Off-Campus Housing and Commuting to Campus

As a commuter campus, many of our students choose to live in apartments to experience independent living. Others commute from home all four years to save on housing costs. It depends what's best for you! Some public transit is availiable, but having a car is helpful and parking on campus is free.
