Off-Campus Housing: safe area, ridiculous pries. most kids live at home

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Honestly, im not too sure about this one, ive never tried to live off campus. However, ramapo is in a very wealthy area that is surrounded by big expensive houses so i doubt that there are too many off campus options for fairly poor college students.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: only some boys in frats live off campus

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have no experience with off-campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I only explored off campus housing after I accepted on campus and I almost wish I would have lived off campus.

Aside from commuters whose families live in the surrounding area, there is little to no off-campus housing available to students. Mahwah is an upper-class area and property tends to be expensive; finding housing that is on a student's budget is next to impossible.

Students that elect to live off campus would do well looking in areas farther from Mahwah and braving a longer commute. Ramapo College does not have any official off-campus housing available at special or discounted prices; housing is guaranteed on campus for all four years for students in good academic and disciplinary standing. Students would be advised to live on campus, as it is the best deal in the area.
