3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing fills up quickly but I haven't heard anything bad about it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not too many places to live here, which makes prices go way up.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for off-campus housing and to be honest most of them are cheaper that college housing. The trade-off is safety. Many of the off-campus apartments are not that safe and are not in good parts of town. They are also at max 5-10 minutes away from campus and some don't provide bus services.

3 College Junior

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live on Campus but will be living off campus next year in hopes of saving some money on living expenses. The options seem average for a college town but are still expensive in comparioson to other college towns.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

After freshman year, most students move off campus, generally to an apartment complex. Apartments offer more space than the dorms, and you are not required to buy a meal plan. Rent for apartments is all pretty similar, with some being more affordable than others and others being more expensive than expected. The plus side to apartment complexes in Milledgeville is that most of them come completely furnished, including appliances. However, if you are one with plenty of spare furniture at home, renting a house may be a better option for you.

Houses offer even more space with generally lower rent. You are almost guaranteed to find housing off campus, but if your heart is set on living somewhere specific, then you better sign a lease early because chances are someone else has their heart set on it, as well. Students are able to walk to campus from almost every apartment complex, and there are plenty of houses within walking distance, too.
