3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Being that Brooklyn College is a CUNY university, majority of the students live off campus and commute to school having no on campus housing. They do help students look for housing in near by apartment complexes in which living in NY city itself is very expensive.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of students, but it is an a very unsafe area.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't alot of options close to school. Its also tricky getting near a subway that runs near the school

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Everything is good, with the exception that its way over priced for the quality....a small studio apt can easily run you $1300 unless you find a "rare gem" that may run you $900 monlty

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have not looked in to Off-campus housing. The neighborhood is nice, however it would probably be expensive as most Brooklyn apartments are.
