After Bellarmine University
- Very Good230
Bellarmine holds a housing fair that brings in different apartment companies/landlords/etc. for students considering living off-campus. However, some of these tend to be a little expensive. If you're just looking for a basic apartment with a few friends, there are also little books laid out around campus that advertise apartments and houses. The Highlands where Bellarmine is situated is a pretty safe area. Most apartments and houses have street parking. Sharing an apartment 5 minutes away from the campus with three other people, I'm paying about 230 a month in rent, not including internet, electric, and food. This is much cheaper than living on-campus!

The campus is beautiful and in a good location in Louisville with great resources to help students succeed in college, but this school is really really expensive! I wish it was cheaper so that I could continue attending this university but it's way too much for me to pay for.

The school mainly focuses on academics, but the Knights Nation has a large following. Knights Nation is the students support group for BU sports. The students really enjoy going to the basketball games. Most sports are division II, but students regularly go to sporting events. Most student athletes are majoring in difficult subjects such as business, or the sciences. The faculty makes it easy for student athletes to balance school and sports. School spirit is relatively high. Students create signs and banners to show support. The athletic facilities are really good and helpful.
