Ryan Hall is a great dorm for it's location on Catholic University's campus and the social scene. It is very close to the metro, making it easy to get in and out of the city. It also close to many buildings on campus, with the cafeteria being only a 4-5 minute walk away and the gym being a 2 minute walk. The only downside to Ryan Hall is that there is no separation of the rooms, they are all located in one giant hall. This makes the loudness factor impossible to ignore. Despite that, Ryan is a great dorm and I would recommend it to anyone.
