Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure if this is talking about the apartments Oakwood owns or apartments in general. I live in Colonial Grand and it's absolutely beautiful. The staff is very helpful if we have a problem, the neighbors are respectful. The price to live here isn't low, but it comes with perks. Garages, A pool, A gym and more. Only thing that's annoying is if you come here around like 8 pm, chances are you can't park right in front of your apartment. There's cops in here parked at different spots so safety isn't something that I worry about. The gates to the complex shut at 6 pm, so you can't get in without the code or a card.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The off-campus housing near Oakwood is relatively close and inexpensive. There are many off-campus apartments available, and the quality varies. The benefits of living off campus are that students can have a swimming pool and a nice terrace to enjoy the outdoors while still being in the comfort of their apartments. These luxuries, of course, depend on the type of apartment students get. The apartments nearby provide a comfortable living environment, and they are safe areas with little to no crime. Some apartments are near the mall, providing easy access to the many student necessities.

Students have to be 19 years old or older to live in the off-campus apartments. Many find it worth it to stay off campus because there are no fines and the apartments cost less than Oakwood’s dorm prices. Students who cannot keep up with bills or are not responsible are better staying in on-campus dorms, but students that can handle responsibilities can benefit from the off-campus lifestyle.
