1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No off-campus housing available whatsoever. There are apartments which feel a bit more "off-campus" but are in fact still on the college campus. Not a bad thing at all though--the community it promotes here is amazing.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing available. Unless you are a commuter or you are married.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When it comes to off-campus housing at GCC, the overall gist is simple—It doesn’t exist. Only students who live at home and commute, "live off campus." Now, whether or not it other students should be allowed is always a debate among the student body.

Some students like the closeness and community that a residence school demands. Others feel that the independence would be healthier, and that commuters would feel more welcome as a part of the school if other people were off campus as well. Whatever the students think, rules are rules.
