2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The near campus living here in Edmond is very highly priced for its accommodations. College students are fund limited and this needs to be brought about to the public's eye. Not every college student's parents can afford to live on campus nor close to campus at these rates. The city bus may provide needed transportation, yet the housing cost are almost unbearable while in school full time.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are quite a few off-campus housing spots. The college allows these places to advertise on their campus. The cons of living off campus is obviously not being as close to the campus buildings. A lot of the housing is pretty close to the campus though. Landlords are average and it is really safe. Parking is not a problem off campus. The cost is probably better than living on campus, and it not as strict. Dorms have a curfew for having the opposite sex in their dorm.

The off-campus housing availability near the UCO campus offers the next best thing to staying on campus. The majority of housing available off campus is affordable and located within a few blocks of campus, but some students live as far as five miles away. Not only are off-campus residents within minutes of their classes and campus resources, they are also able to actively participate in student campus life, such as annual parades and local sporting events, as well as being able to experience college in the privacy of their own homes.

While a large portion of the student body lives on campus, off-campus residents have the freedom in choosing to live alone, live with a roomate, and maintain their lifestyles practically on their own terms. Students off-campus also reside among various walks of life, such as families, children, and pets, in addition to other UCO students in these residential areas. The best part of all about staying off campus? Free and convenient parking!
