Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

An abundance of apartments is located near campus. It is not a difficult task to find housing, with various locations within a 15-minute drive. Similar to the way students network with jobs, it's also advisable for students to network with housing. Off-campus students will often give prospective off-campus students suggestions on good deals around campus.

Students should definitely visit the locations between Mesa Street and Mesa Hills Street, Mesa Street and Festival Street, and Mesa Street and Sunland Park Drive. The quality of apartments is very fitting for young students, providing them with a memorable experience. Students are encouraged to have roommates to defray costs, giving students some extra money in their pockets. However, students are advised to choose roommates wisely. Off-campus housing should be taken into serious consideration if a student is able to afford it.
