4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of apartments right down the road from campus which makes walking and biking both extremely viable options. I personally have never taken the buses here but from what others have said, they are reliable and run during school hours. Rent is pretty affordable off campus in comparison to what you would pay for a dorm and also you will get way more space!

Off-Campus Housing: I feel that living off campus is very convenient for students

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is great living off campus. It is much nicer to be able to spend time off campus when you spend so much time there when you have classes there during the weak. Most apartments are close enough to campus where you can walk there within 10 to 15 minutes. I always feel safe walking or biking to and from school which is very important, especially because I am a girl.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is much cheaper than living on campus. You are not tied to a meal plan, or paying between $900 - $1200/ month for room and board. I personally call it 'robbery' living on campus, but on the other hand I am very thankful I lived in the campus dorms my freshman year as I met my future off campus housemates.
