As an incoming freshman, I knew I wanted to live in Southwest. As I started my process of planning how I wanted to decorate my side of the room, however, I found that there were not as many pictures available online as I would have liked. In an effort to help remedy this, I decided to make this post showing what my room looks like this year in MacKimmie.
While it is not a freshman residential building, it is still a low-rise in Southwest, and is extremely similar to all of the freshman low-rises! Pictures will speak much louder than words here, so I've attached multiple photos below that showcase my side of the room at different angles, including how the closets are structured.
For anyone who is considering, hoping to, or knows they will be living in a Southwest low-rise soon, I hope this helps show you what to expect on move-in day. If you're lucky enough to call one of the low-rises in Southwest your home here at University of Massachusetts, you are in for a fantastic first-year residential experience!
