3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: As a freshman, I have only been in a couple of off campus houses. They are typically all the same, the farther from campus, the nicer the style which makes for a difficult decision when deciding on housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of options off campus but it's hard to get housing closer to campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: So many options, close to campus

Off-Campus Housing: lots of places to choose from

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus gives you freedoms that you will definitely enjoy if you're a person who enjoys getting the full college experience. There aren't any RAs or campus cops busting down your door if you have a few friends over for beers in your room. There are more than a handful of different apartment complexes around, and you'll get what you pay for. Rent is usually around $500 a month more or less, which is dirt cheap comparatively around the country. If you live in a house off campus and not in an apartment complex, landlords are extremely helpful and understanding, at least mine is. Commuter parking is actually a lot nicer than resident parking, and if you don't want to walk 10 minutes to class, the CAT buses are on constant loops between parking lots and campus.

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.
