Off-Campus Housing: Parking is far away and it is somewhat difficult to find a cheap place to live.

Off-Campus Housing: Special application needed to live off campus. Makes it difficult to get a house off campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing it good because sometimes there are not enough room for students to be housed. However, it can be hard to find a decent apartment or neighborhood that college students can afford. Although, there are many apartments around or near the campus, but all of them do not have good quality.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Interesting Process – Overall, the off-campus housing option is a nice one. The apartments nearby aren't incredibly expensive, depending on where you look. The traffic gets hard as well as parking on campus, but as long as you leave early for class you will have no problem. The housing staff had decided that no one should be able to move off until they are 21 years old; this posed a problem considering that they couldn't offer enough housing for everyone on campus and the majority of the current senior class is under 23. Opening the off-campus option to the current class was a definite pro of the housing options.

Off-campus housing isn't very hard to find. But before you make the big move, you first need to apply and be approved by campus housing to live off campus. While most students generally tend to live on campus, it is sometimes worth it to live off campus because of the money you will save. Staying on campus also keeps you in "the loop" more about what's going on around campus. 

In terms of off-campus living arrangements, students live in both apartments and houses. Apartments are around $650 a month for a single bedroom and not much more for a double bedroom. Apartments and houses are both pretty affordable to rent, and there are a good amount of choices near campus. The streets right off of campus usually have houses for rent, and as close as a block away, there is an apartment complex that some students stay in.
