3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing options themselves are really great, but it can be hard to get them, some of them are very high in price, and sometimes parking can be bad. I think the prices should be lowered a little especially since off campus housing houses most upperclassmen.

Off-Campus Housing: I only know one person who lives off campus, but the school helped him find a place and the school provides a shuttle to pick up as well.

Off-Campus Housing: I personally haven't lived off campus, but i have heard horror stories from other people. Most of everyone who really enjoys their housing section lives on campus, to live off campus you're really ostracized from the university and most people try and transfer back on campus or transfer.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many students like to live on campus. There is "off-campus housing" but it is owned by the university. It just means that the students are a little bit further away from campus. No one lives outside of the neighborhood near campus.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: everyone lives on campus or in campus owned housing

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus housing at High Point is pretty much nonexistent. The University provides students housing for all four years, and almost no one chooses not to live in it. If you do choose to move off campus, then it’s fairly hard to find housing close to campus. Also, the area immediately surrounding the High Point campus isn’t the best of areas. To find an affordable and safe place to live, you definitely have to travel a little farther. For this reason, almost 100 percent of students choose to remain on campus for four years. Another reason students choose to stay on campus is because the housing is nicer and more affordable than renting a house. On-campus housing is either brand-new or recently renovated. Also, with a plethora of different expense levels for housing after freshman year, it’s not hard to find something in your price range.

For students who want more freedom than what on-campus living can offer, High Point does have other “off-campus” options that are still through student housing. The Village, U-Ville, townhomes, and Terrace apartments are all technically “off campus,” but they are still gated and protected by campus security.
