Off-Campus Housing: not sure yet bc still live on campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Retreat seemed like a really good option, but I don't like how far it is from campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: As a student that does not live up there I do not know what the housing situation would be for on-campus students.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The cost for renting a room in Newark is reasonable. It is quite easy to find the suitable room. The landlord can be nice, it depends on what kind of person you met.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: the process of finding an off campus place starts so early in the year prior as a freshman looking to live off campus for sophomore year you have to decide who you want to live with and where you want to live before you're even totally comfortable with campus

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Nearly all students move off campus after their sophomore year into one of the options surrounding campus. UD students have nearly taken over all of the neighborhoods around campus, much to the dismay of the few remaining elderly residents who maliciously call the cops for any late-night noise. Options range from apartment complexes to houses, old and new. Some houses are extremely run-down, and students planning on partying hard usually look for these houses on purpose. Other students generally find something at least nicer than the dorms.

While most students find off-campus housing a more enjoyable experience than the dorms, you have to be careful about where you live. Certain areas are more dangerous than others, and some are considered Party Central. All the best places go first, so it's important to start looking early. Some students have had major issues with bad landlords who refuse to fix broken pipes and air conditioners and try to take advantage of them. There are also some very strict rules in the Newark standard lease that are worth paying careful attention to before signing.
