Off-Campus Housing: There are so many places to stay. The landlords are very kind and try to make it the best experience for everyone.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing choices are very close to campus. Although it is technically off campus, it is right across the street which makes it time efficient. For the quality of each apartment, it is very cost effective. Living there is so convenient because of these things. There are parking lots by each apartment and there are always enough spots for everyone to have their own. The Landlords really try and make everyone feel welcome and safe which I know is very rare. Living off-campus is a great experience.

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off-campus because it makes you feel more mature and you get to do more things that on-campus students couldln't do. I have been living off-campus this past couple years and they are great. Landlords or managers also have influence on students and so it really depends on the relationship you make with your managers.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure what off-campus housing is like because I've never lived there. But I do know that it's farther away, so if you want to live there, you need a car to travel. The parking is a lot better because there are less people there. I think the cost is more, but the quality is a lot better. From what I've heard, the landlords and managers are easy to get along with and are very nice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students prefer off-campus housing because it brings a little more independence and allows for a more diverse living arrangement between upper- and lowerclassmen. Many students will sign a contract for dorms their first couple of semesters, and then they have a chance to visit some of the apartments and decide on one where they would like to live. Some students prefer living with friends and sign contracts as groups, and others sign up to be with a random group of roommates to meet new people.

Most of the apartments are similar in setup, with three rooms and one bathroom area with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks. There are options for a single room, but the majority of students opt to have shared rooms because of the lesser cost. The higher-priced apartments usually have more options for shared rooms and more modern appliances and design, as well. Typically, women’s housing is better kept than men's housing. But all student-approved housing has regular "clean checks" that ensure students are keeping their apartments clean. The apartments also enforce the Honor Code when students sign their semester/two-semester contract. Students can also save a little money by signing a contract for two semesters instead of one.
