STUDENT HOUSING RESOURCES

Thinking about making the move off-campus? Before you ditch the dorms, there are a few things you need to be considering!

WHAT TYPE OF OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Once you know what you can afford to pay, it’s time to think about what type of a living situation would be the best fit for your social, economic and academic needs. Most college students choose to live with roommates in a shared house or apartment. Sharing the cost of rent, utilities, and household needs will help keep costs down. If you’re someone who prefers a quiet place to study and unwind, living alone in an apartment might be better if you are able to afford it.
