College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live near the campus and do not know anyone who does. As such I can not comment of this subject.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I live on-campus, but would like to live off-campus. Having a hard time finding a place that is good quality, close, and safe. - and inexpensive.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus can be better then living on campus cause you don't feel so limited and you can share a house with four roommates instead of one. Pricing becomes cheaper when you room with friends and it gives you the ability to get away from school and enjoy the city.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I find some prices to be exceedingly high

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not recommend off-campus housing. Although there are apartments around the outside of the campus that have special deals for students. However the area around the campus isn't that safe and the public transportation in Las Vegas is terrible.

Housing is both easy and difficult to obtain in Las Vegas; it just depends on how high your ambitions are. If you’re looking to rent alone or with a roommate, finding housing can be a fairly simple process. Many people who need a roommate post ads on bulletin boards located all over campus and specify exactly what kind of roommate they’re looking for. If you need a place for yourself, there are plenty of apartments to the north and east of the campus that are within quick walking distance from UNLV, while to the west you can find some that are about a five-to ten-minute walk away. Prices are pretty decent compared to most other large cities, and the closeness of the Strip can keep you entertained yearlong.

If you’re looking to buy something, go for it. Condominium prices have plummetted in price in recent years. The housing market once boomed in Las Vegas in the late ‘90s, when moving to Las Vegas became the thing to do. Now there's a nice range of choices for potential buyers. Many apartment renters have had trouble around the Valley, as a lot of apartments have been converted into condos, leaving the lower-income market somewhat lacking when it comes to space available. Either way, the vast majority of students who live off campus live either with family (if they’re local) or in a rental. With some hunting, you're bound to find the right match. If money is tight, you'll probably need to get a roommate or two.
