Off-Campus Housing: I live far away from school, but from friends that live near the campus, those are the ratings

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and the apartments are well located with respect to the university and the price is reasonable

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Everything depends on the area you live in. The East has the most going on (malls, restaurants, etc.) and is fairly descent pricing.The West is pretty expensive, but worth the price and closer to the school. North East is away from everything and has a mix price range.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live in my parents house.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The reason why I didn't select a rating is because I live off-campus with my parents so I feel like I cannot give a completely accurate answer. However, I do know that off-campus housing does vary. There are some small apartments right across the Academic Building and they are at a very affordable price. There are also more apartments around the area and they seem to be okay.

An abundance of apartments is located near campus. It is not a difficult task to find housing, with various locations within a 15-minute drive. Similar to the way students network with jobs, it's also advisable for students to network with housing. Off-campus students will often give prospective off-campus students suggestions on good deals around campus.

Students should definitely visit the locations between Mesa Street and Mesa Hills Street, Mesa Street and Festival Street, and Mesa Street and Sunland Park Drive. The quality of apartments is very fitting for young students, providing them with a memorable experience. Students are encouraged to have roommates to defray costs, giving students some extra money in their pockets. However, students are advised to choose roommates wisely. Off-campus housing should be taken into serious consideration if a student is able to afford it.
