Living off campus while attending Savannah State University is an option available to students, but it is not required of students to live off campus. It is not required for students to live on campus as freshmen, either. It is pretty easy to find an apartment off campus for an affordable price, as long as you plan ahead and search early.
More students stay on campus because it's easier to stay involved and get to things available on campus promptly. Off-campus housing is within a five-mile radius and is nicely accommodated. A disadvantage of staying off campus is your involvement around campus. Suppose you only have classes on Tuesday and Thursday; you probably won't come to campus Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Eventually, your tiger pride will fade, so stay involved.
