3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: they seem helpful but shuttles need to run more frequently and be on time

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off-campus, and it is a wonderful thing to be able to do. You will save money on food and housing, and the freedom helps you to feel more like an adult.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute so living off campus for me is living at home, but many of my friends plan to live off campus next year and they had no trouble at all making the transition.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some off campus housing is nice but it can be expensive. You just have to look for good prices. Living on campus is more convenient and closer to the school. It is also safer.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Everything is great about living off campus and you have more freedom than the dorms. Cons would be the cost and a meal plan is not needed. Safety is pretty good where I live no problems yet, landlords are no problem at an apartment complex I don't know anything about renting houses though. The school has fairs that help you find off-campus options which is great!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Living off campus is a choice that many Towson students make. There are many wonderful apartment complexes in proximity to the campus, but living in private homes is becoming more and more common. And students love that their options tend to be affordable and convenient. Believe it or not, though, no matter how much students love living off campus, many end up missing the dorms.

One of the best reasons for living off campus is that the majority of nearby apartments are filled with Towson students, which makes living off campus a more comfortable experience. And, although students interact with other students living off campus, this does not take away from the independent stance of living away from the dorms. Every apartment complex is different from the other—some are more like a traditional home, while other complexes tend to party a little more. The choice is yours.
