4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have just moved off campus, and in comparison to living with strangers, I love it. I have a washer and dryer, I have roommate I can trust, and I live on the water. However, the landlord loves to ignore us, and the parking isn't the best.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I got a new place and love it.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Its better to stay on campus. But cheaper off campus!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Solid. You can get off campus housing if you'd like it, but it's going to cost, despite the houses not being all that great. The everpresent train is mildly irritating too.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is worth it because you have your own place and you don't have to worry about much. The cost for rent is reasonable, everyone knows the prices will be a little high because it is by a college.

There are a couple of places for off-campus housing, including the Frog Pond Apartments and College Manor Apartments. Frog Pond has a full-year lease and includes four people with their own rooms. College Manor includes a two-bedroom apartment with one bathroom. At both residences, the cost is usually $400 a month.

It is a little hard to find a place off campus because a lot of students occupy housing before the beginning of the semester. The best time to find a place to stay is during the summer and at the end of fall break. Usually, when the seniors move out is the best time to find a place to stay. Most of the time, it is worth it, especially if you have someone you trust, whether it is a friend or a family member. There are a lot of students that stay on campus because they either cannot find a place to stay or they feel that they should stay on campus.
