Off-campus housing at High Point is pretty much nonexistent. The University provides students housing for all four years, and almost no one chooses not to live in it. If you do choose to move off campus, then it’s fairly hard to find housing close to campus. Also, the area immediately surrounding the High Point campus isn’t the best of areas. To find an affordable and safe place to live, you definitely have to travel a little farther. For this reason, almost 100 percent of students choose to remain on campus for four years. Another reason students choose to stay on campus is because the housing is nicer and more affordable than renting a house. On-campus housing is either brand-new or recently renovated. Also, with a plethora of different expense levels for housing after freshman year, it’s not hard to find something in your price range.
For students who want more freedom than what on-campus living can offer, High Point does have other “off-campus” options that are still through student housing. The Village, U-Ville, townhomes, and Terrace apartments are all technically “off campus,” but they are still gated and protected by campus security.
