Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. I get to have my car with me and there's plenty of parking at my complex. I have my own room. It's actually cheaper than living on campus and having a meal plan.

Off-Campus Housing: I live in the dorms now, but next year I'll be living in an apartment. It's a little difficult to find reasonably priced off campus housing in College Station if you don't have four roommates. My roommate and I were looking for a two bedroom apartment and we were eventually successful. The apartment we chose has a gate and feels very safe. The rent is reasonable and the facility is very nice. It's close to two different bus stops and the mall. Overall there are a variety of different places to live off campus in College Station depending on what you're looking for.

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus, however I've heard it is a new experience all by itself. There are several good places to live at and youu have the freedom to eat home cooked meals every night..

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is cheaper than living on campus! Plus there's more freedom, such as being able to have pets. Plus, if you pick correctly, the noise levels are also much quieter off campus. There's also the matter of having a fridge and oven to yourself, and your own room-- these things are important for people who desperately need their own space in order to function!

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.
