It might have changed since I've been there, but the tiny rooms were overcrowded, the food was terrible, and nothing was ever clean.

Garner is old but well-built. The location is close to the business campus and to the sports facilities on campus.

lived in garner freshman year. bathrooms were always clean which was something i didnt expect. ya its small and old but it feels like a college dorm. everyone on my floor always had their door open and it was great because people would walk around and get ready together and go out together. Wouldnt change this experience for some new dorm that seems like a hotel. six pack <3

It's a great place to live, it's close to the dining hall, late night, and the ARC. The rooms can seem tiny if you don't get along with your roommate though. It's a good freshmen dorm.

For being a college dorm, Garner is really not that bad. If you are going to live anywhere at U of I in the University Housing, you would want to live some where in the 6-pack. The actual place you live might not be that great, but being around people who are social, outgoing and willing to get to know you seem to be much more important. I love living in Garner because people are friendly, so you get to know almost everyone on your floor. As long as you don't mind living in a rundown building, you should want to live here as a freshman or sophomore at U of I.

Great place to live freshman year (Leads love), but the building is ridiculously old. Rooms are not so great unless you get a corner triple..
