3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had the opportunity to live off campus yet, but from what I hear, it is fun. Housing in general is difficult to find for the fall semester because there are so many new incoming freshmen.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a ton of off-campus housing available for students. Rexburg is growing like crazy, so there are always new complex's being built with state of the art features. All housing must follow the University Honor Code, which really isn't that bad. Most complex's are either split into buildings for just boys and another for just girls. Sometimes complex's are strictly for boys or strictly for girls. The majority of the complex's require you to share a room, you can pay extra for your own room though. A lot of the companies that own the complex's do a lot of activities to promote themselves around town, and they are always great.

Off-Campus Housing: Its can be complicated. Getting a place is super easy. You get assigned roommates which can cause a lot of drama. Also it is not usually worth the price. They charge roughly 1200 a person per apartment which usually holds 6 people. which for an apartment complex that has 36 apartments is 216 people paying that much money. Meaning they are getting $259,200 per semester. Utilities, water, and internet and cable do not cost that much.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived in off-campus housing for about 2 years now, but the options I had at the time were fine. There are many new large apartment buildings/complexes that are built or being built now, so the options are great now.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great, each apartment complex or other housing that i have been too seems pretty sweet! They are all in line with the schools standards of living. Great social places!

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Most students prefer off-campus housing because it brings a little more independence and allows for a more diverse living arrangement between upper- and lowerclassmen. Many students will sign a contract for dorms their first couple of semesters, and then they have a chance to visit some of the apartments and decide on one where they would like to live. Some students prefer living with friends and sign contracts as groups, and others sign up to be with a random group of roommates to meet new people.

Most of the apartments are similar in setup, with three rooms and one bathroom area with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks. There are options for a single room, but the majority of students opt to have shared rooms because of the lesser cost. The higher-priced apartments usually have more options for shared rooms and more modern appliances and design, as well. Typically, women’s housing is better kept than men's housing. But all student-approved housing has regular "clean checks" that ensure students are keeping their apartments clean. The apartments also enforce the Honor Code when students sign their semester/two-semester contract. Students can also save a little money by signing a contract for two semesters instead of one.
