Off-Campus Housing: It depends. Pretty pricey for safe/convenient/near campus neigborhoods

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing generally means simply finding an apartment on your own. UNO doesn't have any agreements with housing, but there are a ton of cheap housing all over the town so it isn't too bad. Generally, Gentilly and Lakeview tends to be pricy, so most people end up living in the Metairie area or Mid-town. Rent is around 350-450 a month if you have roomates, but make sure you check out where you live as there are areas where a lot of crime occur. However, this is usually fights between gangs and such, so you can usually avoid it as long as you check out the place beforehand.

Off-Campus Housing: There is alot of variety not to far from the school, but the houses are not always of the best quality. There are a few gems to be found if your timing is right.

Off-Campus Housing: It fairly cheap near campus, but the houses are not very safe. If you move about a 10 minute drive away, however the houses are very nice and the neighborhoods are much more safe.
