3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: In Newark, there is a lot of cheap housing near campus, but it doesn't seem very safe. If you travel a bit farther, Hoboken, Jersey City, Weehawken, and Union City are still near enough by train/bus but much nicer with a lot more to do.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is the either the same price or cheaper then dorming.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments up university avenue and James street.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You can find a lot of cheap options, but the surrounding areas may be dangerous. Plus, some of the housing isn't high quality. That said, you probably won't overpay.
