4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus soo I wouldn't know what to say about off campus housing

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's expensive and your parents have to sign everything because you dont have good income. They should be more flexible with students

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to live in off campus housing in my time at Towson, for I lived in a dorm last year and will be a resident assistant this year. However, my friends who do live in off campus housing have been very pleased.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of places to live off campus. This is mainly because of the large college town Towson is. However, prices are pretty steep unless you are willing to drive 15 minutes or more to school everyday. The public transportation situation is pretty good but not always a safe option, especially at night. There are tons of areas for shopping around Towson and great night life. The parking situation can be a difficult one on and off campus. There are not enough parking spaces for commuter students and some apartment complexes only have on-street parking. The apartments around the area that are affordable are most likely in a bad area of town.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The price is high for a one bedroom, but a two bedroom with a roommate is very affordable.

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.
