The Office of Residential Life has a database that students can use to search for off-campus apartments. Living off campus as an upperclassman can offer many benefits. Students can still have involvement on campus with the events that are scheduled, but they also have the luxury of living with their friends in an off-campus location where it can be closer to jobs or internships they may be taking. Most if not all of the houses and apartments that do get rented out are also at a discount for the students of the University so that they can still afford it.

Best Time to Look for a Place
For most students that leave for the summer, the best time would be during the spring semester before they plan on living off campus. Otherwise, summer would probably be one of the best times as it is right before and students can start moving in before school starts.
