Off-Campus Housing: I mean, these are college houses and apartments we're talking about. Some of the landlords take better care than others, but housing is always super affordable. I paid $250 a month my senior year as one of four in a duplex. We were a block from campus. You can't beat that.

Off-Campus Housing: There are set houses that belong to my school and some that belong to current students who pass them to younger students when they graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Could be more housing but some okay houses.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty off campus housing options, however it rather pricey. Plus you can only live with 2 other non related people in the city of University Heights.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for housing around the campus although for a clean apartment the price is a bit high, but we are in Cleveland

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.
