College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't participate in Concordia's off-campus housing. I live with my parents.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some close, cheap places. They aren't the safest.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can rent a house, but you're not allowed to live off campus until your 3rd year. There aren't many options for apartments off-campus, so your best bet is to find friends to rent a house with.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I never plan to live off-campus

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students are required to live on campus for their freshman and sophomore years. However, during junior and senior years, a decent amount of Concordia students choose to live off campus due to the lack of housing reserved only for upperclassmen. Walk anywhere within a five block radius of the campus, and there is somewhat affordable housing that students can rent.

There are many options for off-campus housing, and it gives students an opportunity to get a taste of "real life" by living independently with a few friends. The price of houses off campus will vary depending on how close the house is located to the school. Obviously the houses nearest Concordia are more expensive than the ones blocks away, but all off-campus living is generally a bit cheaper than living in the dorms. There is a lot of housing surrounding the campus, but students sometimes have problems finding the right place to live.
