3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and am not a wealth of knowledge on this currently but they want you to stay on campus freshman and sophomore year then. It's hard to get off board at those times; even if you get an apartment. As an upperclassman it's easier and there are several places to look for housing in rental houses or apartments. Beware the Yellows if you aren't willing to be up late with a bit of noise on weekends. Most places I've seen seems safe as long as you exercise common sense; you'll know what part of town are sketchy by the end of freshman year. Though, I'd still suggest living in campus apartments as an upperclassman; they're nicer then having to deal with a landlord and more convenient.

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to find any off campus housing and anyway it's too far away.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have experience with the off-campus housing, especially because there is SUCH a variety of on-campus housing that I have no desire to bother living off-campus. We have on-campus dorms, suites, houses, townhouses, and apartment-type places. I feel no need to leave campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Very few students live off-campus because the on-campus housing offers such a variety of environments (such as suites, houses, apartments, and townhouses). However, upperclassmen can apply to live off campus and there are several common options with a block of campus that are traditionally Knox students. Cost of living is very low, but safety in the surrounding neighborhoods isn't great. Unless you have extenuating circumstances, I would recommend moving into the on campus apartments rather than off campus. You still get a full kitchen and living area but you are under the umbrella of the school so all maintenance and liability is covered by the college.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off-campus housing. It kinda depends what part of town you're looking at. Some areas are a lot safer than other areas. A lot of people like living on campus though because there are so many different options.
