Facilities are new, amenities are nice. Lack of light is an issue.

Open and spacious common spaces. Kitchen is great. Individual rooms come with own bathroom, rooms themselves are quite small. Individual rooms do not have windows. Roommates are assigned with no matching/preference program. They can be really hit or miss.

Munger is great

Munger organizes many events for the residences, and it encourages students from different schools to mingle.

Highly recommend

Munger is a convenient, collegial community. I appreciate having my own room and bathroom. Roommates are respectful and quiet, but I appreciate the community feel.

Great place to live in with a reasonable price

Overall, I really like this place. It is located near school and the building is fairly new and well maintained. Considering about the price, I think it is a great deal!

No Windows is a big problem

Munger is an ideal place to live in. It has everything you need, location, facilities, etc. except there is no windows in your bedroom. It can be a huge problem for people to live in because normally people would feel very uncomfortable living in a room without windows, and you don't even have a safe place to recover yourself when you feel down.

The idea of making people more social is good but it's not working. From my experience, most of the time we are too busy to sit down and talk in the living room. Given that there is no window in the bedroom, my suite really becomes just a place for me to lie at nights.

Amazing Amenities, So Close to Ross

Deciding to live in Munger was one of the best decisions I made regarding my move to A2. It's incredibly convenient (about 6 minute walk to Ross and 7 to downtown), the quality of the living space is very high (especially compared with apartments in the area), and the amenities can't be beat (gym in the building, two floors of study/group work spaces, an outdoor track and outdoor seating areas, etc.). 90% of the bedrooms don't have windows but I got over that within a few days and there's plenty of light in the common areas. It's also a huge relief to be in a university-owned building because whenever something isn't working they're incredibly responsive about fixing it - I once submitted a request at 12:15AM and someone showed up at 9:00 that morning to address it. You don't get to pick your roommates so there's some risk involved there, but I got lucky and absolutely love mine.

Love it here!

Fantastic! All the amenities, plus a market, study rooms, and rooftop track. About a 10 min walk to Ross. However, most bedrooms don't have windows and it's been going through management changes, which has impacted how quickly things get done (ex. they blocked off the garbage shoots early in the school year for safety reasons and the issue won't be fixed until the next school year).

Great amenities, roommates are hard to control

The Munger facility is amazing and beautiful, and my room is great! You can't pick your roommates, which can be great because of the opportunity to meet new people across grad schools, but can be difficult if living styles don't match (as in my case).

Munger 7 person mixed gender suite

Pros: Spacious common area, private bedroom with our own bathroom. 8 minute walk to Ross and downtown. Lots of MBAs live here, so easy place to meet up to study at any time of the day. Only grad students live here and they are from all the different programs, so great place to meet new people and get out of the Ross bubble. Lots of study spaces. Gym and rooftop track.

Cons: Most bedrooms don't have windows. Hit or miss on your roommates.
