1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not easy to find anything off-campus. Most homeowners don't like to allow students to pay them using refund money and will look at credit which is mostly poor for college students due to lack of experience.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not really know because I was not able to get off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is an added cost because it doesn't come with a meal plan.. but it is worth it.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is bleak and pretty much obsolete and not safe.

Off-Campus Housing: for me, it is not really worth hassle, especially the fact that I do not have transport, and I am not use to the public transport.

Living off campus while attending Savannah State University is an option available to students, but it is not required of students to live off campus. It is not required for students to live on campus as freshmen, either. It is pretty easy to find an apartment off campus for an affordable price, as long as you plan ahead and search early.

More students stay on campus because it's easier to stay involved and get to things available on campus promptly. Off-campus housing is within a five-mile radius and is nicely accommodated. A disadvantage of staying off campus is your involvement around campus. Suppose you only have classes on Tuesday and Thursday; you probably won't come to campus Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Eventually, your tiger pride will fade, so stay involved.
