4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The school wants you to live on campus for all four years, but off campus housing exists and is cheap.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard it's okay, although I'm neither eligible nor interested.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Few students choose to live off campus, and if they do, they select from a few previously student-owned homes nearby. It is not unusual to live on campus all four years.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: You are not allowed to live off campus unless you are a senior. At that point there are a large number of options for apartments and houses near the college.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of people rent rooms to students; there are quite a few houses around that have been taken over by students and passed down from generation to generation. It's kind of fun to set your sights on one of your favorite houses in the neighborhood and then trying to live there when it's your senior year. Another thing: you can only live off campus your senior year, but the college also owns a lot of special interest houses that you can live in as soon as second semester freshman year.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Students aren't all that enthused about living off campus; and rightly so. When else are you going to be able to live in a dorm? Never. Nobody has ever heard of a 35-year-old guy or lady going back to school and living in the dorms. Think about the roommate conflicts. Houses are great, having your own apartment is great, but it is also another responsibility you have to take on that you could easily put off for a couple years. Living on campus keeps you closer and more connected to what's going on, and during the winter, nobody's going to want to go all the way over to your place just to hang out with you (unless your place is the party).

You could definitely save money living off campus, and if you want to live more independently, it's a great way to go. Of course, I'm not so sure it's a great way to go at Beloit, mainly because the town is a big downer, and you pretty much become the oddball that has off-campus written next to your name in the student directory. It's like you're the lost lamb, and since we've cut ties with religion, there's no guarantee anybody is going to come out and find you.
