College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are apartments to rent all over in the neighborhood right next to the school. I live on campus and I have never checked out any off campus housing so I'm going with my best guess.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I never lived off campus so I have no idea...

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is limited and the only way to do it is with other people so it is like living on campus except it is better because I will have a kitchen and can stop wasting my money on the school food.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live in the off campus housing. Mostly because it's far and expensive

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Even though I have not lived off campus I have been in many of my friends off campus houses. Everything is mostly in walking distance around the area.The only problem I have is that the university requires students to live on campus for six semesters unless you have a valid reason, to save on finances is not one of the valid reasons they look for which is unfair.

Most upperclassmen prefer to live off campus. All of the traditional college houses are old Victorians that have been thoroughly lived in but poorly kept. Be warned, however: Anyone residing in one of these is expected to throw good parties. However, with the housing policy continuing to change, that means that off-campus housing is not as possible as it used to be. Students are expected to live on campus for three years. 

Once you're a senior, renting an apartment off campus is another option in addition to campus houses. There are apartments above the stores on Main Street and a development that feels a lot like a dorm. There are also condominium-like structures about a mile off campus. All of these options are a bit more expensive, but certainly newer and less likely to collapse. No matter where you choose to live in Alfred, the good news is that it's all very affordable and very close.
