Living off campus is awesome—though, it definitely requires responsibility. Grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and paying bills are all in one's own hands; for some students, these tasks are too daunting to justify the move away from dorms and the dining hall.
There are many options for off-campus housing, though some are better than others. Some students opt to live in the affordable Southside Terrace Apartments, a kind of rundown apartment complex. Others find a group of friends to rent a house with. Students can pay as little as $450 or as much as $700 per month, depending on the location (prices rise depending on how close the house is to campus) and number of roommates (the more, the cheaper!).
