3 College Sophomore

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.

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have experience with off-campus housing. I have a friend who wants to move into one of the apartments next year who maintains that the price would not be much different from living on campus, but I do not know personally how true this is. There are a handful of apartment buildings that I am aware of, and a lot of upperclassmen live there, so people definitely do move into the apartments as they get older, but that is the limit of my small bit of knowledge.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am not really informed when it comes to the topic of off-campus housing because I am not interested in, but I do know that you can ask people, and they will give you information.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a few off-campus houses and apartments and they are reasonably priced. The majority of students, however, live on campus all four years.

Off-Campus Housing: Because Knox has such a community aspect to it, off campus living is discouraged. The way it is decided is by a lottery system and then the "winner" still has to find a house/apartment in walking location. That is not very hard to do as there is a lot of housing near campus, and some landlord rent exclusively to Knox students. However I personally feel safer on campus than off it.
