3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of options however if you don't want to live in the ghettos of Bridgeport you have to pay extra

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most houses are in Bridgeport which is a ghetto neighborhood (worse than Compton). Less expensive than on campus housing but thats not saying much.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most upperclassman (juniors and seniors) live off-campus in houses. Just this year, the school offered off-campus housing as an option to sophomores due to not enough space for the amount of students.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm in the process of obtaining off-campus housing now, and it is a little difficult. The school does not help you find an off campus apartment or house, you have to do it on your own, however you can use student loans to pay for the apartment just as you normally would. Getting off campus housing can be A LOT cheaper than living on campus, and depending on the quality you want, how many people you live with, and the location will determine the price. Looking for a one bed room one bathroom apartment within 5 miles of the school can get pricey, but if you are looking for a 3 bedroom townhouse to split rent on with 3-5 different people, then you might be able to get something inexpensive. The cost of living, however, is usually always cheaper living off campus.

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is okay but in a bad neighborhood if you're renting a house.
