Off-Campus Housing: I would like to stay off campus because you have more freedom you don't have to worry about getting high priced fines

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is available. Because Grambling neighbors the town of Ruston, home of Louisiana Tech University, there are quite a few choices to choose from when searching for off-campus housing. The pros of off-campus housing is freedom. You are able to do more of what you want rather than face the rules of on-campus housing. You also have that sense of feeling independent and showing your parents that you are capable of being independent. However, the cons of being are the bills and expenses especially if you aren't use to having a job or supporting yourself.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus living is something freshmen and sophomores are not allowed to experience, but the research I have done for the future leaves me hopefully for when I can move off.

Freshmen are required to live on campus (unless they have a specific reason for exemption) and other students are not allowed to live off campus unless they have at least 60 credit hours (usually their junior year) or are over the age of 24. But students don’t seem to mind because living on campus is a great way to get a feel for what college life is really like. And once you live on campus for a couple of years, you will really be able to make a decision about whether moving off campus is right for you. Off-campus living comes with a lot of responsibility like paying for utilities, rent, and food. On top of that, you have to cook for yourself, budget your finances to the letter, and make adjustments as time go by. But there are also a lot of perks to living off campus, such as the freedom to throw parties, cook food you like, and the chance to make your apartment a true home away from home.

If you decide to move off campus, there are several apartments and houses to choose from. The rent varies, but apartments are usually cheaper than renting a house. There are several apartment complexes within walking distance of the school, including the popular Stadium View Apartments and University Place. Theses apartments house everyone from local students to international students, which brings a mix of cultures, ethnicities, and languages. The best way to make off-campus housing as affordable as possible is to find roommates, which will decrease your rent and utilities.
