Kalai is the dorm for freshmen.

    -Coed (There's a male wing and female wing. Common areas are lobby, TV area, basketball and volleyball courts and mess hall.)
    -Two in a room with study tables, chairs, beds, mattresses, closet, and bookshelves. Bring your own pillow, pillow case, bedsheet and blanket.
    -Showers and toilets are communal. 4 shower stalls and 4 toilet stalls per floor.
    -Serves meals 3x a day expect for Sundays. (Not sure if it's still Gloria's who's incharge of the mess hall.) Bring your own glass/mug and spoon and fork.
    -Curfew is 9 pm. (I don't know if it's already changed.) There's a daily bedcheck. Residents must be at their respective rooms during bedcheck. Residents can apply for late night or overnight permit but approval is upon discretion of the dorm manager and according to parent's/guardian's instruction form.

    Tinatamad pa akong i-share ang Kalai experience ko. Next time na lang. For questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    To have an idea about Kalai life, listen to Eraserhead's 'Minsan (Sa May Kalayaan)'.
  • tinatamad = in other words, "too many to mention" :lol: (parang slambook lang hahaha)

    masaya kasi sa Kalai, kelangan pa ni third ng buwelo bago makapagkwento haha

    sayang di ko naranasan mag-dorm kasi taga-Pasig lang ako.
  • ^oo nga, masyado madami. mas maganda kung may specific questions to answer para mas organized ang thoughts. :D tsaka iba na din ata ang Kalai (and UP dorms in general) ngayon.
  • IIRK, Kalayaan is not the only dorm for freshies anymore. I think freshmen can also apply to other dorms like Ipil, Yakal, Molave, Sampaguita, Kamia, and Ilang-Ilang.

    If the current system still holds, i think there is a centralized application for admission for dorms administered by the OSH (office of Student Housing). Sa min kasi noon, may form for application sa Kalai kalakip ng admission notice, tapos i-jujudge nila yung applicat based on province, income ng parents, etc.

    To give you an idea of what UP dorms are like, Kalayaan is the newest dorm for undergrads (Kamagong is for grads kasi). Yun, so asahan mo na yung other dorms ay inferior na ang staus sa kalay. :)
  • @atelunacyro16: ok lang po yon...

    @thirdPerson: sorry po kung no definite questions were listed here..i am utterly clueless kasi..anyway thanks na rin po for the effort to response!

    ^ don't worry. Io-orient din naman kayo about dormitories pagpasok niyo. You'll never be clueless about this. And I think may information about dormitories sa admission letter na sinend sa'yo? Anyhow, like I said, you'll be informed about the residence. *okay*
  • may nabasa po ako dati na depende din po sa layo ng bahay ang pag-aaprove ng dorm application..e kung halimbawa po taga rizal ako..sabi nung iba malapit lang sa diliman yun, pero ayoko nang magcommute..mahihirapan po ba ako sa dorm application?

    nope. kalai lang ang pwedeng pag-applyan. if di ka matanggap dun, then saka ka na ililipat ng OSH sa ibang dorms. last year, boys not lucky enough to enter kalai went to yakal, while the girls went to ilang-ilang. i don't know if this system will apply this year though.
