3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of houses that rent to seniors, people over 21, and married couples near campus, but before meeting one of these requirements, you cannot live off campus. Freshman and Sophomores are required to live in the dorms, and Juniors and Seniors can live in apartments on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know anything about off campus housing other than it is cheaper than living in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It just depends on what you get, the school only allows 21+ off campus though

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is much cheaper than the on student apartments for seniors. Many students have off campus houses that they pass down through the years, so they have a reputation as being a student house in the community. There are lots of options and almost all students who live off campus are less than a mile from school, so commuting is very easy.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't have personal experience with acquiring off campus housing yet, but am aware of the support the school provides.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Although there is relatively reasonable housing to rent within a mile or less of campus, most upperclassmen choose to live in the campus apartments, which are quite nice and conveniently located. Since there is so much happening on campus, with various events, students choose to live nearby. Also, off-campus housing is not available for underclassmen, as there is a requirement for freshmen and sophomores to live on campus (unless a student is commuting from his or her parents'/guardians' house).

There are seven apartments referred to as "the suburbs," which are College-owned, quite new, and reserved for upperclassmen who have a minimum of 62 credit hours. Although living off campus gives students freedom and independence, many students feel that the community and social environment are much better on or near campus, and that it is easier to stay connected to friends. Students recommend to either live in the dorms or live in the "suburbs" owned by the College, since they are both close to campus. You don't want to miss the social scene, which is a large part of college life.
