3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is okay. You have to have special permission to live off campus or be a junior by hours. That is the same way for privilege housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I feel like it would be cool to live off campus, a lot of the rules would go away like curfew. This neighborhood is safe for the most part and houses do go up for rent often. I don't know if the school actually helps you with it or if your on your own with that. But I do know they make it hard for you to live off campus by age, and hours etc...

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to move off campus when they reduce your scholarships for doing so.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Freshmen are required to live on campus, and although the handbook states that an undergraduate student must be either 23 or married in order to live off campus, many exceptions are made to this rule, often involving a student's GPA and good behavior.

There are several places to live off campus that are relatively close to the school. Many teachers buy houses to rent out to students for very cheap prices, and students can also live in a few apartment complexes near campus. However, most students stay on campus and live in dorms or the senior apartments. Very few students will pay the extra money to live off campus and provide their own furnishings and food.
