I stayed at Powell during my Masters. I thought it would be quiet and pleasant because it's for post graduate students only, but I was given a room next to a drug dealer who played music on a subwoofer all night. When I complained to the wardens, they would come by to "listen" and "verify" my claims but my neighbour would always turn his music off the moment they came to our building. Later found out he was friends with the wardens. They bullied me and told me I was making it up for six months. Only after going to the university itself did I get moved to another room that had been vacant the entire time. The wardens and staff would also carry out room inspections without warning, or let workmen come in without telling you. I had that happen when I was in the shower. You also have to walk through a dodgy car park after dark to get home. If you are an incoming student DON'T stay there. You can get nice apartments in the nearby towns for far less and the buses are frequent & safe.
