5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived off campus every year that I have been in college station and love it! We have off campus parking, aren't too far from the bus stop, and its super affordable. I live in a house, but most apartments are easy to work with and ready to help.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most Texas A&M students start off living in a dorm and then upgrade to an off-campus apartment or a house. Living off campus has its advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, you get your own personal space, a kitchen, and a living a room, so it’s practically a home. But, on the other hand, you will have to pay your own utility bills and deal with finding transportation to school.

There are hundreds of apartments near campus, all at reasonable rates. Some students prefer to live in cheaper houses in Bryan, but this means they have to sacrifice the convenience of living close to campus. Many students say the best option is to try to get a house close to campus, so you won’t have to search for parking on campus. Plsu, the bus system is pretty good, and there are routes from most apartments to different spots on campus. Obviously the choice is yours, but remember that any place, big or small, can be called home.
