Off-Campus Housing: You may want to consider moving in with a group of friends for cheaper rent but that may mean reduced privacy for you. If you're fine with that then definitely try reaching out to a friend because finding a place at a reasonable price is a huge headache. Remember that you are not just in a building with college students because other adults may live in the same house or building. Landlords can be great or terrible but that varies individually.

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've seen, off campus housing is not only expensive but the apartments and houses are sketchy and because it's in a major city, you get very little space for a lot of money.

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live off-campus and I will admit it is a hassle. The cost of the house it outrageous. You are giving a parking permit, but parking is never guaranteed and really hard to stumble upon. The landlords are extremely strict and do not even let you listen to music and enjoy your day.

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive, limited and often in sketchy areas. Finding places to rent sucks due to the downtown location.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great in my opinion. You do lose a sense of community and closeness with your neighbors you have in the dorms, but you have more freedom. The prices can vary but you have a lot of options. If you start looking early enough like early may then you are sure to find a place for the upcoming school year. You could either rent a room by yourself or move into a house or apartment with roommates. You may run into some landlords who are hard to deal with but you can always find another place when your lease is up. Right now together me and my roommates pay 3000 to live down the block from campus in a 3 bedroom apartment. Its not the cheapest but it sure is convenient and i can afford it.
