Off-Campus Housing: If you do not put in the work for finding an off campus house then you will have a lot of difficulty. Residential life does not really help find off campus housing but they do make it very easy to be approved to move off campus. Not too many students move off campus so I am assuming that is why Res life does not really provide too much information on that. When I lived off campus my sophomore year I had a lot of difficulty finding a cheap place to live that is close to campus. I couldn't get close to campus because it was pretty expensive living alone. I couldn't find a roommate because most of my friends are athletes and have their housing paid for by the school.

Off-Campus Housing: The water front property in Bridgeport is historically toxic due to over pollution from industrial waste in the area. The gentrification is evident in the type of industry within the city. The off-campus housing is expensive due to a variety of reasons. For example the high taxes the city pays due to large government funding which has been historically exploited by corrupt politicians that manipulate gaps in legislation therefore continuing the cycle of high taxes. Although in the immediate area of the university of Bridgeport seems somewhat o.k. to the naked eye, slum lords and poverty is a major issue in the demographic area.
