3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Its not the best and could use some creativity, but for the most part its accaeptable.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing selection at my school is so much better than the on-campus selection. Off-campus housing screams freedom and adult-life. One can go on campus and eat in the cafeteria or the market, but there's something so fantastic about eating the delicacies made from ones own hand! And the curfew is more realistic considering that we're are adults. And transportation is available if one has no car. The few cons I will have to address is the fast that we still have curfew. Granted, it's later than the curfew on-campus, but regardless there is still a curfew.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am not really sure about off campus living technically I'm not allowed to live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: My sister lives off campus and its close and affordable between her and her two roommates.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are several places where a student can live off campus. Most upper class students choose to live off campus with their friends, because it's cheaper. However between rent and gas money most off campus students need an off campus job to pay the rent.

The off-campus housing near Oakwood is relatively close and inexpensive. There are many off-campus apartments available, and the quality varies. The benefits of living off campus are that students can have a swimming pool and a nice terrace to enjoy the outdoors while still being in the comfort of their apartments. These luxuries, of course, depend on the type of apartment students get. The apartments nearby provide a comfortable living environment, and they are safe areas with little to no crime. Some apartments are near the mall, providing easy access to the many student necessities.

Students have to be 19 years old or older to live in the off-campus apartments. Many find it worth it to stay off campus because there are no fines and the apartments cost less than Oakwood’s dorm prices. Students who cannot keep up with bills or are not responsible are better staying in on-campus dorms, but students that can handle responsibilities can benefit from the off-campus lifestyle.
