3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some of the residences of Holly Springs are not friendly.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Finding a house or apartment in Holly Springs is hard. Most of the places are either filled or the rent is too much. But all the apartments are walking distance from the campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Holly Springs is very small so everyone knows each other,we don't really have too much to worry about.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Our school have on-campus dormitory. I feel we need off campus apartments for students who need to work and provide for themselves, like myself. the living off campus is fare but very rare and available to students.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not Worth It – To me living off campus is a waste. The apartments are too far from the school and are not in there best condition. The better housing you would have to drive and not everyone has a car to do so.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus housing is affordable, but it's not always in the best condition. It's best to have two or three roommates to split the rent to reduce costs. Some of the houses are too far from campus and would not be an affordable move for students who do not have cars. The houses or apartments are not always in the best neighborhoods, either, which is especially rough for those who have children.

For women that enroll at Rust and do have children, they have the option to stay off campus or in the special dorms for women who have children, which are somewhat off campus. These mothers have the option to their own dorm rooms and privacy. This is a good option to have because a child should not stop students from going to college. There are day care and bus systems for children, too.
