Off-Campus Housing: No too bad, pricing is decent. I stay on campus so there's not much input I can add.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm guessing that the off-campus housing is okay, seeing that I don't stay off campus, and from what others have told me off-campus housing is nice

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments in Elizabeth City are primarily low but the cost of living can add up. Living off campus would mean also buying your own food, and traveling back anf forth from home to school. The surrounding apartments are for low income families, some students can get these apratments however most end up in the same two to three complexes. The best solution is staying on campus, but many students just want the money associated with refund checks for moving off campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing isnt really an option since the school is in a small town located in near a navalo base in the middle of nowhere its not really apartment friendly. People who lives in apartments or housing there would basically have to been born and raised in the Elizabeth City.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students would prefer to stay off campus, if possible. It would guarantee them a larger refund check and independence. Living off campus allows students to become more responsible and receive a better experience of living independently. Students seem to think that living off campus is quite worth it because they get to live by their own rules without a visitation curfew or dormitory checks.

Most students do stay on campus because there are not a lot of affordable living arrangements in Elizabeth City. Housing for students in Viking Village and Microtel Inn & Suites cost about twice as much as regular housing than other dorms on campus. If students want the best housing, they have to pay more for residence living. Overall, students have plenty of options for housing during the housing application process. The process consists of students paying a deposit fee of $125, and then they are capable of selecting their particular dorm for the school year.
