4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Really nice apartments in different part of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: GCC is a very tightly knit family. Most people want to live on campus to be apart of it 24/7. I am not very familiar with the off-campus housing situation although a number of apartment places can be seen around the campus. Grove City has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation so it is extremely safe. It feels a bit like Mayberry from the Any Griffith Show in that regard!

3 College Freshman

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does have some apartments that are available for upper classmen. Most students live in the dorms.

When it comes to off-campus housing at GCC, the overall gist is simple—It doesn’t exist. Only students who live at home and commute, "live off campus." Now, whether or not it other students should be allowed is always a debate among the student body.

Some students like the closeness and community that a residence school demands. Others feel that the independence would be healthier, and that commuters would feel more welcome as a part of the school if other people were off campus as well. Whatever the students think, rules are rules.
