Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The off-campus housing options are readily available. There are a lot of different options, including apartments, houses, and condos. Availability is great, but locations are scattered. The most popular off-campus place would have to be Coastal Village, which seems like a nice place to live, as it gets really great reviews from FGCU students.

The housing costs per student range from $435 a month all the way to $800 a month. It all depends on what you are looking for, how far you want to live from campus, and how much you can afford. All of the options are very nice, as Fort Myers is generally a nice area in which to live.
