Off-Campus Housing: The neighborhood is not great, there are usually lots of criminal activity, the cost can vary, locations are usually an okay distance, parking can be a hassle, and as for the availability and landlords, there are average compared to other cities.

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived on campus for my entire experience here, but some of my friends live in reasonably-priced housing about two minutes from campus. It's possible to live pretty cheaply off campus, but if you don't want to deal with the expense of owning a car or give up the convenience of being a five to ten-minute walk from campus, then campus living is probably the better option.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you're a graduate student or live close to campus, you can utilize this. If not, you're out of luck.

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live on temple street

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The growing trend at the University of Hartford is that students live on campus their freshman year and move off campus as an upperclassman. The most popular place for students living off campus is Temple Street Apartments. Although many make the common mistake of thinking these apartments are affiliated with the University, they are not. Many University of Hartford students live there because the apartments are affordable and close to campus. Rent there or just about anywhere in the area averages about $900 to $1,200 a month. The apartments are conveniently located in Downtown Hartford and are about 15 minutes from campus.

Many students also live in the popular Clemens Place, which is also in Hartford and about the same distance from campus as Temple Street. Many students say that living off campus is less expensive than living on campus, and many have roommates in order to split costs. Students say they like living off campus because there’s a freedom and personal space that they just cannot feel on campus.
