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.

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.
