The Best Dorm Room


According to Playboy, the most coveted dorm room in America is Harvard’s Kirkland H33. Coveted is sort of an odd way to describe a room that almost no one, including high school seniors admitted to Harvard, has heard about. Still, if you’re lucky enough to be assigned the triple for next year, know that it does have quite a history.

Kirkland H33 was Mark Zuckerberg’s room. That’s where he launched Facebook on February 4, 2004.

The Kirkland rating comes from the May issue (link is not safe for work) of the magazine, which also crowned the University of Colorado at Boulder the top party school in the country. [Image via]
