Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are alot of options in every price range. Obviously the lower the price then the lower quality the house/apartment. This is a college town so the rent houses and apartments get alot of wear and tear with the rotation of renters, but I find several apartments are really kept up between tenants. No matter where you live the bus system is close by and during peak class times it's no more than 10-15 minutes between buses. This helps save money on parking and gas. The bus routes also stop at local businesses so you can hop off after class at HEB to do some grocery shopping, or catch a bus to Target, Walmart or the mall and then catch a bus back home. It's really convenient!

Most Texas A&M students start off living in a dorm and then upgrade to an off-campus apartment or a house. Living off campus has its advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, you get your own personal space, a kitchen, and a living a room, so it’s practically a home. But, on the other hand, you will have to pay your own utility bills and deal with finding transportation to school.

There are hundreds of apartments near campus, all at reasonable rates. Some students prefer to live in cheaper houses in Bryan, but this means they have to sacrifice the convenience of living close to campus. Many students say the best option is to try to get a house close to campus, so you won’t have to search for parking on campus. Plsu, the bus system is pretty good, and there are routes from most apartments to different spots on campus. Obviously the choice is yours, but remember that any place, big or small, can be called home.
