A dorm exclusively for first-years, located on West College Street and at the south end of Wilder Bowl. Dascomb has rooms for 156 students, a piano lounge and large TV lounge on the first floor, and kitchenettes and smaller lounges on the second and third floors.
Also known as "da 'scum", mostly because the exterior of the building isn't too attractive and the interior used to be run-down before it was renovated in the summer of 2002. Also known as Thug Mansion.
It is said that, each year, Dascomb is baptised in vomit. --Anonymous, 24 Aug 2006
The worse of the two all-freshman dorms at Oberlin College, behind Barrows. I'll say this, it was urinated on.
I hope I'm not re-posting this... Just wanted to say that Dascomb takes a lot of hits, but it's the best location on campus, accessible to everything; having the dining hall in-house is incredibly convenient; I met really nice people there my freshman year--we're still close friends. We had a lot of fun, and having Wilder Bowl as our front yard was a blast. --DoublDegree, 13 July 2010
“I lived in Dascomb my freshman year; it was a pretty positive experience for me. It was really easy to make friends, especially those outside of the con (which is what I wanted, since I'm a connie and spend most of my day with other connies). It does get a little crazy sometimes, but it's a great way to meet people and have fun. Dcomb's also the closest dorm to Wilder/Mudd/King. If you're worried about making friends, I'd say first year housing is a good choice.” --scubachic176, June 2008 
Often called 'Da Scub.' It does have a dinning hall on the first floor, so you can go eat in your pajamas. Most of those I know who lived there had a love-hate relationship with it. In 2004-05, it will be an all-first-year dorm. Generally it tends to have many of the vices of Barrows (noise, drugs, alcohol), but is not quite as crazy. --ilunas 
ahhh, Scum. The singles are usually populated by conservatory students who couldn't get a room in Talcott, since it's a two minute walk from the Con. also a good location for history, English, CS, or math majors, since the only thing that separates it from King is a parking lot. However, the building is ugly, the rooms are pretty small, and when I lived there the 6-am fire alarms were pretty frequent. (maybe they've dusted in the 3.5 years since then, but somehow I doubt it.) The kitchens are reasonably nice, however, and the communities (if you find one you like) are pretty tight-knit. Some of the people who lived on my hall when we were freshmen are still sharing apartments during their senior year. --jude
