Could any student give me the approximate dimensions of a single in Canaday? Thanks!

Small: I'm gonna guess the dimensions of the bedrooms are no more than 8' x 12' (it really might be more like 10' by 7').
There's a decent closet in each (bring hangers!), a dresser and mirror, a desk and chair and a x-long twin (single) bed. If you have the double, the beds must be stacked (bunks). It's small but do-able.

Actually, I am positive I don't have a double because the info I got in the mail listed no room mates. I would assume that my single would be slightly larger than the singles that are attatched to a common room. Is this a valid assumption?

Quite tiny, almost the same size as a suite's bedroom. Therefore make friends with your suite neighbors!

I stayed with a friend in a Canaday single when I visited Harvard and it was tiny. I basically took up all the floorspace that was not taken up by his desk, bed, and bookcase.
