Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing offers many options to choose from. Some options are on the low end of the rope when it comes to safety, parking, and quality, but these are generally the choices that are very cheap. The availability of the more sought for options is a good fare if you apply early enough. Availability is a problem only later during the Spring semester.

Off-Campus Housing: From stories I hear from my friends and classmates, I was lucky with my apartment that I found. It is right off of campus, so close that I can still use the wifi and walk to class on most days. Parking is fairly easy on my road, Lake Avenue, and my landlord is pretty helpful and nice. The cost is a bit pricey but worth the extra amnetites like laundry, own room, kitchen, and AC.

Off-Campus Housing: Evolve is the newest apartments we have close to campus and they are gorgeous and not at all far from campus. I'd highly recommend staying there.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students choose to move off campus after one year of living in the dorms. Luckily, Knoxville provides many different options in terms of price, location, and comfort. In general, it is best to start searching as early as you can. Many of the more popular apartments actually have waiting lists and are difficult for the unprepared to rent from, so be sure to pick up free brochures and apartment guides so you will know the details.

The rules for freshman living arrangements are rather elaborate. Unless you are commuting from a dwelling with a relative, you are required to live in the dorms. Make the best of this by meeting as many people as possible and enjoying your first year. Living in an apartment comes with many responsibilities and expenses, but can be much more enjoyable in later college years.
