Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The university offers off-campus housing for those students who chose not to live on campus. The Palisades is located right outside the campus gates for convenience towards the students. Each student who desires to live in the apartment has an opportunity to apply, and if space allows, they are granted an apartment.

Upon entrance, there are a few fees you must pay and contracts to fill out. This apartment can be paid through financial aid, and out-of-pocket rent is also permitted. If you apply before a special deadline, the Palisades offers a discount toward the rent.
