3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of affordable choices.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've not tried, but friends who have lived off-campus enjoy it, but miss dorm life and the social interaction.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not experienced the off campus housing near the school. I really don't know about the quality or availability.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Its Not Really an Option. Students are required to live on campus unless they have family in town or are above senior status. However, if you are able to live off campus, you lose half of your scholarship. Therefore, a huge majority of Freed's students live on campus. For the people that are able to live off campus though, i've always heard positive things about availability and price.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Privileged Housing – The costs are about the same as dorms and they are much quieter and offer much more freedom while still being under supervision. We are not a party school by any means. A wild time to us is going to two Bible studies or singings on the same night so there is no need to worry about what is going on in the priv. housing. The pros are that members of the opposite sex are allowed to visit during certain hours of the day. The cons are that there is no where to spend time alone with a significant other other than the Priv Housing.

Freshmen are required to live on campus, and although the handbook states that an undergraduate student must be either 23 or married in order to live off campus, many exceptions are made to this rule, often involving a student's GPA and good behavior.

There are several places to live off campus that are relatively close to the school. Many teachers buy houses to rent out to students for very cheap prices, and students can also live in a few apartment complexes near campus. However, most students stay on campus and live in dorms or the senior apartments. Very few students will pay the extra money to live off campus and provide their own furnishings and food.
