Off-Campus Housing: I found a place off campus but it was not easy.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived off campus for two years now and I love it. Finding a place to live is not exactly the easiest, and the school doesn't offer much help other than giving you the phone number of a local real estate agent. The pros to living off campus are: its cheaper than paying for university housing and a meal plan, you can cook whatever you want or order out if you would rather, there are usually no strict drinking or party rules, its not hard to find parking, and the parking pass for school is free. Literally the only con is that the parking on campus is limited so you better leave early because you'll be driving around looking for a spot for a decent amount of time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Office of Residential Life has a database that students can use to search for off-campus apartments. Living off campus as an upperclassman can offer many benefits. Students can still have involvement on campus with the events that are scheduled, but they also have the luxury of living with their friends in an off-campus location where it can be closer to jobs or internships they may be taking. Most if not all of the houses and apartments that do get rented out are also at a discount for the students of the University so that they can still afford it.

Best Time to Look for a Place
For most students that leave for the summer, the best time would be during the spring semester before they plan on living off campus. Otherwise, summer would probably be one of the best times as it is right before and students can start moving in before school starts.
