3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I think the off campus house availability is at a premium near my campus. I am a commuter and I live at home but I live about half an hour from the campus. Since the availability is minimum, I think the cost far outweighs the value of the safety available on campus. If you don't live close enough to live at home I think campus housing is a better value.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The school is very helpful and ours willing to help out if necessary.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Parking for commuters is impossible unless you have the first class of the day. All of the residence halls on campus are brand new and worth living in.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The houses near by are okay; however, there are new apartments down the street that are just for Alvernia or Penn State students and they are really nice

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am honestly not quite sure about off campus living. I know there are some houses off campus that a group of students will rent for a year and there is local apartment complex called 525 but I do not know much about them. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
