Tips for Choosing Between On and Off-Campus Housing

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

For college students, choosing housing is almost as important as choosing a major. Generally, there are two basic housing options: on-campus or off-campus. Most students don’t know how to choose between the two, causing many to settle.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

However, there are some considerations that can prevent settling on either of these housing options. Below are a few tips that can help you choose between the two.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Consider the Convenience Whether on or off campus, all St. Catharine’s student housing offers some convenience. However, this convenience differs depending on where you live. For example, dorm-living is more convenient than apartment-living.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

This makes it beneficial to first-year students and students who want less responsibility. Some of the conveniences of on-campus living, include:

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Quick access to meals, which are prepared in the dining hall No bills Furnished rooms, so students don’t have to move or purchase their own furniture

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Proximity and easy access to school resources, such as the library, study and computer lounges, the bookstore, the dining hall, classrooms, lectures halls, and so much more. Few domestic responsibilities, such as cooking and cleaning

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

On the other hand, off-campus housing has its own set of unique conveniences. For example: A private bathroom that you don’t have to share unless you choose to More space and privacy than dorms

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

A private kitchen where you can prepare your own (healthy) meals No curfew and less rules and regulations than residence halls Access to apartment amenities, such as a game lounge, gym, pool, etc.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Consider the Commute Obviously, on-campus housing is much closer to a university than off-campus housing. However, places like Regent Student Living offers St. Catharine’s student housing that’s in walking distance of the campus.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

So, students can reap the benefits of off-campus living while residing only minutes away from their university. But living on-campus is as close as you can get to your classes, the library and more.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Consider Any Extra Costs No matter where you live, extra costs can add up and make your accommodations more expensive. When living on campus, essentially all standard costs are covered. But you might have to pay for extras, especially ‘luxury’ items, such as certain amenities, parking spots, furnishings or room types .

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

For students living in off-campus housing, extras can be defined as basic utilities, fees for amenities, transportation to and from school, groceries, and even insurance. Unfortunately, these extra costs can make off-campus living too expensive for some students.

PowerPoint 演示文稿:

However, most off-campus, university-approved housing is all-inclusive, so you’ll save money on utilities. Plus, sharing expenses with roommates can make living off campus much more affordable. This is a luxury that isn’t available when living on campus. http://regentstudents.com/
