2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Don't know too much about it

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: At Ripon College you are required to live on campus all four years.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Just terrible there is not real off campus housing unless you travel as I do.

1 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: In order to live off-campus, you need to be married and/or have children; live at home within 20 miles (or some other distance); are a formerly deployed veteran; or petition to live off-campus. I know people who have petitioned and it's not the worst process, but it's a lot to go through in order to be allowed to live off campus by the school.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Students are generally required to live on campus all four years. The only ways a student can live off of campus is if they have a spouse, a child or live with his/her parents.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There really isn't off-campus housing for students. Ripon College is a residential school, and the College makes it really difficult to live anywhere but on campus. There are a few students who live off campus, but that is because they have family in the area or are transfer students.

However, it really is beneficial to live on campus because that's where everything takes place. All of the events and activities happen on campus anyway, so it's best to be there!
