4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure how the pricing is, but my friends who live in town are really happy with living off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I believe it is pretty expensive but good place to live.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends on where you set up shop. Honestly.

Locals don't take too kindly to partying on Washington Avenue, Mount Vernon, or Kent Circle, which are the only "good" neighborhoods next to campus. You could try your luck closer to High Street, but you're trading square-footage and convenience for a more intimate space further from campus. You could also try across Washington Avenue on Philosopher's Terrace, or any of the neighborhoods over there, but again, you're trading away convenience for a bit more treacherous of a walk, crossing several busy roads on the way to campus. Whatever floats your boat!

Mount Vernon, Kent Circle, and W Campus Avenue have scarce parallel parking, and driveways are not a guarantee. Washington Avenue is better for parking. You can also just leave your car on-campus if you can't find parking close to your housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus housing is ok but I don't have any desire to live off campus because the houses aren't that great and it's not really worth the money.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lived off campus my sophomore year and it was great but was expensive and had a lot of distractions. Won't do it again
