    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Students would prefer to stay off campus, if possible. It would guarantee them a larger refund check and independence. Living off campus allows students to become more responsible and receive a better experience of living independently. Students seem to think that living off campus is quite worth it because they get to live by their own rules without a visitation curfew or dormitory checks.

Most students do stay on campus because there are not a lot of affordable living arrangements in Elizabeth City. Housing for students in Viking Village and Microtel Inn & Suites cost about twice as much as regular housing than other dorms on campus. If students want the best housing, they have to pay more for residence living. Overall, students have plenty of options for housing during the housing application process. The process consists of students paying a deposit fee of $125, and then they are capable of selecting their particular dorm for the school year.
