Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is pretty nice but it is only available for upper class-man.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There isn't too much Available however whatever is available is close to campus and close to shopping center. The school is mostly A commuter school so i don't believe they need any more housing anyways.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Approximately two-thirds of the student body at Elmhurst lives off campus. Many students are commuters, and by the time most students are juniors, they are usually kicked out of the dorms anyway. There are many off-campus living options in the area, but the price and convenience vary considerably. The College offers nine houses, which house 36 students, and three apartment complexes: Elm Park, Elmhurst Terrace, and Prospect Apartments. Elm Park and Prospect Apartments are on campus but only house about 30 students each. Elmhurst Terrace is less than a mile from campus and is a much larger complex.

The College provides a shuttle service every 15 minutes between the apartments on campus, so a car really isn’t a necessity if you live there. The College is usually pretty helpful with the off-campus housing they provide. If you want other choices, you’re mostly on your own, and non-campus off-campus housing typically requires a car.
