3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The closer to campus the higher the rent and also the smaller the space for the most part. There are a lot of different options. The school transit stops at most complexes so it's not necessary to drive to school everyday which can reduce cost because you won't need a parking permit. Also the required meal plan is cheaper.

Students at Auburn overwhelmingly prefer off-campus housing to on-campus housing. For the most part, it's convenient, relatively easy to obtain, and sometimes even cheaper than living in a dorm.

While off-campus housing is preferred, students still advise you to try living on campus for at least a year or so. When you do decide to get a place off campus, start looking early. Since off-campus housing is so popular, decent apartments, townhouses, and condos can fill up just as quickly as the dorms do.
