Off-Campus Housing: Haven't had to look for off campus housing but my friends have and they say it's somewhat a challenge but I think if you email /call the right person at UConn they will help you a lot.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus apartments are where the major parties take place, so you can imagine what the inside of these apartments looks like. On-campus apartments are hard to get, so a lot of people opt to get one off campus. This requires you to have a car, even though there is an apartment shuttle bus that goes to Celeron and Carriage (the two most popular off-campus apartments). If you want to party on the weekends and don’t mind the noise, it’s a great place to live.  

However, there are lots of other apartment options farther away from campus (a couple of miles at most). Parking is definitely better when you live off campus and commute, too. On-campus apartments like Hilltop and Charter Oak are nicer and better choices if you don’t have a car. There are many apartments around campus to choose from, so do your research to find the best one and best location for you.
