3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a large apartment complex nearby, that's about it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: People live in different places all over the city.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have no experience with the off-campus housing, but from what I've seen, it's sometimes just easier to live on campus at the apartments especially if you have people to live with. If you're looking for an off-campus apartment, it's best to look when you're a freshman or a sophomore so you can live there for 2-3 years. Then I think it would be worth it to bring all your stuff into that apartment.

Most people live on campus at Arcadia, but there are some perks to living off campus. You get more freedom, can cook for yourself, and don't have to feel dependent on the University for everything. However, rent can be expensive, especially in the Philadelphia area. If you do choose to live off campus, the best bet is to find roommates to help defray the costs.
