4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many standard options that are still great! There are also some that you can pay more for if willing to do so that are also wonderful! They are all within minutes from campus and have HPU trolleys that pass through every 10-20 minutes for free so transportation is never an issue! Parking is also usually fairly accessible to those with cars.

Off-Campus Housing: You are allowed to move off campus your senior year only but on campus housing is so great who would want to move off?

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have not explored off-campus housing, though the university does offer several options in which students can partake. These students who live in off-campus university housing have a great deal of options and security and safety not necessarily present in non-university housing.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school seems to try to keep people on campus rather than let them live off campus. We have to live in campus housing until we are seniors, which can be expensive.

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.
