Off-Campus Housing

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus in Crossings. The parking situation there is terrible, but the complex itself is decent and not too expensive.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Best locations are new street and anything off north main street. Either way you're gonna have to walk to campus, but it's close.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have not lived off campus, but older friends make it seem like there are plenty of off campus housing options. Landlords are easy to get along with and if you have a group of friends living together, price is split 4-6 different ways.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The Mandatory Housing Agreement at Rowan is what kills everything but the actually housing at The Crossings is fair and pretty nice looking. It's where I plan to live when I partake in part time. They've been really good about helping me and my boyfriend get into an apartment.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a second semester freshman. I won't have experience with off-campus housing for another year and a half.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Despite the fact that there is no nightlife in Glassboro, it's still a college town, so if you begin having fantasies of the violent variety toward your roommates, maybe off-campus housing is for you. However, for anyone thinking of moving off campus, pricing will be an issue. If you live with your parents, that is one thing, but as expensive as on-campus housing is at Rowan, off-campus housing is just as bad, if not worse. Therefore, many students decide to stay on campus because they would end up paying the same amount to live off campus when factoring in utilities, food, and other independent essentials.

For students who still want to live off campus, no matter the price, there are several apartment buildings available, in addition to homes that students can rent, which are great for hosting parties. However, getting a roommate is generally the only way to afford off-campus housing, which defeats the purpose if you are looking for an alternative to having a roommate.
