College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't use off-campus housing for college students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off-campus. It's cheaper than a dorm room, especially if you're sharing the cost with an apartment mate.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many places you can stay.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on how lowly you are willing to live, the availability can be high. I live off campus and enjoy that it is nearby and not too high in price, but I know that many people are not that fortunate. It will take a while to find somewhere to stay, that is for sure. It took me about 2 1/2 months to find something decent, but I am not originally from this state.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: For the off campus housing selection here at cedar crest is okay. they have a lot of options for single living or with roommates, at reasonable prices.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

Students are generally encouraged to live on campus. The off-campus housing that is affordable for students is generally not close to campus, and although the campus is within close driving distance of downtown Allentown, many students don't feel comfortable with the idea of renting an apartment in that area. 

If you are willing to drive a bit farther, you can find affordable apartments in a variety of neighborhoods. Some students find apartments outside of Allentown or in Bethlehem.
