Off-Campus Housing: I have never experienced off-campus living. I've lived on Point Park's campus for the last three years. However, I know plenty of people that live off-campus. There are many that live Downtown in nearby apartments while some live in apartments and houses in Oakland. There are also students who venture out to Squirrel Hill and Shadyside to live. The prices for off-campus housing varies depending on locations and the landlords. Some people have a great experience depending on where they live while others don't.

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.
