Off-Campus Housing

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Bob Jones does not allow undergrads to live off-campus unless they live with a close family member or have specific health needs that make dorm life difficult.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school requires that if a student does not have any family in town, or someone over 25, that you stay on campus. Although there are several people that do break this rule.. But they had to look for somewhere to live on their own.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is very convenient. The landlords are wonderful. The house is old, but it meets my needs.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived in or visited the interior of any of the housing options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Students have to be a certain age to even consider living off campus. For the most part, and for me, it just doesn't seem worth it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is not hard to find off-campus housing. In fact, Greenville has nice and affordable apartments. Unfortunately, the majority of students cannot enjoy this opportunity since BJU only allows students 23 years of age and older to live off campus. The off-campus students (or townies) say that it is worth it to move off campus since they do not have to follow the residence hall rules. The bedtime rule makes resident students want to rent their own apartment. However, there are benefits to living on campus. The students have easier access to labs and work. There are pros and cons to living on and off campus, but the majority of students would choose off-campus housing.

Greer is a popular area where many townies find their apartments. It is only 15 minutes away from campus, and traffic tends to be fast.
