      Awesome singles. Great peeps. Not your average freshman dorm with roommate comraderie simply bc they're all singles. Ignore reviews that all ashton was used for covid peeps--- it's not true. Yes super old and cement floors and bathrooms yucky but it was great freshman room near everything and private spacious room awesome with lots of storage. Bus, food, gym immediately near ashton. Great small community!!!!

      As far as IU residence halls get, this one is a little more bare bones than most. I love having a room to myself with easy access to dining, but the amenities are due for an upgrade. The air conditioner is stuck on 74 unless you tamper with it, and the fans freeze in winter, so it can be loud sometimes. The bathrooms are honestly about what you'd expect for a residence hall, but there is no central air so it can get a little hot. The residents themselves, despite everyone living in singles, are actually pretty social. I'm not particularly social myself, and it's fine to hang out in the common areas (since that's what they're there for) but they can get really loud sometimes. Some of the rooms are also connected by doors that block absolutely no sound, so if your neighbor is a party animal, then good luck finding peace and quiet elsewhere because it's not happening in your own room.
