5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: For the added freedom you get from not living on campus, off-campus housing is great.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are various different types of housing that a student can pick. Many range from ~$200 - $500 and there are more expensive ones that have the added luxury to them. There's a public transportation system that my school uses and covers a majority of the town and access to neighboring cities. Most of the apartment complexes to the university takes about 15 minutes to get to by bus.

Off-Campus Housing: Compared to on campus housing it is affordable, easy to find, and higher quality for price. The benefit to on campus housing is the ease of being so close to your classes. The cons are that you 1. have to adhere to strict noise levels otherwise you could get in trouble with the university 2. more expensive than most off campus for the quality of living. 3. you apply to the top 3 housing arrangements, you might not get your first pick 4. you have to have a roommate 5. due to parking for those who live on campus being far away, it is a hassle to go anywhere off campus. 6. on campus housing is still not any safer than off campus housing. (my apartment was broken into when I lived on campus)

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Most students find themselves ready to make the move off campus by their junior and senior years. After dealing with RAs and small living quarters, students agree that off-campus apartments are a great alternative. Most seem to think that a lot of the apartments are close enough to campus that living off campus does not inconvenience them.

Off-campus housing is popular and convenient, and campus transportation runs to or near all apartment complexes in the area. Some apartments are even within short walking distance of campus. When deciding where to live during your time at Clemson, you should definitely consider some of the off-campus housing options available.
