College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I did not use the resources at my school to find my off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Towson Place and University Village are really expensive, that's all I know

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is easier if you have a car not a lot of availability walking distance.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I lived off campus at The Colony at Kenilworth. Average landlords, kind of unhelpful if you have a problem, but if you keep on them, eventually your problem will get fixed. They were understaffed when I lived there. Not sure how they are now. I loved my apartment. Private entrances. All front doors are outside, like mini-townhouses. I could hear my neighbors upstairs, but most apartments are like that. I would liver there again. Really close to campus and Towson nightlife. Shuttle will take you to class (free).

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Not bad good for students though sometimes it can be annoying that there are people partying on a Tuesday night. But that could happen anywhere, so I would say its not bad off-campus housing.

Living off campus is a choice that many Towson students make. There are many wonderful apartment complexes in proximity to the campus, but living in private homes is becoming more and more common. And students love that their options tend to be affordable and convenient. Believe it or not, though, no matter how much students love living off campus, many end up missing the dorms.

One of the best reasons for living off campus is that the majority of nearby apartments are filled with Towson students, which makes living off campus a more comfortable experience. And, although students interact with other students living off campus, this does not take away from the independent stance of living away from the dorms. Every apartment complex is different from the other—some are more like a traditional home, while other complexes tend to party a little more. The choice is yours.
