Most students prefer off-campus housing because it brings a little more independence and allows for a more diverse living arrangement between upper- and lowerclassmen. Many students will sign a contract for dorms their first couple of semesters, and then they have a chance to visit some of the apartments and decide on one where they would like to live. Some students prefer living with friends and sign contracts as groups, and others sign up to be with a random group of roommates to meet new people.
Most of the apartments are similar in setup, with three rooms and one bathroom area with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks. There are options for a single room, but the majority of students opt to have shared rooms because of the lesser cost. The higher-priced apartments usually have more options for shared rooms and more modern appliances and design, as well. Typically, women’s housing is better kept than men's housing. But all student-approved housing has regular "clean checks" that ensure students are keeping their apartments clean. The apartments also enforce the Honor Code when students sign their semester/two-semester contract. Students can also save a little money by signing a contract for two semesters instead of one.
