Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus but I have friends who do. So I'm going based off of what they say and what happens when I visit them

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are places that are not to far from the school and the prices are not to bad. You just have to find the right place but you can get help with that.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus, but I live with a family-friend so it is different from renting a room and finding a roommate. But I pay $400 a month for rent. My mom friend cooks lunch and dinner for me. She even goes above and beyond and cleans my dirty clothes so all in all it is a perfect place for me to stay. The only problem I have is the distance from the place I love and school. It takes 30 minutes for me to get to school, and gas is not cheap!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options available but the pricing is too high for students on a budget. The options within a reasonable price range are in bad neighborhoods and safety is an issue. The off base housing cater more to Florida State students than FAMU.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are plenty of apartments within close proximity to the University, and the rental process is very easy. Many apartments require a guarantor to also sign the lease, but not all do. Prices vary but most traditional apartments and townhomes range from $300 to $600. Many students say the price of rent is definitely worth the extra freedom, space, and privacy they get, and many live with friends to split the bills, so the cost isn’t horrible.

The availability of off-campus is excellent. Tallahassee is a college town through and through and offers a high number of living options for all the students who call the city home during the school year. The quality of the apartments varies, but most come furnished; students can request unfurnished apartments if they have furniture of their own. Lots of students enjoy living off campus, but it’s recommended that freshmen live on campus for their first year so they can enjoy the campus lifestyle.
