3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Out College doest really offers dormitory. They let boarding students find their own

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no housing outside of campus because the area is an upper-middle class and upper class housing. Living on campus is usually preferred. Most of the commuters don't live far from school.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Not many offers or availability

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live on campus nor do I want to.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: As I am a first semester, out of town student, I am staying on campus. I did see ads in the student hangout areas offering off campus housing. Because Dominican University is in a small town, housing in this town as well some of the other towns are close by the school.

Living off campus can be pretty expensive. However, some students feel that the freedom and independence are worth the expense.

On the other hand, those students who live off campus often miss out on what's going on on campus and feel disconnected from the students and community.
