College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, I live at home with my parents.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: With Rochester College residing in Rochester Hills we are certainly surrounded by many different housing options. From apartments, to condos, to houses their are many options for students deciding to live off campus. However, it is at times hard to find something with an affordable or reasonable price because of the city we live in.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not personally looking for off-campus housing at the moment. However, I have heard that because Rochester College is right next door to Downtown Rochester Hills, most nearby off-campus housing is expensive. On a positive note, the atmosphere Downtown is so inviting, and it's so much to do, the cost may not be such a disadvantage.

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Can Be Expensive – The campus is in a relatively affluent city, so the cost of living reflects the environment.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are some apartments nearby, but not extensively. Decent houses two miles away though.

By default, most traditional undergraduates will live on campus. Upperclassmen have more flexibility in this regard, but they are still expected to commit to weekly chapel services and other worship-related activities required by the College.

Apartments in the immediate area (Rochester, northern Oakland County) ranged from about $500 to more than $800 for one- or two-bedroom apartments and townhouses.
