Virtual Tour: Bean Hall – University of Oregon

October 19, 2019 1 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi guys my name is Brittany I’m a
freshman here at the University of Oregon. I’m a bio major and I live in
Bean Hall, so let’s go on a tour. So these are our Bean Learning Commons, um, here we do like the majority of our studying. If you look around you can see
that like we have all these whiteboards and actually move.
I’ll show you, so you can like slide it down that way and stuff like that, which
is super nice so it opens up the area and it also closes it off so there’s a
lot of different spaces to do your studying here and we have like
individual rooms. Right here this is one of them and yeah
this is our first war so this is our kitchen here at bean we get to use all
these appliances it’s open to everyone it comes with like a microwave and oven
two fridges a blender. So it’s a really nice place to come down with your
friends and chill and cook food. So this is Bean’s courtyard there’s a bunch of
tables and chairs out here so that when weather permits we can actually come out
here hang out and chill. Around the entire perimeter of the courtyard though
there’s a bunch of a bike racks so basically everyone can park their bike
racks here and it’s super safe. So now I’m going to take you guys up to
the residential areas where you’ll actually be living in Bean Hall so come
on! So one really cool feature about Bean
Hall is that we actually have two elevators and it makes it really nice on
move-in day so you don’t have to like lug your stuff all the way up like three
flights of stairs. So this is a standard double room. This is actually my room it
comes with two desks two chairs and then two beds, obviously. We have two extra
dressers right now my roommate has hers under her bed and then mine’s right here.
We brought a fridge we also have a printer. It’s really nice that we have
these windows here so we get a lot of natural lighting in here. Here in this
dorm you can lock your beds and have them de-lofted as well so right now my
roommate has hers de-lofted so this is what it looks like on its low setting
and then my bed’s lofted right here and then I get to like use a space
underneath for like more storage or even just to like hang out under here
sometimes. So this is one of our wardrobes that we get here. It’s pretty
big you can also storage up top so like right here I have all my snacks and like
extra things I don’t really use every day it comes with a towel rack as well
it also has three drawers right here so I mean whatever you want to put in there
and then if you open it up there’s actually a mirror right here so when
you’re getting ready you can use your mirror and then on this side you can see
that it’s like full space so all your clothes and then I put my shoes down
here yeah there’s a lot of space too so you can fit a lot of clothes in here you
know when you don’t think you can. So this is one of our many bathrooms that
we have on the floor. So there’s a bathroom behind me and then right here
we have a sink in a mirror so that even if there’s someone in the bathroom you
can still get ready. We have a shower full shower in here toilet and a sink. So
in there is our laundry room where there’s a bunch of washers and dryers so
most the time it’s pretty easy to find an open one
there’s also a laundry card that we are given at the beginning of the year
which we can fill periodically whenever we need to with money
again over at Hamilton. This is our floors’ lounge. It’s the only line from the floor so everyone uses it. There’s two microwave
so it’s really easy access if you want to heat up your food. We have a bunch of
tables to go study at and then we have a TV and really nice couches so when you
want to relax and just hang out you can watch TV and chill out with your friends.
So this is one of our study hooks there’s two on each floor in the dorms
so people come out here all the time if they don’t want to go out to the lounge
and do their studying and it’s really nice because there’s this nice table
there’s a bunch of chairs there’s nice lighting we have a nice little window
over here. One really cool thing about Bean is that we just kind of all know
each other so I can literally yell down the hallway and somebody will probably
say “Hi”.
