3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Good quality but you need to know the right people to find the opportunity. Much cheaper but the college reduces your financial aid.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus myself and haven't been involved in that process at all, so I can't comment on that aspect of off-campus living. However, I can tell you that Beloit requires you to live on campus through your junior year--and I don't think that's a bad thing. While it is pretty common for seniors to live off-campus, you don't hear much grumbling from younger students who want to move off-campus. After all, we already live on the nicest few blocks of the city--why would you want to leave them? Also, Beloit subtracts $1400 from your financial aid if you move off campus, so it's really not an option if your family's strapped for cash.

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.

    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.
