4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is very convenient. The landlords are wonderful. The house is old, but it meets my needs.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived in or visited the interior of any of the housing options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Students have to be a certain age to even consider living off campus. For the most part, and for me, it just doesn't seem worth it.

Off-Campus Housing: I love the number of apartment houses right next to campus. They also have a lot of rental houses in the area that would be convenient for people wanting to split cost and room 4 or 5 students in one larger house.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The school itself has apartments available for those who decide to live off-campus. It's less costly, and lenient.

It is not hard to find off-campus housing. In fact, Greenville has nice and affordable apartments. Unfortunately, the majority of students cannot enjoy this opportunity since BJU only allows students 23 years of age and older to live off campus. The off-campus students (or townies) say that it is worth it to move off campus since they do not have to follow the residence hall rules. The bedtime rule makes resident students want to rent their own apartment. However, there are benefits to living on campus. The students have easier access to labs and work. There are pros and cons to living on and off campus, but the majority of students would choose off-campus housing.

Greer is a popular area where many townies find their apartments. It is only 15 minutes away from campus, and traffic tends to be fast.
