3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Havent really explored this option but a couple friends of mine have and the process can be a bit frustrating.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not a plethora of options, and the area isn't made for it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It may be cheaper but Berry will fight to keep you on campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing would probably be nice in many ways, but the college makes the process of applying for and obtaining off campus housing VERY difficult, to the point where it does not seem worth-while.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing seems like a good choice for students since on campus housing is expensive. I would rather stay on campus because of the security and proximity to classes.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Unfortunately, Berry does not allow its students to live off campus. Making all students live on campus is viewed as an attempt to build community. Students must meet one of the following qualifications to move off campus: live within 40 miles of campus, be married, be a fifth-year senior, or be 25 years or older.

However, with the recent influx of freshmen coming to Berry, Residence Life has had to allow more students the chance to live off campus. The process is long, but it is significantly cheaper to live off campus if you have roommates. Off-campus housing information is not readily available to students, but Google searches often turn up viable options.
