In University Heights, there is plenty of off-campus housing available for upperclassman students. John Carroll often helps students find a place through the campus housing program. Around campus, students generally rent apartments, duplexes, and houses. The convenience is great with how close off-campus housing is to campus; however, the availability and cost of off-campus living varies. Even so, most students believe it is worth the cost to live off campus and get the freedom to live as actual adults.
It behooves upperclassmen to at least look into off-campus living as an option. When it comes to living on campus, the dorms are somewhat small, and the housing program and lottery can sometimes backfire on upperclassmen who want to live in a nice dorm. Additionally, living on campus requires students to buy a meal plan, which some students may like, but most don't. Although living off campus requires you to be able to make Easy Mac and cereal for yourself, students tend to believe that the benefits outweigh the negatives.
