Off-Campus Housing: I like where I live a lot, it's close to campus and cheap.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus living is expensive and not worth the effort/time to move out. It is way too expensive and not very good quality living spaces.

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of off campus housing options located near by! The cost is pretty average but it can usually be cheaper than living on campus if you do it right. The school has an off-campus website that actually helps you find housing and possibly roommates.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The off-campus housing availability near the UCO campus offers the next best thing to staying on campus. The majority of housing available off campus is affordable and located within a few blocks of campus, but some students live as far as five miles away. Not only are off-campus residents within minutes of their classes and campus resources, they are also able to actively participate in student campus life, such as annual parades and local sporting events, as well as being able to experience college in the privacy of their own homes.

While a large portion of the student body lives on campus, off-campus residents have the freedom in choosing to live alone, live with a roomate, and maintain their lifestyles practically on their own terms. Students off-campus also reside among various walks of life, such as families, children, and pets, in addition to other UCO students in these residential areas. The best part of all about staying off campus? Free and convenient parking!
