TCU offers a variety of off-campus living arrangements for students. We all know that dorm life is part of the college experience, and all freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus. After that, however, if the dorm life is too expensive or not your style, off-campus housing is always a suitable alternative. University apartments are individually leased, so it’s possible that neighboring students could pay different rent and abide by different rules.

Living off campus gives students more freedom and responsibility. With that, however, comes rent and other living expenses. Convenience and parking are important issues, especially for students who do not live on campus. Off-campus apartments and houses may be somewhat inconvenient at times, but many TCU students enjoy the independence that off-campus housing brings to the table.
