3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus options in Both Athens and Beckley. Better in Beckley.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Landlords jack up the prices for poor quality places, thinking students won't know/be able to afford any better and actually use threats/intimidation among other shady tactics when they speak out. If you can find a decent landlord, good job. If not, move outside the area but close enough to drive/catch the bus to campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of options. You can either live in North Towers (girls), South Towers (boys), Wilson (girls), Woodel (boys) or at some limited apartments a few miles away, or commute.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school takes away grants if you live off campus.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are no options unless you want to live in a bad part of town or have a lot of money to waste on a place.
