4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of my friends live off-campus and love it!

Off-Campus Housing: There's housing for sure, some right across the street, but there's definitely room for improvement.

Off-Campus Housing: Awesome Public Saftey – Most of the public safety officers on campus are friendly. The only reason there's a minus is because they're sometimes not in the office. If you call them, they'll usually come over and help you with what you need; but sometimes when they're across campus, it can take a while for them to show up. But, it's all good :)!

Off-Campus Housing: The Tricky Truth – The off campus housing in Waterville are not associated with Thomas College. If you can find housing off campus there is not much at all. The apartments are run down and have loads of bugs in them!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Prices Depend on Places – It is easy to find appartments close to campus because the school is in a colllege town, however depending on the places your willing to live will determine the prices. There are some areas where it is more expensive but it is also safer to live while the cheaper appartments face a higher crime rate. But if you have roomates then the more expensive appartments can be managable.

Most Thomas students live on campus, but there are apartment complexes right across the street from campus if you want to live off campus but still be close to the College. The apartments are a little on the pricey side, but if you have a roommate, you can split the cost to make it more affordable.

Most students already have arrangments with roommates before they arrive, but Student Affairs and other resources can be a big help if you do not.
