Students call for renovations to the only graduate dorm on campus Credit: Sukhmani Kaur After student complaints, administrators will hold focus groups next month to figure out how to improve housing options for graduate students on campus.
The only on-campus housing option for graduate students is Sansom Place East, unless they work as graduate associates in other dorms, including the high rises.
Graduate students over the years have criticized the dilapidating conditions of Sansom Place East, including faulty appliances, the lack of cleanliness, and pests.
Sansom Place West is currently closed due to the lack of interest in graduate student housing. Students said the building conditions in Sansom Place East are deteriorating despite the onslaught of new undergraduate dorms on campus.
In contrast, Sansom Place East hasn't been fully renovated since it was built in , though parts of it have been upgraded, said Douglas Berger, the executive director for Business Services. Stephanie Ko, a master's candidate for professional counseling, chose to live at Sansom because she grew up in California and did not know anything about housing in the Philadelphia area.
She said many of her amenities need updating, and her oven does not work.
A major issue in the building is the efficacy of maintenance requests. Her sink gets clogged frequently, and it took her three separate maintenance requests and nearly three months to get a moldy shower curtain replaced.
Ko, who plans to attend the focus groups, said she is advocating for better lounges in Sansom Place East. Students do not currently use the Sansom lounges because they are all located in a windowless basement, and are in "pretty poor condition," Ko said.
Yanning Yu, a second-year graduate student in the Graduate School of Education, said the maintenance issues she encountered in her room at Sansom Place East included the lack of cleanliness, issues with the fridge and the fire alarm, leaking pipes, and pests.
Because of maintenance in her room last year, she and her roommate were temporarily moved to a room in Sansom West without a working bathroom. At one point, she had keys for three different rooms: her Sansom East room, her Sansom West room, and a separate bathroom.
I was forced to do this. However, Sansom is also a more convenient option for students in one-year master's degree programs, as it offers more convenient nine to month leases, said Anita Mastroieni, the associate vice provost for graduate education.
There are about graduate students who live on campus, Mastroieni said. About of these graduate students live in Sansom East, whereas the others act as GAs in the remaining college houses. Most Read.
