College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing but there are apartments everywhere around the area. Some are expensive, some are not. Safety is questionable in some off campus areas in the city.

Off-Campus Housing: I live no where near my campus or around it. I take classes my classes through my college in a different county then the actual campus is located

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: My school does not offer any off-campus housing. You either stay on campus or commute. As a past commuter, it is not great. I don't have anywhere quiet to study and when i do i normally don't have the times. I believe that they should offer some possibilities even if they are shared with loyola.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus/rental possibilities here in the Towson/Baltimore area but it can get very costly since this is Maryland. There a lot of very diverse areas where you can rent in that's nearby to campus. From little rental houses/apts. in the hipstery artsy Hampden neighborhood to some of the more student-oriented apartments in towson town center you have a lot of range.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Safety Vs Cost – There are a lot of places to live that are not too expensive, but most of them are in neighborhoods that aren't very safe. Most of the ones that are in safe areas are pretty expensive

Want to get an apartment around Notre Dame? Let’s just say that’s probably not the best idea for your wallet. The cost of living in Maryland is high, especially in the area surrounding the campus. Many people who aren’t natives to Baltimore usually have the perception that the entire city is run-down and full of violence. Though that may be true in some places, there are also a lot of nicer regions, as well. The area around Notre Dame is one of those nicer areas, so naturally your rent will be higher if you want to live close to the school. It isn’t too hard to find housing off campus, but finding something within a decent price range will be a challenge.

On the other hand, living on campus isn’t much better as far as prices go. In fact, it may cost even more than living off campus with a few roommates in a house. Despite this fact, students coming from out of state will usually grit their teeth and bear the cost. It’s easier being on campus and taking out a loan to pay for your cost of living when you’re in an unfamiliar area than trying to come up with monthly payments for rent. A lot of students are commuters, too, so they can just live with their parents or may already have a permanent residence nearby.
