3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not help people find apartments and other types of off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: only been in one and it was nice for what he paid for, but very few options and it was a better deal than the dorms off campus living is rare at Nichols, other than commuters

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Commuter parking is really good but make sure you have a pass or you will get a ticket.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Depending upon where you reside, it can easy or a total nightmare.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You can find relatively cheap apartments but most of them are 10-20 minute drives from the school which isn't so bad, but there isn't anything really walkable. Webster isn't known to be a great neighborhood, but I don't think many people expect much near colleges. Southbridge seems alittle better but it is also alittle farther. We almost moved off campus but decided to stay because the senior dorms are very nice.
