2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I have seen it is below par

1 person found this useful Report
College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from my home, so I never needed to seek out other off-campus housing. I do notice a good amount of rentals available near campus though. Most of the ones I see advertised ask for decent pricing, even if it might be a little high.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: As far as I know most students live on campus.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There really isn't any reason to live off campus unless your parents live 20 minutes away. If you want the off campus feel but still want to live on campus, try the townhouses.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't many off-campus housing options available in the immediate area of Misericordia University; especially if you intend with even a small number of friends. We are in the book of world records for being surrounded by grave yards, so that might be the first contributing factor for lack of housing (as well as parking).

Rumor has it that living off campus is ten times better than actually living on it. Students who choose to live off campus have to go through a long, tedious search for an apartment, but once they find a suitable arrangement, they're happy not to be living on campus anymore. Generally, houses and apartments near school are always new or in good shape. Since Dallas is an upper-class area, off-campus housing meets the upper-class standards. Those who live off campus say it is worth the effort of finding roommates and getting all of the proper paperwork filled out.

On-campus dorm policies are strict, so living off campus provides a more independent lifestyle. Off-campus housing is also cheaper than the dorm prices ($6,000 to $8,000 per year). Country Club Apartments are popular with students, as they are safe, clean, and provide a welcoming environment. The only other people that live at the Country Club Apartments, besides students, are the elderly. These apartments, and most popular off-campus housing, are just right down the road from campus.
