5 College Sophomore

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.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Basically, because not all students are eligible to live out of campus the options are limited.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students are not able to live off-campus due to the policies at Bob Jones University.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is located right across the street off of front campus. You can walk to class while enjoying your own room and privacy!

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.
