3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus but I have heard that it is a challenge and competition if fierce.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's strange that you have to sign for a house or apartment two years in advance if you want a good one.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many off campus apartments are available at low cost in somewhat questionable neighborhoods, but typically considered safe. The university is mostly made up of students who life at home with their parent until they graduate or their degree requir3es them to move to the main Oxford campus. The cost of these local apartments are in the range of a part time student worker. Reviews and information on these apartments give good ratings to the landlords and quality of the apartments. However, "safe" the area is claimed to be it would not be wise to live alone, especially not for a young female.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is available through various apartment complexes or in homes that can be rented located nearby the campus. Miami University plays no part in assisting you with obtaining off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Closest to campus are an abundance of small houses you can rent, but it can be difficult to get houses in prime location because Greek Life owns them. Also, there are many apartments, but they can be expensive and difficult to get unless you plan far in advance. Sometimes, you might find a good-priced house, but it can be tricky to find the right amount of people to live with you. Further away from campus (a 10 minute drive) is an affordable apartment complex called Level 27 and you also have Hawks Landing which is further away but more affordable.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Off-campus housing is a privilege awarded to juniors and seniors at Miami University. Although the dorms on campus are very nice and close to classes, they do not compare to the off-campus housing. There are a couple options for students looking to live off campus. The first is apartment complexes, such as Hawks Landing and College Suites, which include a gym, swimming pool, and luxury units. These complexes, although beautiful, are a five-minute drive from campus. The second option is the number of apartments located in town above restaurants and shops. These apartments, although pricey, are extremely nice and sought-after.

Other options include small homes located around Oxford. Students who live in these houses have given them nicknames that usually refer to Greek life or are a reference to what the house physically looks like. For example, one small house on Vine is called "Caddyshack," which refers to the house's resemblance to a caddy shack on a golf course. Although all the houses are safe and well-structured, some are nicer than others. The landlords are usually very understanding of Miami students’ lifestyles and have extremely reasonable prices. Some of these houses are passed down through different Greek life "families" to keep them in the same social circles.
