Freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus at Mount Union, and some students stay there for all four years. However, many students can't wait to move, and there are a decent number of off-campus options available. Several nearby apartment complexes, like the Glamorgan Apartments, cater to Mount students, and there are also houses available for rent in the area surrounding campus. Students say that housing is readily available and landlords are helpful and easy to deal with. Prices and other factors vary, but rates tend to be cheaper or comparable to the cost of living on campus.
There are a few downsides to moving off campus. Living in an apartment or house makes it more difficult to get to and from class, and some students say it's easy to miss out on campus events and activities. There isn't any help from the school in finding housing, either, so students are on their own in setting up living arrangements. Moving can also affect the financial aid package students receive from the University (make sure to check with the Office of Financial Aid to see how you will be impacted before making plans to move). However, for many students, the greater freedom and independence that comes with moving off campus outweighs any inconvenience.
