College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't the slightest idea what off-campus housing looks like.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Sometimes I wish I could live off campus, but that's not an option until senior year.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: the houses are nice if you can find a landlord willing to lease to college students. the school is not in favor of students moving off campus, though, only seniors or students 21 and older can move off.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The new developments are really cool! not too expensive and very nice houses for college students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Almost all students are able to live on campus because there are on campus apartments. That means that there is a small amount of off campus housing, but if you wanted to live off campus it would not be hard to find.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Although there is relatively reasonable housing to rent within a mile or less of campus, most upperclassmen choose to live in the campus apartments, which are quite nice and conveniently located. Since there is so much happening on campus, with various events, students choose to live nearby. Also, off-campus housing is not available for underclassmen, as there is a requirement for freshmen and sophomores to live on campus (unless a student is commuting from his or her parents'/guardians' house).

There are seven apartments referred to as "the suburbs," which are College-owned, quite new, and reserved for upperclassmen who have a minimum of 62 credit hours. Although living off campus gives students freedom and independence, many students feel that the community and social environment are much better on or near campus, and that it is easier to stay connected to friends. Students recommend to either live in the dorms or live in the "suburbs" owned by the College, since they are both close to campus. You don't want to miss the social scene, which is a large part of college life.
