College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Berry students are required to live on campus. Recently, upperclassmen have been given the option to live off campus by application, but only because of shortages on campus. We currently have more students than we have housing. Otherwise, Berry would have us all on-campus. However, campus housing is especially nice for upperclassmen anyway, and most Berry students appreciate being so close to campus options.

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off campus. They do not help you with finding a house or apartment off campus. They hope to house everyone on campus but ask students to live off campus due to lack of dorms and spaces.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Berry Students are required to live on campus, unless you are a commuter that lives within 30 miles of campus.

Unfortunately, Berry does not allow its students to live off campus. Making all students live on campus is viewed as an attempt to build community. Students must meet one of the following qualifications to move off campus: live within 40 miles of campus, be married, be a fifth-year senior, or be 25 years or older.

However, with the recent influx of freshmen coming to Berry, Residence Life has had to allow more students the chance to live off campus. The process is long, but it is significantly cheaper to live off campus if you have roommates. Off-campus housing information is not readily available to students, but Google searches often turn up viable options.
