Where Should I Live During College? How to Decide…

There are over 18 million college students throughout the United States.  Along with seeking out higher education, all these students have another large thing in common — they need somewhere to live. Does the thought of fighting for a place to live with 18 million students terrify you? Don't worry, there are plenty of options available!  If you're getting ready for college and are asking, "Where do I live once I go?" We're here to help. Here's how to decide where you should live during college. On-Campus Housing When you picture the quintessential college living situation, you probably picture dorms.  Dorms are large buildings on campus divided into many small dorm rooms. Dorms are great for freshmen or transfer students who want to immerse themselves in campus life. The dorm building you're housed in will determine the cost, the number of roommates, and amenities.  In a dorm, you'll have the convenience of living directly on campus and having countless social opportunities. The drawbacks are the size of the rooms and the fact that most have shared bathrooms. You'll also have to abide by your campus' dorm rules, which can include guest restrictions and forbid alcohol regardless of age.  Off-Campus Housing Want to find a place to live near campus but don't want to deal with a dorm room? There are off-campus housing options.  Real estate gurus have taken advantage of the fact that thousands of college students need somewhere to live each year. Because of this, there are plenty of apartment complexes near most college campuses.  Many of these apartment complexes are resort quality, like this Tallahassee student housing complex. You'll find pools, gyms, basketball courts, and public transportation options.  There are also plenty of housing rentals rented out to college students.  While off-campus housing is roomier than dorm-life, it typically costs more and involves a longer trek to your classes every day.  Commuting From Home Living at home during college is also an option if your parents live near your chosen university. Going about college this way classifies you as a "commuter." This is the best option if you already live near the school and you want to save money. You won't have to pay for room and board through the university or pay a landlord for rent.  The drawback of commuting is the fact that you have fewer opportunities to socialize and meet your classmates. If you want to make friends, challenge yourself to stay on campus for the whole school day instead of going home between classes. Many schools have a commuting workspace where you can hang out with classmates like you between classes.  Where Do I Live During College? Wherever Feels right If you're still asking, "Where do I live during college?" the choice is simple — whichever option feels right to you.  No two college students have the exact situation, which is why there are so many living options available. Regardless of where you live, you can still have a normal college experience and do well in your studies.  Once you've decided on housing, now it's time to make the space your own.
