4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The college does not affiliate with any off-campus housing and it is relatively difficult to live off campus unless you are over 21. There are many apartments in the area that are relatively affordable and work with students if you can get the premission to live off campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus housing isn't very hard to find. But before you make the big move, you first need to apply and be approved by campus housing to live off campus. While most students generally tend to live on campus, it is sometimes worth it to live off campus because of the money you will save. Staying on campus also keeps you in "the loop" more about what's going on around campus. 

In terms of off-campus living arrangements, students live in both apartments and houses. Apartments are around $650 a month for a single bedroom and not much more for a double bedroom. Apartments and houses are both pretty affordable to rent, and there are a good amount of choices near campus. The streets right off of campus usually have houses for rent, and as close as a block away, there is an apartment complex that some students stay in.
