3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Guilford is not helpful with living off campus. They would prefer you to live on campus. But offcampus is cheaper if you live near by like I do.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the students live on campus and off campus housing is limited.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: good options for apartments but it's hard to be off campus without a car.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I stay on campus so I am unsure about the off-house campus But one of my freinds stays off campus and I stayed there over the summer and it was really nice, close to campus and quiet.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Elizabeth C. Laird
View all previous student authors

With freshman class numbers increasing in recent years, Residential Life has been forced to grant more requests due to a lack of adequate on-campus housing. There is affordable living in a lovely setting close to campus, such as in the neighborhoods of Friendly Hills and Madison Woods. If you are searching for a historic, beautiful house in a large off-campus college community, you only have to travel a bit farther.

Generally, students find it easier and beneficial to stay involved with the Guilford community by living on campus. The alternative houses and the student apartments are similar to more independent living situations, but without the hassle of having to keep track of all the bills. However, those who do live off campus are happy and pleased with their decision and accommodations. If you're an independant person, then living off campus is a practical option.
