3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's okay, but compared to the obscene cost of the dorms it's worth trying to find somewhere else, especially after your freshman year. Roommates from school are available and understanding.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing situation is extremely convenient and the available living spaces are everywhere. The cost is significantly lower then on campus housing, although the parking situation is abysmal. MIAD does not assist students in finding off campus housing

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There's a bunch of new apartment complexes that are too expensive for me, personally, but lots of MIAD kids can afford to live there, and the places are really really nice. North of downtown there's a lot of schools, and it's a big residential area, so finding a house to rent out isn't that hard as long as you can get to it first before other students do. It gets pretty competitive trying to find a reasonably priced and well maintained property.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are three main districts that MIAD student end up living in. Mainly the East Side, the neighborhood surrounding UWM campus. There is a wide variety of housing options and pricing from smaller studio apartments to large houses that can house up to six people in a group. Many MIAD students will also end up living in either Bay View, or River West which can often be slightly cheaper than the East Side but there is less college life.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The Park dorms are fine for your freshman year, but rumor has it that MIAD is making new dorms across the street from campus. I've heard they'll be ready in 2015.
