3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There isn't much within walking distance at a good price

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There have been some safety concerns lately about certain areas. The cost is better than on campus if you can find roommates, but most of the fun is on-campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm living off campus, and I love it. You can make your home more your own so it feels like home. The prices aren't terrible, you pay for what you get.

Off-Campus Housing: Depends where you live and what you're looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Parking is awful for guests, but the transit makes it convenient for getting to campus. It's also nice that some apartments lease by room and not by the whole apartment.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at Auburn overwhelmingly prefer off-campus housing to on-campus housing. For the most part, it's convenient, relatively easy to obtain, and sometimes even cheaper than living in a dorm.

While off-campus housing is preferred, students still advise you to try living on campus for at least a year or so. When you do decide to get a place off campus, start looking early. Since off-campus housing is so popular, decent apartments, townhouses, and condos can fill up just as quickly as the dorms do.
