Off-Campus Housing: It's not that there aren't places to live off campus because there are. It's that the university does everything it can to force you to stay on campus because that's where they get most of their money. It's cheaper to live off campus but you're only approved if you're living with your parents/legal guardians, or over 21. That means, if your parents aren't living in Grand Rapids, basically you can't live off campus until your senior year.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options in grand rapids for apartments and houses to rent, but most people live on campus in dorms or in the school apartments for convenience.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus throughout my time here at Cornerstone, but from some of the stories I have heard the process of applying to live off campus through Cornerstone is horrendous, but once you get through that students have been able to find great deals on apartments and houses.

Off-Campus Housing: There is "off-campus housing" that is owned by the school and is technically on campus. from what I understand, it is not the greatest. However, it is convenient and more cost efficient. However, students are still required to have a meal plan which is costly. There is little parking available. Other off campus options are difficult to find for a good or fair price.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not searched for off-campus housing yet because it is not allowed until my junior year, but there is a nice selection and i am sure you are able to find some that are not too expensive, a lot less expensive when compared to living on campus.
