Off-Campus Housing: The school doesn't really get involved in off campus housing.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of houses close, but I don't really see very many for sale. The school likes us to stay on campus for better social life.

Off-Campus Housing: Always Felt Safe – I always felt safe in the dorms. We even left our door unlocked every once in a while and never had anything stolen.

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, so I can't really rate the off-campus housing at Ozarks.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Cheaper Than Living on Campus! It is cheaper to live off campus due to having 15 meals a week and above meal plan if you live on campus. Nobody eats in the cafeteria that often. The food is usually disgusting. There are apartments and houses available all over Clarksville that is within 10 minutes of the school.
The school offers no help in looking for off campus housing because they want you to live on campus and pay out the nose.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

According to the University Student Handbook, a student has to meet specific qualifications in order to be able to live off campus. The qualifications include: student has been on campus four semesters; student is over 21 years of age; student is a part-time or special student carrying less than 12 hours a semester; student is married or a single parent; student is living with parents/grandparents or legal guardian; or student has valid reasons with supporting professional documentation. For most students, if they have enough money to afford the housing, then it’s a great investment. Due to a lack of financial resources, the majority of students decides to live on campus at the University.

A downside to off-campus housing is some students have a full-ride scholarship at the University, so living out of the dorms would be wasting money. Searching for a house/apartment off campus can be slightly difficult, unless a person has connections and gets offered a great price for the place. There are a lot of Clarksville residents who make a business of renting houses to college students. The options of where to live near the University are plentiful, but prices determine if off-campus housing is worth it or not.
