Off-Campus Housing: There are very little options from what I have seen.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's a safe place, there are a variety of restaurants, some of them are expensive, but there is also fast food. The cost of items, food etc varies.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home with my parents but I know a few people who have rented apartments and other off campus housing and like it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The price for living on campus is reasonable if you have a job and parking is great it's right near the main buildings of the campus. There is help everywhere but most students ignore others but sometimes you meet nice people that are super helpful.

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.
