Off-campus housing is an option for students who have completed their first full year of enrollment at OU. Some students choose to stay in campus apartments during sophomore year, but by junior year, most students are eager to move off campus and have a space that is truly their own. The tricky part in finding off-campus housing is the cost. Few students can afford housing in the immediate area around campus without a roommate to help split the cost. Some popular options include the many newly built apartment complexes in the area surrounding campus and renting single rooms in the older, pretty neighborhoods around the campus. The best housing available near campus is typically within half a mile. That close proximity to the school costs, however, and close houses or apartments are definitely the most expensive.

Best Time to Look for a Place
Many people who live in houses have leases that expire in May or early June, so then would be the best time to have a wide range of houses to choose from. Off-campus student living communities offer specials and deals throughout the year, which can lead to saving a substantial amount of money. It would be best to look around and keep an eye out for the best deal. Students should also keep in mind what is important to them when it comes to selecting an off-campus housing option—proximity to campus, pet policies, bathrooms. But there is no shortage of places to live in Norman, and one can find a house, apartment, or room at all times of the year.
