3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Oakland is a place where you get what you pay for. A neighborhood filled with nothing but college students tends to be a little wild, but it's a good time. Landlords are decent. Pretty safe area.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I can only afford to live off-campus, and from living in a run-down area of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh isn't that bad!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They want yo to be very comfotable attending the campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Its okay, it can be a hassle at time and it can be a great choice at others. Living in oakland has its battles but its not a bad option if your looking for a cheaper alternative

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is a city campus so there are apartments nearby, but they are expensive for most college students and they are usually already taken.
