3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I used to have a campus apartment and it was pretty awful. The landlords signed me into a lease that had weird conditions to it (which, I admit, I should have read more carefully before signing), the appliances were full of insect larvae upon check in and they don't actually CLEAN the apartments before you move in. Also, the walls are paper thin...

Off-Campus Housing: I was horrified when I did walk throughs here, there was garbage in the parking lots and up the walkways. It was like no one cared about anything. Then when we got inside some of the occupied units I couldn't believe they would show me these apartments in that state, I was horrified and I am sure they saw it on my face. One unit had a pile of garbage inside which made me think they would definitely have a bug problem. These units were 1 bedrooms for over $500, in a small town? Really? It was terrible, and the whole time I was not nearly close enough to campus to ever bike or walk, the closer we got the worse the conditions got. I would recommend living the next town over and commuting.

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is super affordable and very close to campus but they affordable for a reason. Why? Because they are not in the best of conditions. But I must say they are a step up from the dorms and being away from campus rules is an added bonus.

Off-Campus Housing: Because Montevallo is a town that primarily caters to the University and its students, there is plenty of housing surrounding the campus, much of which is within walking distance. However some may find it difficult to snag the nicer apartments and houses quickly enough, and they may be left with only expensive or low quality alternatives.

Off-Campus Housing: tons of apartments really close to campus, and lots of opportunities to share apartments with other students
