Off-Campus Housing: Not many students live off campus, and most who do live close to campus. Fraternity houses are counted as off-campus housing.

Off-Campus Housing: Its expensive, a long walk in the cold and not very safe

Off-Campus Housing: From friends that live off campus, I know that they have like their experiences. However, I chose to stay on campus for all four years, so I do not know anything about the process.

Off-Campus Housing: Really does depend on how you're accustomed to living. I'm currently living in a two bedroom apt just steps off campus, which I love. There are also houses available on streets parallel to campus, but the waiting list is long. Incredibly cost efficient.

Off-Campus Housing: Great setup, awful locations. Dangerous locations...

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Those who live off campus, for the most part, live directly off campus—no more than a block away from the dorms. You don't save much money by renting an off-campus apartment, and you miss out on important things like an Ethernet connection, cable TV, and convenience and safety benefits. Because students choose to live so closely, they don't lose out on much of the community feel of Trinity, nor do they receive a greater feeling of independence or individuality.

The only real reason to live off-campus is if you live in a sorority or fraternity house. Those are located on Allen Place, a block from Vernon Place, a main street of Trinity's campus. Each year, several people will also rent houses or apartments on Crescent Street, which is the same street that houses the notorious Sophomore Slums.
