Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is off-campus housing, but the majority of students remain on campus for all four years. It is a four-year residential college, so trying to move off campus can be difficult. Not only do students have to apply to move off campus, which affects need-based financial aid, but the area has few options for nearby apartments. The area isn’t prepared to handle a mass of students living off campus.

One popular option for off-campus housing is Peach Alley Court. The apartment complex is off of Main Street and isn’t a very far walk and an even shorter drive to the college. Living off campus is generally affordable, especially with roommates.

Best Time to Look for a Place
Students are not allowed to live off campus until their senior year, sometimes their junior year if they get special permission. If students plan on living off campus for either of these years, it's best to start searching at least six months prior to the move-in date. However, students should be sure to OK the living situation with the college prior to searching for off-campus living.
Popular Areas
The most popular areas are the SDLCs, which are located on the streets surrounding the college, and the Peach Alley Court apartments, which are about a 10-minute walk away in downtown Elizabethtown, just on the other side of Market Street.
