Coe has a high percentage of students living on campus, with nearly 85 percent of Kohawks residing in residence halls or campus-owned housing. Those that live off campus mostly include international students. At the end of every semester, students have the option to switch their campus housing. Students usually change present roommates to more compatible ones. However, those interested in moving off campus should see Residence Life for proper advisement.
Students living off campus have apartments located within walking distance from Coe. Suffice it to say, security on campus is likely to be better than security in off-campus housing, depending on which neighborhood a student inhabits. There are occasional rumors of theft in off-campus apartments; however, many students still choose off-campus housing because of the lower living expenses compared to on-campus living.
