4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is very easy to get off campus housing that is reasonably close to campus and is affordable for the average student. All houses that students rent are in very safe areas of town and are relatively high quality for student housing. The only con is that many houses are in residential neighborhoods so anyone who is trying to throw a huge party will most likely have it shut down by either their neighbors or the police.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet looked at off campus housing.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not generally have much experience with off-campus housing. However, I will say that most seniors live off campus with little trouble.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Finding an apartment wasn't too difficult because there are so many in the area, and the realtors are really nice, but it's expensive if you plan to live alone.

Off-campus housing is often something many seniors look forward to, as a chance to experience real independence as a college student at Quinnipiac University. There is a pretty good selection of off-campus properties for students to choose from, and Quinnipiac owns many houses within two to five miles from main campus, as well. These houses usually hold from six to 10 people. The student pays the University a room and board portion of their tuition, but they are responsible for their own food, cable, and Internet. There is no University-supported cleaning service that cleans the houses.

The University also owns the Whitney Village apartment complex. The complex has a '70s-like feel, but it's a very popular option among students wanting to experience a more independent lifestyle. There are also many apartments that students can choose from in Hamden. The most desirable apartment complexes are Aspen Glen and Town Walk, located in the Hamden Hills area, just five minutes away from Quinnipiac. Apartments are either one- or two-bedroom accommodations, ranging between $1,200 and $2,000 a month.
