Off-Campus Housing: I'm not too familiar with off campus housing options, sorry.

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of choices and you must be 21+ to live off campus if you have a scholarship.

Off-Campus Housing: All of the staff is extremely helpful. The houses have an older style but are very large and well priced.

Off-Campus Housing: No one besides non traditional students and students who live in the area with family seem to truly live off campus. Most off campus students live in housing owned by the school about a block away from the campus. These houses provide a danger of isolation that many find themselves in. The distance causes many people to drive from their house or walk. Of course, campus safety is always willing to take you home if you need it. The actual houses are also in much better condition that the apartments owned by the school.

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a duplex apartment. My neighbors are extremely nice and the community around it makes me feel safe when I leave my family for classes.
I am not certain about apartments that are used for students sharing rent, as I live with my wife.
My landlord owns several other apartments in the area, and offers EXTREMELY affordable houses. She is extremely nice and reasonably available to her clients. She is not invasive.

On the other hand, for those of you single students, I highly recommend spending a year or two living on campus. They have excellent living conditions and it is easier for you to be apart of the Lyon Community. It is not a chance you should miss. There is ALWAYS something going on at Lyon. Just remember to study.

As for those of you who MUST commute, do not forget to spend a few hours at Lyon, outside of your classes. Do NOT be a recluse. It will not hurt your studies and it will give your brain a MUCH NEEDED break. The people at Lyon are more than accepting and strive to pull the commuters into the wonderful Lyon atmosphere. I love spending my off hours with my family on Lyon's campus. There are places to have picnics, go on a walk/hike, or just hang out with your friends that you WILL make. There are also plenty of events such as sports competitions, art shows, club events, and Frat/Sor outreach.
