3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not to many options of choosing your own housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You are required to live on campus for 3 years. I think It would be very worth it to find an apartment near campus. I plan to live off campus my senior year.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartments near campus and are very affordable. They are more affordable than on campus housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not think Oglethorpe has any off campus housing .

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of apartment/homes available for rent; however, the price may be an issue for a college student.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Apartments are everywhere around Oglethorpe, but they can be difficult to afford. While having a roommate can greatly decrease costs, it's not always easy to find someone to live with. Plus, other costs, such as food and furniture, can be pricey on their own. All of this needs to be kept in mind when deciding which apartment suits a student best.

Without the finances, living off-campus is pretty impossible. Many students spend their whole college careers in dorm rooms. But for those who choose not to, well-maintained, gorgeous apartments are just a few miles away. They may be pricey, but the rent is spent on the tenants. Apartments here have everything from pools to fitness centers. Several also allow residents to own cats and dogs, which is against the rules at Oglethorpe.

While Oglethorpe may be hard to compete with in terms of appearance, the apartments can stand their ground. Though stylistically appearing more modern than OU, the apartments retain an aesthetic appeal. They're not just comfortable buildings to live in but fun places to entertain visitors.
