3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: My school is smack in downtown Pittsburgh, which means no matter who you are, there are always going to be the problems that come along with sizable city. Parking is a hassle, apartments near campus can be really expensive, and some of the college age specific apartments can be a bit run down. But compared to finding housing in places like Chicago, Boston, or New York we have it easy.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: i have never needed to research off campus housing, I own my home in butler pa.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally would not like to live off campus. Most students who live off campus live in Oakland. The houses are very rundown but cheap. It is also not very safe. However, the shuttle service is available in Oakland to shuttle students to campus for classes. There are however apartments available downtown near the school. They are a little more expensive but they are nice, clean, and safe.
