My son will be a freshman next year. Are the dorms airconditioned? If not, can you bring portable swamp coolers or just fans? What kind of fans work best in Houston's heat and humiditiy? Thanks!

yes. Fans that work in Houston's humidity haven't been invented yet.

During our tour of campus two years ago, the guide mentioned over and over that every single building on campus is air conditioned. We used to live in Houston and know that air conditioning is absolutely a necessity.
As far as a swamp cooler, I think the constant high humidity in Houston would make that a big, big mistake. Just stick with the central A/C that the school has . . . you'll be fine.

What is a swamp cooler??!
|By Jakobfall28 (Jakobfall28) on Thursday, August 05, 2004 - 01:32 pm: Edit|
A swamp cooler evaporates water to cool and actually increases the humidity of a space. Since the humidity is remarkably, and often uncomfortably, high in Houston much of the year, this would only increase that problem.
