Students who live off campus miss a huge part of Bryn Mawr life, so very few students recommend it. If you must live at home, you can be accommodated. If you want to live off campus, there are a few options. Through the Bi-College exchange, Bryn Mawr students may live at Haverford and vice versa, though this hasn’t been very popular since the 1980s. There are cheap apartments and houses for the many college students in the area. These are generally populated with Villanova students, but they are within walking distance of Bryn Mawr. Students who take many classes at UPenn might find it more convenient to live in West Philly or University City, where student housing is plentiful.
Living off campus, you will have to make an extra effort to stay in touch with the Bryn Mawr community in terms of social and extracurricular life, if you still desire to be a part of that. Since so few people live off campus, those who do are often isolated.
